"This book will be of interest for the many who are concerned with Hume's discussion of personal identity, and particularly for those who want to explore whether the engaging yet controversial New Hume reading can be extended to address the interpretive puzzles of Hume's discussion of personal identity." -- Journal of the History of Philosophy5/5(1).

As Hume says in the Appendix to the Treatise of Human Nature: having 'loosen'd all our particular perceptions' in the bundle theory, he is unable to 'explain the principle of connexion, which binds them together'.

Book Description. In this volume--the first, focused study of Hume on time and identity--Baxter focuses on Hume’s treatment of the concept of numerical identity, which is central to Hume's famous discussions of the external world and personal identity.

This book offers a new reading of Hume’s theory of personal identity — his ‘bundle theory’ of the self or mind — and his later rejection of that theory.

Hume argues, regardless to how complex a possible solution to the notion of a persisting identity might be, that this distinct substance of the ‘self’ is a gap-filling fiction. Hume thought that this tendency goes a long way towards explaining mistaken views about personal identity.

For, he thought, when we encounter several different things existing in succession and differing gradually, one from the next, “This resemblance is the cause of the confusion and mistake, and makes us substitute the notion of identity.
