Hume Studies 4 (2):41-63 (1978)
This article seeks, in the light of modern discussions of personal identity, to examine several arguments brought by reid against hume's account of the self as a "bundle of perceptions," and concludes that, although some of the arguments are powerful, both the linguistic, metaphysical and ethical ones, nevertheless a modified version of hume's theory can meet them
