MEMORY IN HUME'S DOCTRINE ON CAUSALITY AND IDENTITY OF SELF

Shevtsov Konstantin Pavlovich
St. Petersburg State University


Abstract. Hume's skepticism is constructed around two fundamental paradoxes: the paradox of causality and the identity of self. The empirical principle of the construction of science about man, stated in Treatise of Human Nature, leads to the recognition of the impossibility of the conclusion from cause to effect, as well as to the rejection of the substantial interpretation of soul and the definition of self as the connective of perceptions. The author shows that Hume's argumentation suggests the reliance on the internal causation of human nature, where memory and habit are its main evidence.
Key words and phrases: память, привычка, причинно-следственная связь, тождество, сознание "я", аффекты, предрасположенности, впечатления, memory, habit, cause-and-effect relation, identity, awareness of "self", affects, predispositions, impressions.
