Abstract

The interpretation of David Hume's idea of personal identity teaches us that there is no self or mind endowed with simplicity and perfect identity and in which Hume defends a specific theory about the nature of the self or mind, according to which it is only a set of perceptions. Descartes is the one who assumes the self as the soul that shows itself more clearly. For this rationalist philosopher, the mind or "res cogitans" is a substance whose characteristics are simplicity and permanence, and differs from physical substances or "res extensa" because it does not possess spirituality and freedom.
