DAVID HUME E IL CARATTERE: TRA CRITICA DELL’IDENTITÀ PERSONALE E RIFLESSIONE SULLA MORALE
Parole chiave:Modern Philosophy, Moral Philosophy, David Hume, Character
AbstractHume never develops the concept of character in any systematic way, but the following text maintains that this concept is very fruitful for giving a general interpretation of Hume’s «science of man». The character’s conceptual space in not the same of «personal identity» that Hume criticizes in Treatise’s book I. The character has a central part in morality and in social life and it is a methodological instrument to show the prevailing role of passions and sentiments in human nature.
