PEREIRA, José Aparecido. Reid's critique of the conception of personal identity in Locke. Trans/Form/Ação [online]. 2012, vol.35, n.1, pp.37-46. ISSN 0101-3173.

This article discusses Reid's critical analysis of Locke's theory of personal identity. Two significant consequences of this analysis are pointed out: a) that if the same consciousness can be transferred from one intelligent being to another, then two or twenty intelligences may be the same person; b) that a man can be, and at the same time not be, the person who practices a given action. Taking these consequences as a starting point, Reid expounds some considerations on the topic.

Keywords : critique; identity; person; consciousness; memory.
