GUERRERO, Leandro. Philosophical Foundations and Current Perspectives of a Humean Approach to the Problem of Other Minds. Diánoia [online]. 2014, vol.59, n.72, pp.63-84. ISSN 0185-2450.

This paper explores the "other minds problem" from a Humean perspective, with the objective of devising an anti-Cartesian alternative, both theoretical and meta-theoretical. In order to do this, the paper briefly examines some of the most important features of the Humean theory of the self systematically neglected by most interpreters: the prevalence of the passional dimension (intersubjectively rooted) in the gradual formation of the self, and the role of sympathy in that process. We hold the possibility of developing an anti-Cartesian perspective on the basis of an unavoidable meta-theoretical reversal, a genuine practical turn that takes place within the Humean proposal, and which involves a greater emphasis on the primacy of the practical-intersubjective aspect of the self over the theoretical-individualistic one.

Palavras-chave : self; alter ego; sympathy; intersubjectivity; praxis.
