Example text

The solution which Hume offers to this difficulty is as follows: “The mind can perceive, from its immediate feeling, that three guineas produce a greater passion than two; and this it transfers to larger numbers, because of resemblance; and by a general rule assigns to a thousand guineas a stronger passion than to nine hundred and ninety-nine”. 2 Hume also speaks of the mind as having “organs” for each of the passions (Op. cit. II, 1, 5; II, 2, 11). 15 THE PASSIONS OF THE SOUL and the other is produced by it.

The respiratory and cardiac changes recorded by Blatz in his experiments on fear occurred also, with differences only in degree, when the experimental subjects paid a second visit to the tilting chair, though neither they nor the experimenter were then prepared to describe their feelings as feelings of fear. 1 Were we to identify the emotions with bodily phenomena of this kind, we should have to say that shame differed from rage in degree and not in kind, and that a feeling of apprehension, if it grew stronger, would turn into passionate love.

16 THE PASSIONS OF THE SOUL could no more teach us that it was connected with the idea of self than an a priori examination of a stone could show that it would fall downward if unsupported (Cf. Enquiry, IV). It always happens that we feel proud of our own achievements and not, say, of the industry of ants in stone-age Papua; but the suggestion that we might feel proud of such things is as perfectly intelligible as the suggestion that the trees might flourish in December and decay in June. The idea of self is not part of the nature of pride and humility;1 all that belongs to this is a particular experience.
