    The causes have no proper efficiency or causality, as far as we know; and all we can certainly affirm, is, that nature hath established a constant conjunction between them and the things called their effects. Robinson, D. By contrast, on Reid's concept, the sensus communis is not a social evolutionary product but rather a precondition of the possibility that humans could reason with each other. Reid captures Locke on the horns of a dilemma: either the self is a substance, in which case it remains identical over time, or the self is not a substance, in which case there is no personal identity. Reid believes in direct objectivity, our senses guide us to what is right since we cannot trust our own thoughts.

    For Reid, the perception of the child is different from the adult, and he states that man must become like a child to get past the artificial perception of the adult, which leads to Hume's view that what we perceive is an illusion. The second argument is from moral responsibility. Reid holds that memory is not a current apprehension of an event already presented in a past apprehension.

According to Reid, episodic memory is not a current apprehension of a past event, nor is it a current apprehension of a past experience.

Reid interprets Hume as holding that these three faculties do not differ in kind, but rather in the degree of force and vivacity of the ideas that are their objects. Knapton, 2nd corrected edition. Scenes of him caring for a young calf lead onto depictions of the more brutal side of farming.

The language used by the officials in restaged conversations drips with phrases that seem chosen to deflect understanding. However, on this account, given that sameness of memory is a necessary condition for sameness of person, if a person at time tn does not remember episodically an event that occurred at time t1, then the person at time tn cannot be identical with any person who was witness or agent to the event at time t1.
