This paper begins with an overview of Buddhism and the idea of enduring self. It then provides greater detail on this subject in an account of personal continuity explained in Buddhism through the teaching of Dependent Origination (paticca-samuppada). The paper explores what Western philosophers like Locke and Hume think about this concept. This is followed by a comparison and contrast of both the Eastern and Western views in order to arrive at a satisfactory conclusion of whether or not a person requires an enduring self to be someone who is harmonious with his/her world.
