This article examines Samuel Taylor Coleridge's works at self-representations. It explains that Coleridge recorded the inexhaustively re-ebullient forms of his consciousness inspired by the ferment of philosophical discussion about persons initiated by David Hume. Coleridge believed that experiencing the self was intensely dramatic and wondrous, and he sought the cohesive force which binds the multiple aspects of the self together, the power that makes the multiplicity a one, multum in unum.

Keywords: Samuel Taylor Coleridge; self-representations; consciousness; David Hume; self; multum in unum
