Philosophers Index Abstract
"Could" someone remember doing or experiencing something that someone deceased did or experienced? if they could, "has" anyone ever done so? if they have, does this fact increase the likelihood that some people have survived their bodily deaths? I argue that the answer to all of these questions is 'yes'. I explain why physical continuity matters in survival even though it is not necessary to identity, and hence why psychological-continuity theorists such as parfit1 give a distorted account of what matters2 in survival.
From "Noonan (Harold), Ed. - Personal Identity (Readings)".
