Author’s Abstract1

    In Chapter II, I set the stage for the identification of that which serves as the basis for personal identity by indicating some of the challenges to this concept which, however, do not result in the dismissal of the everyday use of the concept. Instead of assuming that the person in the street is simply misguided in this matter, I search for a plausible reason why the notion of personal identity is retained.
