Johnston provides a detailed and intricate conception of personal identity and then connects that conception to a particular conception of goodness in a unique and intellectual interesting manner. Ultimately, Johnston is attempting to answer the question of why one should be good if death is the end of a particular identity's existence, which is a standard naturalistic claim. By radically reframing the notions of personal identity and life after death1, Johnston is able to provide a unique and conceptually intricate account of how a naturalist can maintain both the importance of living a good life and surviving death.
