Question

  1. Explain the difference between a quasi-memory1 and a genuine memory, as Shoemaker uses these terms.
  2. Describe a situation, discussed by Shoemaker, in which (apparently) distinct people quasi-remember2 the same experience “from the inside”.
  3. What problem does this raise for a psychological theory of personal identity?
  4. How does Shoemaker address this problem?”
