Question

    ”Explain Parfit’s objection to Shoemaker's handling of fission cases. How does Parfit reconcile his commitment to psychological continuity1 and connectedness with his recognition of the difficulties presented by fission and duplication cases? Explain Parfit’s positive theory and how it radically departs from earlier accounts of personal identity and survival.”
