Question

    ”According to Lewis, what makes it the case that a person at t1 is the same person as a person at t2? (Apply both his account of personhood and his general account of persistence to this question.) Explain the sense in which Lewis largely endorses Parfit’s1 account of personhood, though he does differ in arguing that identity is still what matters2 to survival (e.g., that the I-relation is the R-relation.)”
