Author’s Abstract

  1. I argue that the account I gave of Derek Parfit1’s dividing self-case in "Perry (John) - Can the Self Divide?" does not depend on a dubious four-dimensionalist metaphysics as claimed by "Olson (Eric) - Review of Perry's 'Identity, Personal Identity, and the Self'" (2006).
  2. I explain my metaphysics of time, and then re-describe my solution in “Can the Self Divide?” comparing it to treatments of the dividing selves by Parfit and Lewis2.
