Personal Identity

Convention

(Text as at 18/12/2010 19:58:05)

(For earlier versions of this Note, see the table at the end)


This section will cover whether it is ever right to say that whether a thing persists or not is merely a matter of convention. Because of the existence of a first-person perspective1, it seems difficult to imagine in the case of persons, but it may be true of artefacts2.

This is mostly a place-holder3. Currently, just see the categorised reading-list (if any).
