This Page provides a concatenation of all the Notes associated with the topic of Personal Identity.

Previous versions used to print all the text of the Notes, but the pages got far too large, So now only the Titles are listed, with links to the Notes, and various statistics are shown.

Theo Todman's Notes


Personal Identity Notes Jump Table

Note-Group Purpose: My “Personal Identity” Notes are those preliminary to the writing of my Thesis. In principle, there is one for each sub-topic, though new ones keep cropping up. Most of them are of the “Plug Note” variety – fairly random thoughts with a reading list. I’ve recently added the – usually skeletal – Chapters of my Thesis to the Jump Table. Comments on the papers in the reading lists don’t appear here – they appear either as Comments against the Books or Papers, or else as Write-Ups.

Note Qualities: for an explanation of the colouration in the table above, see the table below! "Note Quality" is a new feature, is somewhat experimental, and subject to checking and refinement.

None Specified  
High Quality Note quality relates both to its intrinsic – albeit subjective – quality, and to its completeness and / or length. I’ll try to refine this over time. Also, as I only have 3 levels, it is relative. It is supposed to tell the reader whether it’s worth clicking and reading, and to remind me of work yet to be done! So, “High Quality” Notes are the best I’ve got – usually long and complete and – hopefully – worth reading. 
High Quality - PDF As above, but currently existing only as pdfs, awaiting conversion to Note format. As this is a laborious task, it’s work in progress. Most of these pdfs were produced during my undergraduate days in 2000 – 2003. 
Medium Quality “Medium Quality” Notes are usually those on which I’ve made significant progress but are still incomplete – being either still work in progress, or Notes that I got stuck on or bored with. Occasionally they are complete but short. 
Medium Quality - PDF As above, but currently existing only as pdfs, awaiting conversion to Note format. These were produced during my undergraduate days in 2000 – 2003, and were left incomplete because I ran out of time, or got bored or stuck. 
Low Quality “Low Quality” Notes are usually just place-holders, or Notes I’ve just started. 
Low Quality - PDF As above, but in pdf form. There shouldn't be any! 
Plug Note - With Reading List These may be quite extensive – particularly if they have worked-out reading lists – but usually contain the disclaimer: “A number of my philosophical Notes are “promissory notes” currently only listing the books and papers (if any) I possess on the topic concerned. I’ve decided to add some text – whether by way of motivation, or something more substantive – for all these identified topics related to my Thesis. As I want to do this fairly quickly, the text may be confused or show surprising ignorance. The reader (if such exists) will have to bear with me, and display the principle of charity while this footnote exists.” 
Plug Note - Reading List TBA As above, but the reading list is yet to be supplied.
