Section : Thisness (Haecceity)

Top Jump Table
Previous Page: Thinking Animal ArgumentNext Page: Thought Experiments

These are the papers on the subject of Personal Identity (and related topics) that I've collected, sorted by Sub-Topic. My intention is to provide abstracts for them all, with jumping off points for further thoughts. However, this might take several lifetimes.
