Interactive video lesson plan for: 10. Personal identity, Part I: Identity across space and time and the soul theory

Activity overview:

Death (PHIL 176)

The lecture focuses on the question of the metaphysical key to personal identity. What does it mean for a person that presently exists to be the very same person in the future? The first approach to answering this question is the "soul theory," that is, the key to being the same person is having the same soul. Difficulties with that approach are then discussed, independent of the question whether souls exist or not.
