chapter  8
Boundaries of Persons

In the last chapter we argued that the best account of personal survival (strictly: the concept of personal survival in terms of which we ought to think) involves only the notion of psychological connectedness, containing no reference to bodily identity. We shall begin this section by exploring this idea in greater detail. The discussion will fall into three parts, the first two dealing with aspects of the idea of survival over time, and the third returning to the question of personal identification at a time.
