Ajane, Craig PHL 100 Professor Katz 4/7/16 Craig 1 Week 12 of PHL 100 Notes Who am I? If a person A, who exists at one time, and person B exists at another time, are the same person, what makes them the same? (What do they have in common?) Ex: Mat in 1982 (person A) Vs. Mat in 2016 (person B) What do these two have in common such that they’re the same person? Possible answers: Physical characteristics and not personality ( looking the same) If A and B were the same person then they look similar And If A and B look similar then A and B are the same person John Locke “Man” Some successive body “Person” Thinking, intelligent being Physical objects Collection of features (think of needles in the pincushion) + A bare particular (think of pincushion) What Locke means for the “soul” is = bare particular for human beings Ajane, Craig PHL 100 Professor Katz 4/7/16 Craig 2 Collection of features/ properties (same physical, same mental) features this indistinguishable from any other bare particular + Bare particular Locke’s argument The soul is not the answer to our question: Because goals are undetectable, we don’t know if we leave the same soul today as yesterday, or as a minute ago or if souls “bounce” from person to person. \ Argument that its consciousness, not the body. Imagine the consciousness of a prince leaving the body of a prince and enters the body of a cobbler (shoe repair man) and vice versa Ex: Freaky Friday, The change up Everyone else would treat the creature with prince consciousness as the prince, and the creature with cobbler, consciousness as the cobbler.
