Anagrace Salem Phil 101 Wishon 14 October 2016 WritingAssignment #6 If I had to choose between these options, I would choose the second option. I chose this option because it seems like you have a second life. Though your body and brain remain the same, your memories and views are completely erased giving you an opportunity to experience new views, thoughts, and memories. This gives you a likelihood of survival because your body and brain is still present, as well as your mind, even though it is different after being erased. This corresponds to the Memory Theory. Although the memory is considered to be the strongest quality of one’s identity, we are still ourselves if we lose it. If we lose our memory, we still have subconscious fragments that will define emotions the same way, like how we laugh at something, how we react in anger, or how we feel when we are sad. These are characteristics we have in behavioral situations that come from a personal identity, whether there is memory or not. Proof of subconscious memory is the evidence and truth that we still know how to laugh, how to read and write, how to start a car, etc. that is still present after memory loss. These are traits that people learn and that are performed without even thinking about it. The problem with the Memory Theory is that is causes question to the Brain Theory. The Brain Theory is more difficult to understand and claim because there are memories that are connected to a person’s brain. The brain theory is a modified argument that is intended to replace the memory theory; moreover, we can raise some good arguments against the memory theory by using brain theory principles. The Brain Theory is an argument that is intentional towards the replacement of the Memory Theory. With that being said, this causes arguments against the Memory Theory by using Brain Theory principles. To conclude, the Memory Theory overall is better than the Brain Theory when explaining personal identity because it can be related to the same physical connection that translates one’s memories into reactions.
