Course Description

The Philosophy of Personal Identity studies what makes you the same person as you were when you were younger. We will analyse some traditional theories and see if we can improve on them. Based on 1st year undergraduate seminars I used to teach, which were great fun.
None - just for fun!
I used to teach this course to first year undergraduates during my PhD.
This course might make you think and make your brain hurt!
