Are YOU the same person today (in 2021) that YOU were in 2011? The answer to this question illuminates the philosophical problem of persistence (identity over time). It is typically answered with one of four theories. A person is the same person because: She has the same body (somatic theory/physicalism): She has memories of being the person from 2005 (Psychological Theory); She is both material (body) and immaterial (soul or memories) [dualism]; or “She” doesn’t exist because personhood is an illusion (Anti-criterialism) This paper asks you to Answer that question using at least two of the four theories to support your answer; Pose a possible objection to ONE of the theories; and Answer that objection in a way that supports your thesis. Helpful Steps Write down your instinctive answer/s to the question. Determine which theory backs up your instinctive answer. Define each theory and explain them using your own words Using an example, demonstrate how the theory supports your answer Present an objection to ONE theory Define the objection and fully explain it in your own words Using an example, demonstrate how the objection underminbgles your answer Answer the objection
