A Small Philosophical Guide to Personal Identity

Fabio Patrone



What makes us the persons we are is the set of our psychological characteristics (memories, emotions, desires) or the persistence of our physical characteristics? The issue of personal identity is among the most debated in the history of philosophy since its origins. Making use of a large number of examples taken from the everyday life, this book takes the reader hand into one of the most surprising philosophical themes.
