Discusses three claims that have been assumed in previous chapters: that we exist; that there is such a thing as absolute numerical identity; and that we are not composed of temporal parts. One could avoid many of the book's arguments by denying any one of these claims.

Keywords: four‐dimensionalism; identity; relative identity; temporal parts
