Transworld Individuals and their Identity

Show Summary Details

Preview

A transworld identity criterion for individuals is given after the fashion of the closest-continuer criterion of transtemporal identity. The crux of the closest-continuer view is separated from the causal theory. The vagueness of the transworld identity criterion is defended, and the semantic view of vagueness is provisionally endorsed.

Keywords: closest continuer; identity; transworld; vague
