The Survival of the Self

Front Cover
Ashgate, Jan 1, 1998 - Philosophy - 213 pages
This work demonstrates that a necessary condition of personal identity is the continuous existence of the self. Features include: the use of the pure consciousness experience to support the idea of self; a summary of criticism of doubtful conclusions drawn from commissurotomy; and the argument for rejecting the possibility of personal fission. The book is aimed at professional philosophers, cognitive scientists, psychologists, and theologians.
