|Title:||On Second Thought, Let’s Take the Stairs or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Teletransporter|
|Abstract:||This thesis explored the issues surrounding Personal Identity as argued in Parfit’s Reasons and Persons. Beginning with Parfit’s Reductionism and his arguments on the unimportance of Identity, I sought to determine the importance of identity in survival and whether Parfit’s Relation R accurately reflected the important things in survival. I argued that Parfit’s rejection of the self failed to reflect what we hold to be intuitively important, and that an intermediate Reductionist View that still valued identity was more attractive.|
