|Title:||Why Personal Identity Matters First and Foremost in Caring About Survival|
|Abstract:||This thesis serves as a counterargument to Derek Parfit’s seminal work in the study of Personal Identity. Parfit claims that if reductionism is the correct ontological view of persons then we cannot give a philosophical defense of our commonsense concern for personal identity over time. He concludes, identity does not matter.|
