Since everyone was contradicting themselves left and right in the last discussion, we need to do this one again… Perhaps there was ambiguity in my questions, but nonetheless, this is an important dilemma for Locke and we’re going to get it right.There once was a boy who stole from a neighbor. Much later, this boy grew into an old man that now has ZERO shared memories with that boy. John Locke would say that the boy and the old man are not the same person because “person” means “recognizing one’s self over time”, which is impossible to do without shared memories. We even use phrases like “he’s not himself anymore” when referring to why people with Alzheimer’s act so differently than we have grown to expect of the person.Do you need to recognize yourself over time to be the same person? If not, what makes the same person the same over time?Again, please comment with your own original post, then reply to two classmates.
