One Scientific theory which tries to explain Personal Identity is “The Spatiotemporal Continuity” for discussing this theory let us define ‘The continuous series’. The continuous series – A series of locations in space and time.

Consider the identity over time of an inanimate object such as a. Abstract. David Wiggins’ book Identity and Spatio-Temporal Continuity opens with the question: “Can a be the same f as b and not the same g as b?More precisely, can this happen even when a or b is itself a g?” Wiggins goes on to claim that this is not a possibility at all when, as he explains, the range of “f” and “g” is restricted to sortal concepts which, in his words Author: Harold W.

Description Identity and spatio-temporal continuity. FB2

In a discussion of David Wiggins's book Identity and Spatio-Temporal Continuity (Oxford, I) published in Mind in October, I ('Wiggins on Identity'), I began by introducing the notion of an absolute equivalence relation, explaining it as an equivalence relation which is such that.

identity in terms of spatio-temporal continuity is itself open to objection. 15 We can imagine a man splitting, amoeba-like, into two simulacra of him- self and it would not make sense to identify either of the resultant men with the original one. This book is a new version of David Wiggins's well-known Sameness and Substance (SS), originally published by Blackwell in Wiggins has painstakingly revised and updated his original text, introducing one new chapter and rewriting another.

Philosophers have asked two different questions about the identity of objects through time: 1) What criteria guide our tracing of an object’s career through time, and; 2) What are. The author's analysis of the theory of the soul treats such topics of lively debate as ontological primacy, spatio-temporal continuity, personal identity, and the relation between mind and body.

Aristotle presents a world populated primarily by individual material objects. This book is a systematic investigation into the metaphysical foundations of identity over time. The author elaborates and evaluates the most common theory about the persistence of objects through time and change, namely the classical theory of spatio-temporal continuity.

The spatio-temporal continuity thesis: that a thing A is the same as the thing B if A and B are connected by a continuous path through space-time.

I said that one way of thinking about the Ship of Theseus is to reflect that in this case these two tests point to different conclusions.

SpatioTemporal Continuity and Physical Object Identity Thomas W. Smythe I One important answer to the question of how we are to identify material objects as identical through time is that material objects must preserve spatio-temporal (s-t, hereafter) continuity.

We do not think that ma­ terial objects are the sorts of things that can moveAuthor: Thomas W. Smythe. Under the sortal concept, 'same wood' or 'same planks', we identify the wood, or the collection of planks which once made up Theseus ship, but now lie rotting in the shipyard. (These ideas originated with David Wiggins' monograph 'Identity and Spatio-Temporal Continuity' (Blackwell) which later appeared in his book 'Sameness and Substance', (OUP).).

It denies identity to objects that we think of as persisting through time. But that leaves us with some problems: What do we replace it with. Spatio-temporal continuity (the intuition behind our alternative (ii), above) is the most promising (and common) suggestion.

A persisting object must trace a continuous path through space-time. spatiotemporal continuity. Quick Reference. The property of well-behaved objects in space and time, that they do not ‘jump’, or in other words if a body exists at one time and a later time, then it exists throughout the interval, and if it is in one place at a time and a different place at a later time, then it traced a path through space.Sameness and Substance Renewed (hereafter, ) is, in effect, a second edition of Wiggins’s book Sameness and Substance (hereafter, ), which in turn expanded and corrected some ideas in his Identity and Spatio-Temporal Continuity (hereafter, ).

All three books have similar aims. The first is to argue, primarily against Geach, that identity is absolute not relative.Derek Parfit was among the first contemporary theorists to explore the relation between identity and ethics explicitly, first in his seminal early s articles, “Personal Identity” and especially “Later Selves and Moral Principles,” and then in his restatement and development of the view in Part III of his book Reasons and.
