  • Locke Personal Identity Theory Analysis

    One problem in Locke’s ideas is whether or not consciousness alone is a necessary condition for sameness of personal identity, meaning that an individual is only the same person if they have a conscious memory of an action performed by them. By Locke’s logic, any individual in the future could have a conscious memory of an action performed by another individual from these times, and therefore be the same person, but not the same human – and therefore would not be punished for any negative actions performed by the individual from the past. However, Locke also wrote that it is possible for substance and personal identity to transfer to other humans, which would mean that in the future another individual could be punished for the other individual’s actions even though they have no conscious memory of ever having performed it. These reasons suggest that unlike Locke argues, having a conscious memory of the past alone, cannot be the only necessary condition for being the same person. This is because there are many scenarios where most would consider an individual the same person, but they may not be conscious of it, and there are many scenarios where a person appears to have a conscious memory of being someone else, but is not the same person.

  • Piety And Impiety In Euthyphro

    Put into other words, it seems Socrates is edging upon a cause and effect principle. Affectively he is saying that a thing’s being acted on in a certain way explains why it has an altered condition, where as a thing’s being in an altered condition does not explain why it underwent the process which resulted in that alteration. However, things being carried are altered by being carried, a necessary condition for it to be considered a carried thing, while a thing that is loved does not need to be…

    boundary between science and pseudoscience. Despite the substantial efforts putting into the demarcation problem, none of those well-known demarcation criteria successfully classify science or pseudoscience. The failure to provide a universally accepted demarcation, or at least gain acceptance from a majority of the community, leads to two assumptions: the unique features shared by all sciences are not yet found; alternatively, there is no such criteria distinguish science and pseudoscience,…
