The subject: If something changes, in some sense, it becomes different. Throughout our lives we change physically, mentally, emotionally, psychologically; however, despite the many changes, we still have the feeling that we are the same person. How is it possible for a person to change and yet remain the same? Are you now the same person you were 15 years ago? What is it that makes us the same despite the many changes? The problem of personal identity is discussed in notes given in class.
