Philosophy – Feb 5 through 9

We will have an assessment on Tuesday, February 6. The assessment will cover:

  1. The thought experiment of the Ship of Theseus – What is the source of identity?
  2. The concept of identity “the relation that a thing bears only to itself”. If any two things are identical if and only if they share all the same properties (Leibniz), then what does that suggest about our own identity?
  3. What the difference is between essential properties and accidental properties and how that connects to the concept of identity.
  4. The (fruitless?) quest for meaning in our lives – What is nihilism and how does it relate to existentialism?
  5. Our discussion of Jean Paul Sartre and his question of whether existence precedes essence. Do we really have to write our own essence? Sartre suggests that we have to embrace absurdity (the search for answers in an answerless world) and that this is the only way to authentically discover who we are.
  6. Why does Sartre reject the notion that we can find answers to these kinds of questions from authority figures?
  7. Is it epistemically irresponsible (immoral?) to believe in God. You should be familiar with the arguments of W.K. Clifford and William James.
  8. What is Pascal’s wager?
  9. Where does personal identity come from? Contrast the body theory with the memory theory. Why did everyone in class (both periods) agree on what the “right” answer should be for the “mad scientists switches peoples’ brains” thought experiment?
  10. What does the shifting sense of personal identity suggest about our obligations to others?
  11. You should be aware of the different perspectives on personhood. What does it mean to be a person (a being worthy of moral consideration)? You should be familiar with the genetic criterion, the cognitive criteria (Mary Anne Warren), and the social criterion. You should be able to point out examples of something that is/isn’t covered by each that would cause one to question how useful that criterion/set of criteria is/are.

Coming out of the assessment we will start to link up ideas of identity and personhood with the broader topic of ethics.
