Transcript Title: PERSONAL IDENTITY 
UC QTR Units - Division: 4.5 - Upper Division 
Course Description: This course considers many questions related to the problem of personal identity such as: am I the same person today that I was ten years ago; if so, why; is my survival as a person tied to the survival of my body or to the continuation of my memories; could I survive in another body, if my memories were to be transferred to it; should we find new ways of thinking about persons. The problem of personal identity was first raised in its present form by John Locke and remains a central concern of philosophers today. The course pursues the answers to these questions by reading and discussing key texts of the debate on personal identity from John Locke to Derek Parfit and beyond.
