Summary
"From the time of Locke, discussions of personal identity have often ignored the question of our basic metaphysical nature: whether we human people are biological organisms, spatial or temporal parts of organisms, bundles of perceptions, or what have you. The result of this neglect has been centuries of wild proposals and clashing intuitions." "What Are We? is the first general study of this important question. It begins by explaining what the question means and how it differs from others, such as questions of personal identity and of the mind-body problem. It then examines the main possible accounts of our metaphysical nature and suggests a way of choosing among them."--BOOK JACKET
