Nathan Biebel, a PhD student in the philosophy department, will lead a discussion on personal identity. We will be asking questions like: What makes me the same person today that I was yesterday? that i have the same body? the same personality? similar thoughts, feelings, and emotions? that i simply believe that I am the same person? In what sense, anyway, am i really the same person today that i was yesterday? Snacks and free Philosophy Club stickers will be available :)
