Abstract

Although scholars studying the identity of persons usually address diverging issues and have different research agendas, there is a growing awareness that one may benefit from insights and results present in other disciplines dealing with that subject. This explains the enthusiastic responses to the invitation of the Netherlands School for Research in Practical Philosophy and the Institute for Ethics of the Vrije Universiteit to participate in a seminar on ‘Personal and Moral Identity’.
