Explain John Locke’s account of personal identity. Do you agree with Locke? Explain your answer with evidences. Thomas Reid claims that identity can only be attributed to things that have continued existence. Since consciousness is transient and sometimes interrupted, it cannot constitute personal identity. How could Locke respond to this objection? Explain Reid’s example of the brave officer and the problem it poses for Locke’s theory of personal identity. Describe two ways in which Locke could respond to the brave-office problem. Support your evaluations with reasons.
