SPF: The Self

Smith Building | Smith Room 107

Our conversation about suffering led us to think about consciousness and the self. As time passes and we go through changes, it seems like our selves endure. We remain the same person who undergoes changes. Both the Buddha and David Hume challenge this assumption. Introspection only reveals ideas and emotions, but not self which has these ideas and emotions. Descartes posited an immaterial substance, mind, which makes us who we are. The self was the first thing we could be certain existed. Others reject Cartesian dualism and identify the self with the body. I am the same person so long as the body remains the same. To get us thinking, read this short, entertaining essay by Daniel Dennett. He goes through a series of challenging thought experiments to try to answer the simple question, where am I?
