Description

Papers consider medieval philosophical accounts of personal identity. These accounts are closely linked with speculation regarding the fate of the soul after death, helping to flesh out the medieval notion of what it is of us that survives the transition into the afterlife and why this and not some other aspect of what we take to be the self.
