Locke’s understanding of personhood concerns our memories/consciousness. This is actually not so different than “a thinking thing” from Descartes. Locke’s actual quote is “a thinking intelligent being, that has reason and reflection, and can consider itself as itself, the same thinking thing at different times and places.” The only real difference is the focus on memories/consciousness. We’ll do two separate discussions on this this week.Let’s take an 8 year boy who has a mean neighbor. In revenge, he steals a pie from his neighbor. Later in life, at 30 years old, he is an officer in the army. In war, he steals food from an enemy food depot, and after their victory, he gives a victory speech and tells the story of when he first stole food as a boy. At 70 years old, he retires as a general. In his retirement speech, he remembers being 30 and leading his troops to victory, but he doesn’t remember being 8 years old and stealing the pie, nor does he remember the victory speech where he mentions it. So, the older version does not remember his 8 year old self.Are they the same person? Do memories make a person? Please write an original post and comment on two classmates’ posts.
