Olson, E.T. (2006) Imperfect identity. Proceedings of the Aristotelian Society, 106 (2). pp. 247-264. ISSN 1467-9264
Questions of identity over time are often hard to answer. A long tradition has it that such questions are somehow soft: they have no unique, determinate answer, and disagreements about them are merely verbal. I argue that this claim is not the truism it is taken to be. Depending on how it is understood, it turns out either to be false or to presuppose a highly contentious metaphysical claim.
