Raymond Martin's book is a major contribution to the philosophical literature on the nature of the self, personal identity, and survival. Its distinctive methodology is one that is phenomenologically descriptive rather than metaphysical and normative. This is the first book of analytic philosophy directly on the phenomenology of identity and survival. It aims to build bridges between analytic and phenomenological traditions and, thus, to open up a new field of investigation.Read more
- Taps into a deep philosophical debate about the nature of personal identity and survival
- Highly original thesis that bridges the gap between analytic and phenomenological approaches to philosophy
- Martin has several books to his credit, most recently, The Past Within Us (Princeton, 1989)
