Aristotle on Identity and Persistence (Article)
Title: Aristotle on Identity and Persistence
Author: John Bowin
Abstract: In antiquity, the problem of persistence through time is usually associated with certin puzzles or paradoxes, such as the Ship of Theseus and Epicharmus' Growing Argument, which call into question the assumption that an enduring entity can gain and shed properties while still remaining numerically the same.
