Matt Duncan, "We Are Not Self Made"

Eastern Australia Time - Sydney
Philosophy Seminar RoomSimulcast via
Zoom: https://uni-sydney.zoom.us/j/87937027507Abstract: Most
philosophers who have addressed the topics of personal ontology or personal
identity have thought that our existence in and through time is objective,
non-relative, invariant, and totally independent of what we take ourselves
to be. However, an opposing view is becoming more popular--one whereby what
we are in and through time depends on, and is determined by, what we take
ourselves to be. This latter view is intriguing, but I will argue
that it has a fatal defect—one that applies to any view (whether
actual or merely potential) whereby what we are is determined by what we
take ourselves to be. This defect has to do with what might constitute a
“take” on ourselves. I will argue that there is no way of construing a
“take” such that we (either individually or corporately) have a take on
what we are that can do the work defenders of any take-dependent view need
it to do. Thus, I will conclude that what we are
is not determined by what we take ourselves to be. In this sense,
we are not self-made.
