In Search of the Simple View

In G. Gasser & M. Stefan (eds.), Personal Identity: Complex or Simple? Cambridge University Press (forthcoming)
Accounts of personal identity over time are supposed to fall into two broad categories: 'complex views' saying that our persistence consists in something else, and 'simple views' saying that it doesn' t. But it is impossible to characterize this distinction in any satisfactory way. The debate has been systematically misdescribed. After arguing for this claim, the paper says something about how the debate might be better characterized
