Picturing persistence

Analysis 71 (4):637-641 (2011)
David Lewis suggests and dismisses two ways, and endorses one further way, of visually representing persisting objects as changing over time.

This paper argues that Lewis's objections on these grounds to alternative theories of persistence and intrinsic change can be resisted, and that his argument in favour of his preferred method of drawing changing persisting objects fails to show that objects perdure
