The Four-Dimensional World

Analysis 37 (1):32 - 39 (1976)
This paper defends the view of continuants as 'four-Dimensional worms' against an argument of geach's. This is to the effect that if continuants are four-Dimensional worms then their stages either do, Or do not, Fall under the very general terms satisfied by the continuants themselves (a stage of a man either is, Or is not, A man); but that either alternative is untenable. I try to show how the former alternative may be defended by appealing to some of geach's own ideas about identity; then go on to defend the four-Dimensionalist view from a criticism of it by d h mellor, And finish with an account of the intuitive distinction between process and continuant terms
