Select one of the following two philosophers:
Thomas Reid, John Locke. Answer the following question: do you agree with this philosopher’s position on whether Theseus’ ship is the same ship at the beginning and end of the voyage? In your essay, you should (1) clearly explain this philosopher’s position on whether or not Theseus’ ship stays the same over time, and (2) justify your answer based on their philosophical system. You should then (3) consider possible objections to your analysis. Finally, you should (4) explain whether you think this philosopher’s position on the sameness/difference of Theseus’ ship is correct or not. Remember: the chosen philosopher probably does not have the same stance on personal identity as they do on the identity of Theseus’ Ship over time.
