Investigating the Philosophical Dilemma of Personal Identity in the Movie Ship of Theseus
Keywords:Philosophical Dilemma, personal identity, Ship of Theseus
The philosophical issue of personal identity has been delved into by numerous distinguished philosophers like John Locke and David Hume in order to understand what precisely constitutes personal identity. The present paper is also an attempt to understand the constitution of personal identity through the famous philosophical paradox made into a movie of the same name, Ship of Theseus. The paper analyzes the philosophical issues presented in the movie through three interwoven stories and probes into the questions related to identity, self, consciousness, and ethics. The analysis carried in the paper will attempt to uncover if the paradox can be resolved or remains irresolvable.
