The Stoics on Identity.
Department of Languages - Modern Greek
A useful corrective to the increasingly ahistorical approach in much contemporary philosophy is an appreciation of the fact, often neglected these days, that many of the themes currently at the centre-stage of philosophical discussion were not merely raised by the Greeks but dealt with along lines that ring familiar to modern ears. A case in point is the issue of individuation in contemporary analytic metaphysics, in particular as it arises in connection with the problem of change. It will emerge that various moves in the recent literature have affinities with and indeed were anticipated by the Stoics in their treatment of puzzles of mereological change.
