The Metaphysics of Identity

We have an individual Deon who loses his left foot. Before the loss of his left foot there appear to be two individuals occupying nearly all of the region where Deon is located. One is Deon with left foot attached.

The philosophical problem of identity and the related problem of change go back to the ancient Greek philosophers and fascinated later figures including Leibniz, Locke, and Hume. Heraclitus argued that one could not swim in the same river twice because new waters were ever flowing in. When is a river not the same river? If one removes one plank at a time when is a ship no longer a ship? What is the basic nature of identity and persistence? In this book, André Gallois introduces and assesses the philosophical puzzles posed by things persisting through time. Beginning with essential historical background to the problem he explores the following key topics and debates: mereology and identity, including arguments from 'Leibniz's Law' the constitution view of identity the 'relative identity' argument concerning identity temporary identity four-dimensionalism, counterpart and multiple counterpart theory supervenience the problem of temporary intrinsics the necessity of identity Indeterminate identity presentism criteria of identity conventionalism about identity. Including chapter summaries, annotated further reading and a glossary, this book is essential reading for anyone seeking a clear and informative introduction to and assessment of the metaphysics of identity.

'The undisputed champion of South African crime. Meyer grabs you but the throat and never lets you go' Wilbur Smith 'From its startling opening to its tense and thrilling conclusion, Deon Meyer's The Last Hunt takes you on a whirlwind safari across two continents. In the whole of the Benny Griessel series so far, the stakes have never been higher or the odds so much against' Peter Robinson *** A cold case for Captain Benny Griessel and Vaughn Cupido of the Hawks elite police unit - not what they were looking for. And a difficult case, too. The body of Johnson Johnson, ex-cop, has been found beside a railway line. He appears to have jumped from South Africa's - perhaps the world's - most luxurious train, and two suspicious characters seen with him have disappeared into thin air. The regular police have already failed to make progress and others are intent on muddying the waters. Meanwhile in Bordeaux, Daniel Darret is settled in a new life on a different continent. A quiet life. But his skills as an international hit-man are required one more time, and Daniel is given no choice in the matter. He must hunt again - his prey the corrupt president of his homeland. Three strands of the same story become entwined in a ferocious race against time - for the Hawks to work out what lies behind the death of Johnson, for Daniel to evade the relentless Russian agents tracking him, for Benny Griessel to survive long enough to take another huge step in his efforts to piece together again the life he nearly destroyed - and finally ask Alexa Bernard to marry him. The Last Hunt shows one of the great crime writers operating at the peak of his powers.

"It's like Black Mirror with a Paranormal edge." It's the fear we all have using the internet: Who is watching? What have I left out there?

That up-by-the-bootstraps story alone probably would've been enough to bring us out to the desert to visit him, but Deon's tale gets even more compelling. It began when the adult Deon went back to the South Side on a visit to his mom.

Welcome to “Evolving from the Cocoon” A Memoir of Learning from my Past. In this book I offer accurate portions of my life that has assisted me in the transformation of becoming the best version of me possible. Growing up I was always that quiet-shy kid. I never truly felt comfortable asking questions because I wanted everyone to like me. To avoid conflict and confrontation, I learned to keep to myself. By doing so, I often found myself depressed because I couldn’t figure out why my life seemed to be so abnormal and unfulfilling. Growing older, that one-word question kept finding a way to repeat itself in my head over and over...WHY??? For years that question burned in my heart especially as I entered adulthood. Then it happened! The answer finally hit me! “Your pain may be someone else’s gain!” I thought to myself, “WOW!” The things that troubled me in the past are to be shared with others. My bad decisions and bloopers were indeed blessings. All the mishaps and not so good experiences in my life were to serve as inspiration and encouragement to people like me. I had to gain my voice so that eventually I could be a voice for others. No longer limited by the cocoon, I discovered I can fly high and gracefully like the butterfly.


It ends with Deon telling Bruns he had better be at his house at noon if he expects to live to have sons. Of course, after the fact everybody wanted to know why somebody didn't intervene. Bruns did go at lunchtime to Deon's.

Whether they are Americans, Brits, or a stubborn and suicidally moral Dutchman, Norman Rush's whites are not sure why they are in Botswana. Their uncertainty makes them do odd things. Driven half-mad by the barking of his neighbor's dogs, Carl dips timidly into native witchcraft—only to jump back out at the worst possible moment. Ione briskly pursues a career as a "seducer" ("A seductress was merely someone who was seductive and who might or might not be awarded a victory. But a seducer was a professional"), while her dentist husband fends off the generous advances of an African cook. Funny, sad, and deeply knowing, polished throughout to a diamond glitter, Whites is a magnificent collection of stories.

"Crime and gentrification represent hot button issues in racially-diverse neighborhoods. Drawing on three and a half years of ethnographic fieldwork, Us Versus Them provides a detailed analysis of community conflict in Rogers Park and Uptown, two Chicago neighborhoods. The book shows how competing views about neighborhood change divided residents into two political camps, which prioritized either the fight against crime or the fight against gentrification. This division frequently materialized as a type of racial conflict, because anti-gentrification activists and their allies charged that grassroots anti-crime initiatives were, in truth, barely covert racist practices that meant to foster racial displacement and marginalization. Chapter by chapter, the book traces these conflicts in different areas of community life. It examines the strategies of public safety work that residents used to fight crime and how their efforts contributed to gentrification; how anti-gentrification activists resisted criminalization and gentrification; how politicians sought to actively use or downplay community divisions in their electoral campaigns; and how residents of different racial and ethnic backgrounds positioned themselves in these battles"--
