Marya Schechtman is Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Illinois, Chicago.
"This excellent and engaging book succeeds in raising questions about the dominant approach to asking questions about our identities and our concern for the future, as well as in offering ... the beginnings of an alternative way to ask and answer such questions. That's quite a lot of philosophical work in such a short book."-Ethics "Schechtman has greatly enriched the discussion of personal identity. This stimulating book enlarges our sense of the philosophically possible."-Christopher Williams, University of Nevada at Reno, The Philosophical Review. October, 1998. "Stimulating and original. I do not know of any other philosopher who connects the two areas of research on personal identity in the way that Marya Schechtman does. The writing is exceptionally clear."-David Wong, Brandeis University
