Four previously unpublished and seven revised essays, written between the late 1960s and 2002, are presented by Perry (philosophy, Stanford U.). He grapples with issues of identity and personal identity, addressing the works of other philosophers and posing his own questions. Among the major themes are the relativity of individuation, the role of memory in personal identity, and the problems of self- knowledge. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
