While doing a web search on self-identity I came across Max More's 1995 PhD
dissertation, which examines some of the questions I was asking earlier
about the continuity of the personality over a period of time.
I didn't find many discussions of these questions in the list archives, but
the archives only went back a few years, so maybe there was more discussion
of self identity earlier on.
If there's anyone on the list who hasn't already read the dissertation and
would be interested in looking at it, the table of contents is located at
