Tracking Persons Over Time is Tracking What?

Abstract

Tracking persons, that is, determining that a person now is or is not a specific earlier person, is extremely common and widespread in our way of life and extremely important. If so, figuring out what we are tracking, what it is to persist as a person over a period of time, is also important. Trying to figure this out will be the main focus of this paper. (This paper will introduce a theme on tracking persons in Topics in Cognitive Science.)
