Essay Prompt [address all five parts]

Wolverine, in Amnesia, Personal Identity, and the Many Lives of Wolverine by Jason Southworth, demonstrates many of the issues and ideas inherent in the concept of personal identity. Use this reading to:

[a] Clearly state the main the thesis of Southworth’s essay. What is Southworth trying to illustrate to the reader? What are his major premises?

[b] Explain the “powers” exemplified by Wolverine. What capabilities does Wolverine have, which ordinary people do not possess? Or rather, what makes Wolverine unique?

[c] Southworth says “moral culpability” depends on how one understands personal identity. Likewise, John Locke tells us the idea of “justice” depends ultimately on how one understand personal identity. What do Southworth and Locke mean by their respective statements?

[d] Explain fully John Locke’s understanding of personal identity. How does Wolverine exemplify Locke’s notions of identity? Is Wolverine, per Southworth’s concept of “moral culpability” and Locke’s concept of “justice,” responsible for his actions prior to his many “reprogrammings?” If so, in what way is he responsible? Does your answer change when you consider Wolverine after he has regained all of his memories?

[e] Fully explicate how Locke’s concepts of personal identity might relate to Jamie Madrox (Multipleman). Is Derek Parfit’s conception of personal identity adequate to explain the identities of Wolverine or Madrox?
