Seize the Moment Podcast

Mar 27, 2022

On episode 125, we welcome philosopher Jessica Gordon-Roth to discuss John Locke and ‘The Prince and the Cobbler’ thought experiment, what makes up someone’s identity and if it’s more than just a bundle of memories, if people remain the same as they age, Locke’s notion of consciousness and its distinction from the body, applying Locke’s notion of personhood to transgender people to explain why inner states may differ from outer appearances, and the difference between consciousness and a soul and why having the latter doesn’t necessarily indicate “personal persistence.”

Jessica Gordon-Roth is an Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Minnesota. Her area of specialization is in the history of early modern philosophy, with a focus on Locke and feminist history of philosophy. Jessica is also one of contributing authors prominently featured in Helen De Cruz’s new book, “Philosophy Illustrated: Forty-two Thought Experiments To Broaden Your Mind.”
