One’s sense of reality can often be dependant on one’s inner states of being, determined by the physical, cognitive, emotional and spiritual self. At the same time, so much of who one is...

Clouds and Billboards and Other Things That Change: A Review of Rebecca Lindenberg’s “The Logan Notebooks”

Reviewed by Nathan Robison The classic thought experiment, The Ship of Theseus, questions the physical fundamentals of identity.
