Write 4 paragraphs (approximately 500 words) about the following case:
Suppose that Stella, a 35-year-old woman, robs a bank and kills one of the bank guards. While driving away from the scene of the crime, Stella loses control of her car and crashes into a brick wall. She is not wearing a seat belt, and she sustains a serious head injury which results in a total and permanent loss of memory of everything that has happened for the last 3 years. There is no chance she will ever regain her memory of these 3 years. A year after the robbery, Stella is brought to trial.
Question: What would a memory theorist say about this case? Is the man on trial numerically identical with the man who robbed the bank? Is the man on trial morally responsible for the bank robbery and the murder? What would a soul theorist say?
Include the following:
1. Define and explain ONE of the Memory Theories of Personal Identity (version 1, version 2, or version 3 from Stich and Donaldson Ch. 11). Definitions should be in quotation marks, word-for-word, followed by a citation. Briefly explain this Memory Theory of personal identity.
2. Explain what a Memory Theorist of personal identity would say about this case. What would their position be, and why?
3. Explain what a Soul Theorist of personal identity would say about this case. What would their position be, and why?
4. Explain why the Soul Theorist and Memory Theorist might disagree about this case.
*Include MLA in-text citations (author page number). Include bibliography at the end.
Tips and Requirements:
* Write in formal style with paragraphs that connect with signposting. Each paragraph should have one main focus. See Professional Writing Skills: Structure
