I made up perdurantism for myself one day and just recently found out what it's called. I thought I might've been the first to think of it because I'd never heard of it before.

It doesn't matter how we think we perceive reality because it is in a constant state of change.

I'm a perdurantist. My thoughts, opinions, relationships are ever shifting and fluid. The only constant with my opinions, is that there is no real constant.

um, probably and pendurantist, i think

Funny, I was thinking about this yesterday. But I didn't come to a conclusion.

The definitions are written in plain English, what don't you get?

Anyway, I'm pretty sure I'm a endurantist.

Endurantism makes more sense to me personally, but I'm still slightly confused.

I would say both. Although my thoughts are fluid and so are my relationships and many elements of my day to day experience. I still possess a body and the earth is still in existence. The sun will rise tomorrow for my existence etc.

Huh. I'd definitely say I'm more of a perduranist. Things change all the time.

You can never step in the same river twice.

Mm, this question excites me almost as much as the time I discovered I would no doubt back Parmenides in one of his arguments. I hereby select Endurantist; the WHOLE of the existence is the key here. No parts, as most subjectively oriented reasoning would have it. The frame is the subdivision of time, and it's just as much a whole as any broader whole, which can't be measured anyway. There doesn't seem to be any real meat to the perdurantist side. But that's just me... because I am crazy nuts like that.

honestly, I'm sick of seeing this question every 2 minutes!
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Saturday 9/8/07 - 12:12:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
endurantist. everything living is always changing.
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Saturday 9/8/07 - 11:45:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
I can be a bit of both at times, just depends on how cynical I'm feeling.

I've seen things from both perspectives at different points in my life.
