Module 2 clip #7

  1. 1. Changes of Character Williams: If our character changes in thefuture, it’s unclear why our present selveswould be attracted to the projects of thisfuture self Fischer: What matters is the way that ourcharacter changes
  2. 2. Summing Up Immortality need not consist of a single pleasurable activity to beattractive. Immortality need not consist solely of pleasurable activities to beattractive. The standards for immortality should match those for a mortalexistence. An immortal life consisting only of self-exhausting pleasureswould be boring—but there’s no reason to think a life ofrepeatable pleasures, appropriately spaced (and perhapscombined with spiritual and religious experiences) could not giverise to positive categorical desires even in an immortal life.
