We all think that objects can survive change, but the opposite can be argued. If a person changes their hairstyle, they are both the same person and a different person. ‘Identity and change: is anything ever the same?’ examines problems arising when things change and the identity of objects that change through time. Any change means that the old object no longer exists and is replaced by a different object. Logicians point to the difference between the object and its properties. Is this a language issue? In English, the verb ‘to be’ and its various grammatical forms can be used to express both the object and its properties.
