Abstract: In this chapter, I claim that there is something deeply wrong with the standard debate between materialist empiricists — defending the bundle theory — and dualist metaphysicians — defending the ego theory — about personal identity through time. After introducing the problem of personal identity as I see it and diagnosing the influential impersonal solution of Parfit and Perry, I outline a third, innovative theoretical approach — which I call ‘analytical personalism’ — to the problem, pointing towards a satisfactory theory both of the nature and the importance of personal identity.
