Second, this example is somewhat different in form than others we have discussed because although Lydgate, while he ‘raves on the heights’, does not have empathic access to his more sober self, he fully expects to regain it later. It thus seems to be gone only temporarily and not forever. 2, where we explore some of the limitations of the notion of empathic access. I am grateful to Paul Harris for reminding me of the importance of these complications.

The discussion of empathic access can thus be seen as a call to explore these other kinds of connections and their role in personal identity, and might be taken as a placeholder for the family of phenomena involved. Goldie’s second worry is about the epistemological vagaries of the notion of empathic access and the question of how we could ever know whether access is really lost or is just latent. I am happy to acknowledge the complications caused by latency, and in fact did (as Goldie points out) mention these and other epistemological difficul­ ties in my original exposition of empathic access.

I will describe the nature of the connection I see between these senses of identity and ­survival in the final section. First, however, we will need to get somewhat clearer on the figurative notion itself.

The best I can do to further articulate the notion of empathic access and to distinguish it from psychological conti­ nuity is to look at examples of the kinds of cases in which this notion seems to do real work.
