He is not wearing a seat belt, and he sustains a serious head injury which results in a total and permanent loss of memory of everything that has happened for the last 3 years. There is no chance he will ever regain his memory of these 3 years. A year after the robbery, Garrett is brought to trial.
Question: What would a memory theorist say about this case? Is the man on trial numerically identical with the man who robbed the bank? Is the man on trial morally responsible for the bank robbery and the murder? What would a soul theorist say?

Therefore, I await the writing of the essay focusing on the political critique of postmodernism/post-structuralism. My primary expectation is to do this within the framework or base of the ‘post-truth’ era.[supanova_question]
