Wolf I 315f
Identity / Evans: trivial criterion: e.g."to be the same as a".

Fra I 512
temporal identity / Evans: Does not just follow from description, but "The subject of the hypothesis recalls it, therefore, it is the same person".
Fra I 539
Temporal identity / Evans: "I" spans past and present, but this is based on a capacity of the subject - that leads to a new way of bust - there must be exactly one thing the act of the imagination is about.
