Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Perdurantism: the perdurantism assumes that objects consist of temporal parts, each of which is identical with the whole object and must be described as this, i.e. as object-to-a-point-of-time. The counter position is the endurantism, that is, the conception that objects exist at all times in totality, to which they exist at all. They gain and lose properties, however, as this object which acquires or loses these properties - e.g. a certain age. See also change, movement, time, person, identity, temporal identity, four-dimensionalism, bare particulars, intrinsicness, extrinsicness, world lines.
