The Ship of Theseus is a thought experiment. If an individual plank is removed and replaced from a ship until the ship has none of the original planks is it the same ship? If the planks removed from the first ship are used to make a new ship is the new ship now the same as the old? The paradox has been discussed throughout history by various philosophers.
