Externalism and Brain Transplants--Madden

Externalism and Brain Transplants--Madden

Ratings: (0)|Views: 38 |Likes:
Published by walter horn
Excellent paper by Rory Madden that navigatesbetween conflicting intuitions regarding psychological and "animalistic" criteria for personal identity. Madden relies on externalism and Kripke-Putnam considerations involving proper and kind names to understand what would happen in brain transplant or fission examples.
