Animals, Identity and Persistence

Australasian Journal of Philosophy 89 (3):401 - 419 (2010)
Abstract
A number of claims are closely connected with, though logically distinct from, animalism. One is that organisms cease to exist when they die. Two others concern the relation of the brain, or the brainstem, to animal life. One of these holds that the brainstem is necessary for life?more precisely, that (say) my cat's brainstem is necessary for my cat's life to continue. The other is that it is sufficient for life?more precisely, that so long as (say) my cat's brainstem continues to function, so too does my cat. I argue against these claims
