Philosophical Review 108 (1):112 (1999)
AbstractThe Human Animal is an extended defense of what its author calls the Biological Approach to personal identity: that you and I are human animals, and that the identity conditions under which we endure are those which apply to us as biological organisms. The somewhat surprising corollary of this view is that no sort of psychological continuity is either necessary or sufficient for a human animal—and thus for us—to persist through time. In challenging the hegemony of Psychological Approaches to personal identity, Olson offers a number of inventive and original arguments which are certain to evoke discussion and debate.
