Artificial Intelligence and Personal Identity

Faith and Philosophy 26 (5):487-500 (2009)
Abstract
Persons have objective, not socially defined, identity conditions. I shall argue that robots do not, unless they have souls. Hence, robots without souls are not persons. And by parallel reasoning, neither are we persons if we do not have souls
