Author’s Abstract

  1. Professor Puccetti's article, "Puccetti (Roland) - Brain Bisection and Personal Identity" (Analysis, 29, No. 3) seems to contain a deep inconsistency.
  2. In section 4 of this paper I will try to describe this inconsistency, and in sections 2 and 3 I consider cases that might result from brain transplantation1, and which raise severe problems for Puccetti's case.
  3. In general I try to show that it is by no means clear just what the case is that Puccetti is making out.
