Author’s Abstract

  1. Conjoined twinning is said to show that the number of human people – the number of US – can differ from the number of human organisms, and hence that we are not organisms.
  2. The paper shows that these arguments either assume the point at issue, rely on dubious and undefended assumptions, or add nothing to more familiar arguments for the same conclusion.
