Author’s Abstract

  1. Philosophers disagree about whether there could be “zombies1”: beings physically identical to normal human people but lacking consciousness. Establishing their possibility would refute physicalism.
  2. But it is seldom noted that the popular ‘constitution view2,3’ of human people implies that our bodies actually are zombies. This would contradict several widely held views in the philosophy of mind.
