Author’s Abstract

  1. Roughly, animalism is the doctrine that each of us is identical with an organism. This paper explains and defends a hylemorphic1 version of animalism.
  2. I show how hylemorphic animalism handles standard objections to animalism in compelling ways. I also show what the costs of endorsing hylemorphic animalism are.
  3. The paper's contention is that despite the costs, the view is worth taking seriously.
