Author’s Abstract

  1. Personal pronoun revisionism (so-called by Eric Olson in his book ("Olson (Eric) - What are We? A Study of Personal Ontology", 2007)) is a response to the problem of the thinking animal1 (also called the 'too many minds' or 'too many thinkers' problem) on behalf of the neo-Lockean psychological continuity theorist.
  2. In this note, I address a worry that many have felt about this response. The worry rests, I suggest, on asking the wrong question.
