Animalism and the Corpse Problem

By E.T. Olson

Abstract

The apparent fact that each of us coincides with a thinking animal\ud looks like a strong argument for our being animals (animalism). Some critics,\ud however, claim that this sort of reasoning actually undermines animalism.\ud According to them, the apparent fact that each human animal coincides with\ud a thinking body that is not an animal is an equally strong argument for our\ud not being animals. I argue that the critics' case fails for reasons that do not\ud affect the case for animalism
