9780415800174: Philosophy of Personal Identity and Multiple Personality (Routledge Studies in Contemporary Philosophy)

As witnessed by recent films such as Fight Club and Identity, our culture is obsessed with multiple personality?a phenomenon raising intriguing questions about personal identity. This study offers both a full-fledged philosophical theory of personal identity and a systematic account of multiple personality. Gunnarsson combines the methods of analytic philosophy with close hermeneutic and phenomenological readings of cases from different fields, focusing on psychiatric and psychological treatises, self-help books, biographies, and fiction. He develops an original account of personal identity (the authorial correlate theory) and offers a provocative interpretation of multiple personality: in brief, "multiples" are right about the metaphysics but wrong about the facts.

About the Author:

Logi Gunnarsson is Professor of Philosophy at University of Potsdam, Germany.

Review:

'A fine contribution to the discussion of the phenomenon of multiple personality and, more broadly, to issues of personal identity. The analysis is sharp; the writing, clear and succinct.'John P. Lizza, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

'Gunnarsson, with great scholarship and clarity, provides a fresh and innovative analysis of multiple personality and personal identity by providing an approach that ties a theory of personal identity with multiple personality. This book is of interest especially for academicians and students from variety of disciplines. I also found this book very useful for a course on philosophy of self or personal identity.'Kamuran Godelek, Cag University, Turkey Metapsychology Online Reviews
