Editorial Reviews

Book Description

When philosophers address personal identity, they usually explore numerical identity. When non-philosophers address personal identity, they often have in mind narrative identity. This book develops accounts of both senses of identity, arguing that both are normatively important, and is unique in its exploration of a wide range of issues in biothethics through the lens of identity. Defending a biological view of our numerical identity and a framework for understanding narrative identity, David DeGrazia investigates various issues for which considerations of identity prove critical.

(disclaimer: the author was a professor at my university)

While I disagree with the author's notion of human identity, he argued for it very well and did a good job outlining all of the bioethical implications that followed from his view of human identity. It has made and will continue to make good fodder for discussions for me.
