Self-consciousness in the split-brain subject
Thursday, December 20, 2018

Consciousness has sometimes been said to be dual, or divided, after split-brain surgery. But what about self-consciousness? In this paper, I argue that after split-brain surgery, the two hemispheres of the brain are associated with distinct self-conscious thinkers. On the other hand, there is something about the way their self-consciousness operates that makes them unlike other pairs of self-conscious thinkers and rather more like a single self-conscious human being.
