Title: ARTIFACT PERSONHOOD: A COMPUTATIONAL ARGUMENT FOR PERSONS BEING ONTOLOGICAL TRASH
Authors: Field, Gregory
Advisors: Johnston, Mark
Department: Philosophy
Class Year: 2013
Abstract: Is real artificial intelligence possible? If so, what would this say about our seemingly unique consciousness and our identity as persons? I argue that it is possible for all of human mentality to be described computationally, and this conclusion shows persons to be “ontological trash,” who possess no persistent self.
