Question : What does the nonbranching proposal say about split-brain patients? Are there two people present in the one body? If so, is either identical with the person who occupied the body before the operation? (complete after reading 4.3)

You need to write at least 300 words discussion article.


 WRITE ANSWER : According to the non-branching theory, identical persons are those who are psychologically continuous with one another and whose causal connection has not branched. Personal identity cannot consist in psychological or physical continuity because identity is a relation that can hold only between a thing and itself. There is an argument that says that the patient has two streams of consciousness. Each hemisphere competing with the other when it comes to attending to an object. Within a normal person, competing streams of consciousness is nothing unusual, but the difference seems to be that the Split-Brain patient cannot coordinate the two competing streams into a fused state. The right brain is effectively uncontrolled by human being after the split and will be ready for takeover by another human that does not really belong to. If that happens, there will be a second personality, and conflicts. 
If another being does not take over the right brain, it will drift along for the ride, more or less manageable according to the training it gets. The whole thing about left-brain is logic and right brain is creativity is plausible. The hemispheres are important for certain tasks, but overall, the whole left-brain-right-brain thing is overgeneralized and exaggerated. Our brains are far more complex than that. One person cannot have two separate streams of consciousness, for each stream of consciousness, there must be a separate person. A split-brain patient, is more than one person. If you repaired the patient’s corpus callosum, you would not be destroying a person, in severing the patient’s corpus callosum, you would not be creating a new person. The split-brain patient, before having their corpus callosum severed and after having it repaired is more than one person.
