'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 ReviewsVom Verlag:
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.
