Gomes, Anil (2009) Other minds and perceived identity. Dialectica 63 (2), pp. 219-230. ISSN 0012-2017.Full text not available from this repository.
Quassim Cassam has recently defended a perceptual model of knowledge of other minds: one on which we can see and thereby know that another thinks and feels. In the course of defending this model, he addresses issues about our ability to think about other minds. I argue that his solution to this ‘conceptual problem’ does not work. A solution to the conceptual problem is necessary if we wish to explain knowledge of other minds.
