  With arguments against eliminativism and epiphenomenalism, evidence from
  neuroscience and psychology, and discussions of the stream and the self.

Flanagan, O.J. 1995.  Consciousness and the natural method.  Neuropsychologia
  Consciousness is heterogeneous and should be studied by co-ordinating various
  fields.  Applies to visual consciousness, conscious memory, and dreaming, and
  argues there is no clear adaptationist account of the latter.

1.1b The Concept of Consciousness [16]

Armstrong, D.M. 1981.  What is consciousness?  In _The Nature of Mind_.
Cornell University Press.
  On minimal consciousness, perceptual consciousness, and introspective
  consciousness.  Introspective consciousness seems so special because it gives
  inner awareness of self, and memory of other mental events.

Bisiach, E. 1988.  The (haunted) brain and consciousness.  In (A. Marcel &
E. Bisiach, eds) _Consciousness in Contemporary Science_.  Oxford University
  Distinguishes C1 (phenomenal experience) from C2 (access of parts of a system
  to other parts).  C2 is can be scientifically studied, and has a graspable,
  if fragmented, causal role.  C1 is mysterious and perhaps beyond science.

Gennaro, R.J. 1992.  Consciousness, self-consciousness, and episodic memory.
Philosophical Psychology 5:333-47.
  Argues that consciousness entails having episodic memory, which entails
  self-consciousness.  So consciousness entails self-consciousness.

Moody, T.C. 1986.  Distinguishing consciousness.  Philosophy and
Phenomenological Research 47:289-95.
  Separates consciousness from the mental -- functionalist accounts work for
  the latter but not the former.  With remarks on Zen "pure consciousness".

Natsoulas, T. 1978.  Consciousness.  American Psychologist 33:906-14.
  On the role of consciousness in psychology, and distinguishing various
  notions of consciousness: mutual knowledge, internal knowledge, awareness,
  direct awareness, personal unity, wakefulness, and double consciousness.

Nelkin, N. 1987.  What is it like to be a person?  Mind and Language 21:220-41.
  Critiques three senses of consc: awareness, verbalization and phenomenology.
  Argues that none are sufficient for person-consciousness.  Quite good.

Nelkin, N. 1993.  What is consciousness?  Philosophy of Science 60:419-34.
  On three senses of consciousness: phenomenality, intentionality, and
  introspectibility.  Argues from empirical evidence (especially blindsight
  cases) that these three are all dissociable.

Rosenthal, D.M. 1990.  The independence of consciousness and sensory quality.
In (E. Villanueva, ed) _Consciousness_.  Ridgeview.

1.1c Consciousness and Higher-Order Thought (Rosenthal, etc.) [33]

Aquila, R. 1990.  Consciousness as higher-order thoughts: Two objections.
American Philosophical Quarterly 27:81-87.
  Higher-order thought theories have two unacceptable consequences: one can
  notice one's hearing a sound without noticing one's consciousness of the
  sound; and one can unconsciously perceive one's surroundings as gloomy.

Byrne, A. 1995.  Some like it HOT: consciousness and higher-order thoughts.
Philosophical Studies.

Carruthers, P. 1989.  Brute experience.  Journal of Philosophy 258-69.
  Argues for a distinction between conscious and non-conscious experiences,
  depending on whether one is conscious of the experience.  Animal experiences
  are of the second kind, and therefore are not morally significant.

Carruthers, P. 1992.  Consciousness and concepts.  Aristotelian Society
Supplement 66:41-59.
  Advocates the "reflexive thinking" account of consciousness over Kirk's
  "presence" account.  Availability for reflexive thinking is naturally
  necessary and sufficient for qualia.  Interesting paper.

Carruthers, P. 1996.  _Language, Thought, and Consciousness_.  Cambridge
University Press.

Dretske, F. 1993.  Conscious experience.  Mind 102:263-283.
  Against higher-order thought accounts: one can have a conscious experience
  without being aware that one is having it.  With remarks on thing-awareness
  vs. fact-awareness and on "inner-sense" accounts.

Dretske, F. 1995.  Are experiences conscious?  In _Naturalizing the Mind_.
MIT Press.
  We're not conscious *of* our experience in general, but conscious *with* it.
  Criticizes HOP theories (not conceptualized enough) and HOT theories (rules
  out animals; there's more in experience than thought).

Francescotti, R.M. 1995.  Higher-order thoughts and conscious experience.
Philosophical Psychology.
  Argues that a higher-order thought is insufficient for consciousness, even
  with Rosenthal's constraint.  A causal constraint is required, but the only
  strong enough such constraint doesn't work.

Gennaro, R.J. 1993.  Brute experience and the higher-order thought theory of
consciousness.  Philosophical Papers 22:51-69.
  Carruthers 1989 misanalyzes higher-order thought theory.  There's no need for
  conscious HOTs, and not too much conceptual sophistication is required, so
  animals might have HOTs and therefore conscious pains.

own mind?  In (T. Metzinger, ed) _Conscious Experience_.  Ferdinand Schoningh.
  A critique of higher-order-perception theories of consciousness.  They're
  either committed to a "representational divide" fallacy or collapse into
  higher-order-thought or first-order theories.

Jamieson, D. & Bekoff, M. 1992.  Carruthers on nonconscious experience.
Analysis 52:23-28.
  Various points against Carruthers 1989.  His examples of nonconscious
  experience are likely conscious, and the higher-order account is circular.

Lycan, W.G. 1995.  Consciousness as internal monitoring, I.  Philosophical
Perspectives 9:1-14.
  Argues for a Lockean quasi-perceptual view of consciousness as internal
  monitoring via second-order states.  Contra objections, e.g. Rey's point that
  it makes consciousness too prevalent -- consciousness isn't an on-off affair.

Mellor, D.H. 1978.  Conscious belief.  Proceedings of the Aristotelian
Society 78:87-101.
  Conscious belief (or assent) is believing that one believes.  Addresses
  various objections, from self-deception and from consciousness of assent.
  Communication needs conscious belief, not just belief.

Natsoulas, T. 1992.  Appendage theory -- pro and con.  Journal of Mind and
Behavior 13:371-96.
  On various pros and cons of HOT theories, to do with reflexivity, objects of
  HOTs, introspection, and so on.  With comparisons to "intrinsic" theories.

Natsoulas, T. 1993.  What is wrong with the appendage theory of consciousness?
Philosophical Psychology 6:137-54.
  On three theories of our direct awareness of conscious states: mental-eye
  theories, self-intimational theories, and appendage theory.  Appendage theory
  (i.e. HOT theory) is promising, but how does an HOT determine its object?

Natsoulas, T. 1993.  The importance of being conscious.  Journal of Mind and
Behavior 14:317-40.
  On the differences between first-order and second-order consciousness.
  Second-order consciousness is essential for communication and locomotion.
  With remarks on "nonconscious consciousness".

Nelkin, N. 1989.  Unconscious sensations.  Philosophical Psychology 2:129-41.
  Separates CN (phenomenological) from C1 (info-processing) and C2 (higher
  order beliefs).  CN is a subset of CS (image-representation state).  We are
  always C2 of CN states, but not of other CS states: unconscious sensations!

Nelkin, N. 1995.  The dissociation of phenomenal states from apperception.  In
(T. Metzinger, ed) _Conscious Experience_.  Ferdinand Schoningh.
  Argues that we need not be apperceptively aware of phenomenal states.
  Introspection leaves the matter open, but some empirical results (e.g.
  hue blindsight) and theoretical arguments support dissociability.

Nisbett, R. & Wilson, T. 1977.  Telling more than we can know: verbal reports
on mental processes.  Psychological Review 84:231-59.
  Experimental evidence on our confabulation about our inner processes.

Rosenthal, D.M. 1986.  Two concepts of consciousness.  Philosophical Studies
  Consciousness should be construed neither as sensation nor intentionality,
  but as the existence of higher-order thoughts.

Rosenthal, D.M. 1995.  A theory of consciousness.  In (N. Block, O. Flanagan,
and G. Guzeldere, eds.) _The Nature of Consciousness_.  MIT Press.
  A conscious mental state is a state that is the subject of a higher-order
  thought.  Consciousness is not essential to mentality, should be separated
  from sensory quality, and is not an intrinsic property of conscious states.

Rosenthal, D.M. 1990.  Why are verbally expressed thoughts conscious?
Bielefeld Report.
  Because verbally expressing and reporting are easily and immediately
  connected for 1st-order thoughts.  But not for 2nd-order thoughts.  Hmmm.

Rosenthal, D.M. 1993.  Thinking that one thinks.  In (M. Davies and G.
Humphreys, eds) _Consciousness: Psychological and Philosophical Essays_.
  Conscious states are states that are the contents of higher-order thoughts.
  Express/report distinction: we report them, and express the HOT (which may
  be unconscious).  Defense against dispositional and collapsing objections.

Rosenthal, D.M. 1993.  Explaining consciousness.  Manuscript.
  Distinguishes the sense in which we are aware of conscious states; argues for
  the separation of consciousness and sensation; and outlines how higher-order
  thoughts might explain the what-it's-like of conscious states.

Rosenthal, D.M. 1993.  Higher-order thoughts and the appendage theory of
consciousness.  Philosophical Psychology 6:155-66.
  In response to Natsoulas, HOT theory needn't answer the general question of
  how intentional states determine their objects.  With remarks on the
  other alternatives and the dangers of self-intimation.

Rosenthal, D.M. 1995.  Moore's paradox and consciousness.  Philosophical
Perspectives 9:313-33.

Seager, W.E. 1994.  Dretske on HOT theories of consciousness.  Analysis

Shoemaker, S. 1990.  First-person access.  Philosophical Perspectives
  We have a limited special authority about the contents of our mental states.
  This follows from the link between a state and beliefs about it in the
  functional definition of that kind of state.

Shoemaker, S. 1993.  Functionalism and consciousness.  In _Experimental and
Theoretical Studies of Consciousness_ (Ciba Foundation Symposium 174).  Wiley.
  Argues that introspective access is essential to many sorts of mental state,
  due to constitutive rationality requirements.  Against a perceptual model of
  introspection; introspecting and introspected states are closer than that.

eds) _Consciousness in Contemporary Science_.  Oxford University Press.

Churchland, P.S. 1983.  Consciousness: the transmutation of a concept.  Pacific
Philosophical Quarterly 64:80-95.
  Experimental evidence against consciousness/introspection/transparency.

Dennett, D.C. 1976.  Are dreams experiences?  Philosophical Review 73:151-71.
Reprinted in _Brainstorms_ (MIT Press, 1978).
  Argues that dreams might not be experienced, but rather be stored directly
  into memory (the "cassette-tape" theory of dreaming).

Studies 35, 315-18.

Nikolinakos, D. 1994.  General anesthesia, consciousness, and the skeptical
challenge.  Journal of Philosophy 2:88-104.
  Consciousness is an indispensable concept in anesthesiology, and therefore
  (contra Churchland and Wilkes) is a scientifically legitimate kind.  With
  empirical details and anesthesiological theory on levels of consciousness.
Rey, G. 1982.  A reason for doubting the existence of consciousness.  In
(R. Davidson, S. Schwartz, & D. Shapiro, eds) _Consciousness and
Self-Regulation_, Vol 3.  Plenum Press.
  One could make a machine, duplicating the usual abilities that go along with
  consciousness, but surely it wouldn't be conscious.  So what are the
  conditions for consciousness?  Maybe there are none.

Rey, G. 1986.  A question about consciousness.  In (H. Otto & J. Tuedio, eds)
_Perspectives on Mind_.  Kluwer.
  A rerun of Rey 1982: An unconscious machine could duplicate all the obvious
  criteria for consciousness, so maybe even we aren't conscious.  With remarks
  on the relation between our belief in consciousness and consciousness itself.

Rey, G. 1995.  Toward a projectivist account of conscious experience.  In (T.
Metzinger, ed) _Conscious Experience_.  Ferdinand Schoningh.
  We "project" consciousness into ourselves and others.  There are no
  explanation-transcendent phenomena for which there is non-question-begging
  evidence.  With remarks on self-attribution and Wittgenstein.

Smith, D.W. 1986.  In (H. Otto & J. Tuedio, eds) _Perspectives on Mind_.
  Commentary on Rey 1986: we are directly aware of our consciousness.  It's not
  a theoretical entity, but rather something to be explained.

Tienson, J.L. 1987.  Brains are not conscious.  Philosophical Papers 16:187-93.
  A skeptical argument: single neurons are not conscious, and adding a neuron
  won't produce consciousness, so finite brains are not conscious.

Wilkes, K.V. 1984.  Is consciousness important?  British Journal for the
Philosophy of Science 35:223-43.
  No, and it's not very coherent either.  It divides into awakeness, sensation,
  sensory experience, and propositional attitudes.  Also a history of the term.

Wilkes, K.V. 1988.  Yishi, Duh, Um and consciousness.  In (A. Marcel &
E. Bisiach, eds) _Consciousness in Contemporary Science_.  Oxford University

Wilkes, K.V. 1995.  Losing consciousness.  In (T. Metzinger, ed) _Conscious
Experience_.  Ferdinand Schoningh.
  Consciousness is not a tenable notion in either commonsense or
  scientific psychology; we should return instead to the "psuche".

1.2 Explaining Consciousness? [82]

1.2a Subjectivity and Objectivity (Nagel) [40] (see also 1.3a)

Nagel, T. 1974.  What is it like to be a bat?  Philosophical Review 4:435-50.
Reprinted in _Mortal Questions_ (Cambridge University Press, 1979).
  Physicalist explanations leave out consciousness, i.e. what it is like to be
  an organism.  Objective accounts omit points of view (could there be an
  objective phenomenology?).  Physicalism may be true, but we can't see how.

Nagel, T. 1979.  Subjective and objective.  In _Mortal Questions_.  Cambridge
University Press.
  Subjective and objective views clash e.g. on meaning of life, free will,
  personal identity, mind-body problem, ethics.  How to reconcile: reduction,
  elimination, annexation?  Maybe just let multiple viewpoints coexist.

Nagel, T. 1986.  _The View From Nowhere_.  Oxford University Press.
  Seeing philosophy as a clash between the subjective and objective views of
  various phenomena (mental states, self, knowledge, freedom, value, ethics).
  Eliminating the subjective is impossible.

Akins, K. 1993.  What is it like to be boring and myopic?  In (B. Dahlbom, ed)
_Dennett and his Critics_.  Blackwell.
  Gives a detailed account of perceptual processing in bats, and suggests that
  we can know what bat-experience is like: it's like nerd experience.  But then
  is there an unexplained residue?

Akins, K. 1993.  A bat without qualities?  In (M. Davies and G. Humphreys,
eds) _Consciousness: Psychological and Philosophical Essays_.  Blackwell.
  On what science tells us about the experience of bats, birds, and others.
  Why a movie of bat-experience isn't good enough -- because of the
  inseparability of intentionality and experience.  Science can do OK.

Biro, J.I. 1991.  Consciousness and subjectivity.  In (E. Villanueva, ed)
_Consciousness_.  Ridgeview.
  No real problems are posed by subjectivity and points of view, no matter
  how they are construed (fixed, portable, tokens, types).  It's either a
  confusion or a triviality about the logic of indexicality.

Biro, J.I. 1993.  Consciousness and objectivity.  In (M. Davies and G
Humphreys, eds) _Consciousness: Psychological and Philosophical Essays_.

Davis, L. 1982.  What is it like to be an agent?  Erkenntnis 18:195-213.
  On what is required for consciousness of agency (rather than qualia): belief,
  intention, and most importantly desire, enabling a capacity to care.  A
  robot could have all this, and it would be like something to be it.

Flanagan, O.J. 1985.  Consciousness, naturalism and Nagel.  Journal of Mind and
Behavior 6:373-90.
  Naturalism can do autophenomenology just fine.

Foss, J.E. 1989.  On the logic of what it is like to be a conscious subject.
Australasian Journal of Philosophy 67:305-320.
  A Super Neuroscientist will know how we describe and think about experience,
  so will know as much as a Super Sympathist.  One doesn't have to imagine to
  know what it's like.  With remarks on bat experience.

Foss, J.E. 1993.  Subjectivity, objectivity, and Nagel on consciousness.
Dialogue 32:725-36.
  Nagel conflates metaphysical and epistemological versions of the subjective/
  objective distinction.  Consciousness is metaphysically subjective, and
  science is epistemically objective, so there is incompatibility.

Francescotti, R.M. 1993.  Subjective experience and points of view.  Journal of
Philosophical Research 18:25-36.
  Being graspable from only one point of view does not define the class of
  facts about conscious experience.  Various ways of cashing this out fail.

Hiley, D.R. 1978.  Materialism and the inner life.  Southern Journal of
Philosophy 16:61-70.
  Nagel conflates questions about sensory qualities with those about a unique
  point of view.  The truth of physicalism is irrelevant to uniqueness.

  Various anti-Nagel points.

Lycan, W.G. 1990.  What is the "subjectivity" of the mental?  Philosophical
  The subjectivity of the mental is no more special than usual propositional
  subjectivity.  It can be handled by a self-scanner model of introspection.

Malcolm, N. 1988.  Subjectivity.  Philosophy 63:147-60.
  A critique of Nagel's idea of a "point of view" that is occupied by a
  "subject".  There aren't any peculiar facts about given viewpoints.

Maloney, J.C. 1986.  About being a bat.  Australasian Journal of Philosophy

Mellor, D.H. 1993.  Nothing like experience.  Proceedings of the Aristotelian
Society 63:1-16.
  There are no fact about what an experience is like.  Knowing what it's like
  is an ability to imagine, recognize, and recall; this explains ineffability,
  etc.  With remarks on the experience of imagining an experience.

McClamrock, R. 1992.  Irreducibility and subjectivity.  Philosophical Studies
  Phenomenological properties cannot be picked out in physical or computational
  terms; argues against Lycan's criticism of Nagel.  But all this is compatible
  with materialism.  With comments on the phenomenological tradition.

McCulloch, G. 1988.  What it is like.  Philosophical Quarterly 38:1-19.
  Criticizes absent/inverted qualia arguments for a special "what it is like",
  but argues that the possibility of "what it is like" differences relative to
  semantic states shows that something's not conveyed by functional accounts.

McMullen, C. 1985.  `Knowing what it's like' and the essential indexical.

1.2b The Explanatory Gap (Levine) [9]

Bieri, P. 1995.  Why is consciousness puzzling?  In (T. Metzinger, ed)
_Conscious Experience_.  Ferdinand Schoningh.
  Reflections on the explanatory gap between physical processes and conscious
  experience.  With remarks on different sorts of consciousness, and on why we
  need an intelligible necessary connection.

Hardin, C.L. 1987.  Qualia and materialism: Closing the explanatory gap.
Philosophy and Phenomenological Research 48:281-98.
  On the physiological bases of phenomenal states, particularly color.
  Inverted spectrum isn't really coherent, as coolness/warmth would have to
  be inverted too.  So the contingency of qualia is diminished.

Hardin, C.L. 1992.  Physiology, phenomenology, and Spinoza's true colors.  In
(A. Beckermann, H. Flohr, & J. Kim, eds) _Emergence or Reduction?: Prospects
for Nonreductive Physicalism_. De Gruyter.
  Argues in detail that psychophysics can provide a structural map to close the
  explanatory gap.  If there is an explanatory residue, perhaps panpsychism
  can help.

Harnad, S. 1994.  Why and how we are not zombies.  Journal of Consciousness
Studies 1:164-67.

Levin, J. 1991.  Analytic functionalism and the reduction of phenomenal states.
 Philosophical Studies 61:211-38.
  Contra Kripkean arguments, a good enough functional theory may help close
  the conceivability/explanatory gap between the physical and qualia.  Contra
  Nagel/Jackson, such a theory could provide us with recognitional abilities.

Levine, J. 1983.  Materialism and qualia: The explanatory gap.  Pacific
Philosophical Quarterly 64:354-61.
  How do we explain the apparent contingency of the qualia-matter reduction?
  Even if it's not metaphysically contingent, it's conceptually contingent, so
  there's a gap in any physical explanation of qualia.  Excellent.

Levine, J. 1993.  On leaving out what it's like.  In (M. Davies and G.
Humphreys, eds) _Consciousness: Psychological and Philosophical Essays_.
  Physical accounts leave out qualia epistemologically but not metaphysically.
  So physicalism holds, but there is an explanatory gap.  Discusses Kripke's
  and Jackson's arguments in detail; also explanation and content.

Price, M.C. 1996.  Should we expect to feel as if we understand consciousness?
Journal of Consciousness Studies 3.
  Argues that the explanatory gap between brain and consciousness is just the
  same as that found with causal relations everywhere; it's just that we
  usually overlook it in the latter case.

Sturgeon, S. 1994.  The epistemic basis of subjectivity.  Journal of Philosophy
  Qualia can't be explained in more basic terms, as that sort of explanation
  works by accounting for a property's canonical evidence, but the canonical
  evidence for qualia are qualia themselves.  But they still may be physical.

1.2c `Hard' and `Easy' Problems (Chalmers) [16]

Chalmers, D.J. 1995.  Facing up to the problem of consciousness.  Journal of
Consciousness Studies.  Also in (S. Hameroff, A. Kaszniak, & A. Scott, eds.)
_Toward a Science of Consciousness_.  MIT Press.
  Divides the problems of consciousness into easy and hard problems; the hard
  problem eludes reductive explanation as it isn't about explaining functions.
  Argues instead for a nonreductive theory with psychophysical laws.

Chalmers, D.J. 1995.  The puzzle of conscious experience.  Scientific
American 273(6):80-86.
  Like the JCS article, but shorter, more accessible, and with pretty pictures.

Chalmers, D.J. 1996.  Can consciousness be reductively explained?  In _The
Conscious Mind_.  Oxford University Press.
  There is no a priori entailment from the physical to phenomenal facts
  (arguments from conceivability, epistemology, analysis), so reductive
  explanation fails.  With a critique of existing empirical proposals.

Churchland, P.S. 1996.  The hornswoggle problem.  Journal of Consciousness
  Argues that the "hard problem" in effect invokes an argument from ignorance,
  and that there's no deep difference between consciousness and other domains.

Clark, T. 1995.  Function and phenomenology: Closing the explanatory gap.
Journal of Consciousness Studies 2:241-54.
  Argues contra Chalmers that experience is identical to certain functions,
  rather than emerging from them.

Crick, F. and Koch, C. 1995.  Why neuroscience may be able to explain
consciousness.  Scientific American 273(6):84-85.
  Divides the hard problem into three parts, and argues that neuroscience can
  make progress on at least one part (incommunicability); and maybe "meaning"
  holds the key to the rest.

Dennett, D.C. 1996.  Facing backwards on the problem of consciousness.
Journal of Consciousness Studies 3:4-6.
  Argues contra Chalmers 1995 that functions are all we need to explain.

Hodgson, D. 1996.  The easy problems ain't so easy.  Journal of Consciousness
Studies 3:69-75.
  Argues that consciousness plays a vital role in performing mental functions,
  so the easy problems won't be solved until the hard problem is solved.

Libet, B. 1996.  Solutions to the hard problem of consciousness.  Journal of
Consciousness Studies 3:33-35.
  Endorses the idea of consciousness as fundamental, but criticizes Chalmers'
  psychophysical laws.  Advocates a theory with a "conscious mental field".

Lowe, E.J. 1995.  There are no easy problems of consciousness.  Journal of
Consciousness Studies 2:266-71.
  Argues that the "easy problems" -- reportability, attention, etc -- all
  involve concepts and therefore experience itself, for Kantian reasons, and
  therefore are not mechanisticcally explainable.

Mills, E.O. 1996.  Giving up on the hard problem of consciousness.  Journal of
Consciousness Studies 3:26-32.
  Argues that the truly hard problem is that of giving a constitutive
  account of consciousness, and Chalmers doesn't solve that (laws aren't good
  enough); in fact it's unsolvable.

O'Hara, K. & Scutt, T. 1996.  There is no hard problem of consciousness.
Journal of Consciousness Studies 3.
  Argue that we should work on the easy problems for now, as nobody has any
  good ideas about the hard problem; maybe it will gradually fade away.

Robinson, W.S. 1996.  The hardness of the hard problem.  Journal of
Consciousness Studies 3:14-25.

Shear, J. 1996.  The hard problem: Closing the empirical gap.  Journal of
Consciousness Studies 3:54-68.
  On the epistemology of the hard problem.  Argues that a scientific study of
  phenomenology is possible, drawing on work in developmental psychology and
  Eastern thought.  "Pure consciousness" may be relevant to a resolution.

Varela, F. 1995.  Neurophenomenology: A methodological remedy for the hard
problem.  Journal of Consciousness Studies 3.
  Advocates a careful phenomenological study of consciousness in its own right,
  systematucally linked with a neurophysiological investigation.

Velmans, M. 1995.  The relation of consciousness to the material world.
Journal of Consciousness Studies 2:255-65.
  Agrees with Chalmers on nonreductionism, but disagrees on "awareness",
  organizational invariance, and thermostats.  Advocates a kind of dual-aspect
  theory, where the physical world is present within consciousness,

1.2d Cognitive Closure (McGinn) [10]

Kirk, R. 1991.  Why shouldn't we be able to solve the mind-body problem?
Analysis 51:17-23.
  McGinn asks too much of a solution to the M-B problem.  We might understand
  consciousness without understanding specific experiences; we could get at it
  by studying brain and consciousness not separately but simultaneously.

Kukla, A. 1995.  Mystery, mind, and materialism.  Philosophical Psychology

McGinn, C. 1989.  Can we solve the mind-body problem?  Mind 98:349-66.
Reprinted in _The Problem of Consciousness_ (Blackwell, 1991).
  Argues that the mind-body problem might be solvable in principle, but beyond
  human capacities.  Neither perception of the brain nor introspection of
  consciousness can uncover the property by which consciousness arises.

McGinn, C. 1991.  _The Problem of Consciousness: Essays Toward a Resolution_.
  A collection of articles on the problem of consciousness, advocating a view
  on which the phenomenon is natural but permanently mysterious to us.

McGinn, C. 1991.  Consciousness and the natural order.  In _The Problem of
Consciousness_.  Blackwell.
  Argues that a naturalistic account of the intentionality of conscious states
  requires an account of their embodiment; and that embodiment may depend on
  the hidden structure of conscious states, not accessible to introspection.

McGinn, C. 1991.  The hidden structure of consciousness.  In _The Problem of
Consciousness_.  Blackwell.
  Suggests that consciousness may have a hidden structure, analogous to the
  deep structure of language, that relates its surface properties to physical
  properties.  We may not be able to understand this hidden structure, however.

1.2e Miscellaneous [7]

Hardcastle, V.G. 1993.  The naturalists versus the skeptics: The debate over a
scientific understanding of consciousness.  Journal of Mind and Behavior
  Argues that consciousness can be handled within a scientific framework.  We

  skeptical objections using analogies from elsewhere in science.

Hardcastle, V.G. 1996.  The why of consciousness: A non-issue for materialists.

armadillos?  In (M. Davies and G. Humphreys, eds) _Consciousness:
Psychological and Philosophical Essays_. Blackwell.
  Qualia pose no insurmountable problems for materialism: knowledge argument
  can be answered, explanatory gap can be closed, and absent qualia arguments
  beg the question.  With speculations on their functional role.

van Gulick, R. 1995.  What would count as explaining consciousness?  In (T.
Metzinger, ed) _Conscious Experience_.  Ferdinand Schoningh.
  Distinguishes six explananda, four explanatory restrictions, and four
  sorts of relations between them, making 96 possible problems.  With a
  discussion of whether and how the central problems might be answered.

1.3 Consciousness and Ontology [107]

1.3a The Knowledge Argument (Jackson) [36] (see also 1.2a)

Jackson, F. 1982.  Epiphenomenal qualia.  Philosophical Quarterly 32:127-136.
Reprinted in (W. Lycan, ed) _Mind and Cognition_ (Blackwell, 1990).
  Knowing a completed neuroscience does not imply knowing about qualia.  Mary,
  the colorblind neuroscientist, gains color vision and learns about red.  So
  physicalism is false, as there are facts over and above the physical facts.

Jackson, F. 1986.  What Mary didn't know.  Journal of Philosophy 83:291-5.
  Reply to Churchland 1985: Mary *learns*, Churchland misstates the argument.

Alter, T. 1995.  Mary's new perspective.  Australasian Journal of Philosophy
  Contra Pereboom 1994: The way a color sensation appears is a fact about it.

Bachrach, J.E. 1990.  Qualia and theory reduction: A criticism of Paul
Churchland.  Iyyun 281-94.
  Argues that Churchland's neuroscientific descriptions must leave at least
  some qualia behind: they might account for what we know (e.g. brain states)
  in qualia-knowledge, but can't handle distinctions in how we know.

Bigelow, J. & Pargetter, R. 1990.  Acquaintance with qualia.  Theoria.
  Mary gains knowledge of old facts, in a new way: she gains a new mode of
  acquaintance with those facts.  Analogies with indexical knowledge: her new
  knowledge eliminates no possible worlds.

Churchland, P.M. 1985.  Reduction, qualia and the direct introspection of brain
states.  Journal of Philosophy 82:8-28.  Reprinted in _A Neurocomputational
Perspective_ (MIT Press, 1989).
  Qualia can undergo a normal reduction to the neurophysiological.  Jackson
  commits an intensional fallacy; in any case, perhaps Mary can understand red.
  When we apprehend qualia, we are directly introspecting our brain state.

Churchland, P.M. 1989.  Knowing qualia: A reply to Jackson.  In _A
Neurocomputational Perspective_.  MIT Press.
  Rejoinder to Jackson 1986.  The key lies in knowing-how vs. knowing-that.

Conee, E. 1985.  Physicalism and phenomenal properties.  Philosophical
Quarterly 35:296-302.
  Contra Lewis, Nemirow, and Horgan on the knowledge argument.  But qualia may
  still be physical (though outside vocab of science) due to their causal role.

Conee, E. 1994.  Phenomenal knowledge.  Australasian Journal of Philosophy.
  Mary knew all the facts about qualia beforehand, she just wasn't acquainted
  with them.  Knowledge by acquaintance isn't factual knowledge.

Cummins, R. 1984.  The mind of the matter: Comments on Paul Churchland.
Philosophy of Science Association 1984, 2:791-8.
  Speculation on how consciousness might be left out by a physical account.

Dennett, D.C. 1991.  "Epiphenomenal" qualia?  In _Consciousness Explained_, pp.
398-406.  Little-Brown.
  Argues that most people don't really imagine Mary's situation.  In fact,
  Mary would be able to identify blue objects from the way they make her react.

Furash, G. 1989.  Frank Jackson's knowledge argument against materialism.
Dialogue 32:1-6.
  Defends Jackson's argument against criticisms by Nemirow, Smith & Jones,
  Warner, Horgan, & Conee.  The argument forces physicalism into a quandary:
  either deny qualia, or make the confused claim that qualia are physical.

Harman, G. 1993.  Can science understand the mind?  In (G. Harman, ed)
_Conceptions of the Human Mind: Essays on Honor of George A. Miller_.  Lawrence
  On Dilthey's "Verstehen", or "understanding from within".  Mostly about
  meaning, but with application to the knowledge Mary gains.

Horgan, T. 1984.  Jackson on physical information and qualia.  Philosophical
Quarterly 34:147-83.
  Mary didn't know all the physical facts: she knew all the explicitly physical
  information, but not all the ontologically physical information.

Lahav, R. 1994.  A new challenge for the physicalist: Phenomenal
indistinguishabilty.  Philosophia 24:77-103.
  A new version of the knowledge argument: given all the physical facts, one
  can't know when two experiences are indistinguishable.  This avoids
  various objections to the standard version.

Levin, J. 1986.  Could love be like a heatwave?: Physicalism and the subjective
character of experience.  Philosophical Studies 49:245-61.  Reprinted in (W.
Lycan, ed) _Mind and Cognition_ (Blackwell, 1990).
  Contra Nagel/Jackson:  Understand qualia through relational properties, and
  separate the mental concept from the recognitional capacity.

Lewis, D. 1990.  What experience teaches.  In (W. Lycan, ed) _Mind and
Cognition_.  Blackwell.
  Against the hypothesis that phenomenology carries information.  If it does,
  then qualia are epiphenomenal.  Better to analyze the "new information" as
  acquiring an ability instead.  In-depth and entertaining.

Loar, B. 1990.  Phenomenal states.  Philosophical Perspectives 4:81-108.
  Phenomenal and functional concepts are distinct, but the relevant properties
  may be identical.  We directly refer to phenomenal properties by recognition.
  Remarks on other minds, transparency, incorrigibility & more.  A meaty paper.

Lycan, W.G. 1995.  A limited defense of phenomenal information.  In (T.
Metzinger, ed.) _Conscious Experience_.  Ferdinand Schoningh.
  Gives nine arguments against the Lewis/Nemirow ability analysis, and proposes
  instead that the same fact is learned a new way, like water and H2O facts.
  This sort of phenomenal information is no danger to materialism.

McConnell, J. 1995.  In defense of the knowledge argument.  Philosophical
Topics 22:157-187.
  Defends against objections from Dennett, Churchland, etc.  Horgan's objection
  (same fact different ways) has a certain force, but the argument can be
  reformulated to avoid them and imply property dualism.  With remarks on Loar.

Nemirow, L. 1995.  Understanding rules.  Journal of Philosophy 92:28-43.

Newton, N. 1986.  Churchland on direct introspection of brain states.  Analysis
  Contra Churchland 1985: we couldn't introspect sensations as brain states, 
  although we could interpret them as such.

Nida-Rumelin, M. 1995.  What Mary couldn't know: Belief about phenomenal
states.  In (T. Metzinger, ed) _Conscious Experience_.  Ferdinand Schoningh.
  Reconstructing the Mary case as a Marianna case, and introducing a
  distinction between phenomenal and nonphenomenal beliefs, to support the
  knowledge argument.  A very nice and sophisticated paper.

Papineau, D. 1993.  Physicalism, consciousness, and the antipathetic fallacy.
Australasian Journal of Philosophy 71:169-83.
  Mary goes from a third-person concept of experience to a first-person
  concept, but they co-refer; we can refer to an experience without having the
  experience.  Physical and phenomenal properties are brutely identical.

Papineau, D. 1995.  The antipathetic fallacy and the boundaries of
consciousness.  In (T. Metzinger, ed) _Conscious Experience_.  Ferdinand

Pereboom, D. 1994.  Bats, brain scientists, and the limits of introspection.
Philosophy and Phenomenological Research 54:315-29.
  Mary learns an old fact under a new mode of presentation, and doesn't even
  learn a new fact about a mode of presentation.  Her access to internal states
  is always mediated by representation, so we can always ascend to a new mode.

Raymont, P. 1995.  Tye's criticism of the knowledge argument.  Dialogue

Robinson, D. 1993.  Epiphenomenalism, laws, and properties.  Philosophical
Studies 69:1-34.
  A thorough discussion of Lewis 1990.  Phenomenal information implies
  epiphenomenalism, even at the intra-psychic level.  Remarks on ineffability,
  and on whether properties should be individuated by nomic role or by essence.

Robinson, H. 1993.  Dennett on the knowledge argument.  Analysis 53:174-7.
  Contra Dennett, Mary can't tell an object's color unless she already knows
  about experience.  The knowledge argument bears on thought, not just qualia.

Shoemaker, S. 1984.  Churchland on reduction, qualia, and introspection.
Philosophy of Science Association 1984, 2:799-809.
  Introspection reveals functional properties, not physical, so qualia should
  be reduced to the functional, not to the physical.

Stemmer, N. 1989.  Physicalism and the argument from knowledge.  Australasian
Journal of Philosophy 67:84-91.
  Physicalism explains all the relevant evidence, hence all facts, and needn't
  admit mental entities; belief in mental entities is based on physical facts.

Thompson, E. 1992.  Novel colours.  Philosophical Studies 68:321-49.
  Interesting remarks on what it would be for someone to see colors that we
  cannot, combining philosophical considerations with empirical findings about
  color space.  Argues that science could tell us what such colors are like.

Warner, R. 1986.  A challenge to physicalism.  Australasian Journal of
Philosophy 64:249-65.
  A Jackson-like argument that physical knowledge can't give you the knowledge
  of what pain feels like.  With detailed consideration of objections and
  replies.  Argues from limited incorrigibility to factualism about pains.

Watkins, M. 1989.  The knowledge argument against the knowledge argument.

  Argues from the lack of logical supervenience to the falsity of physicalism.
  A two-dimensional analysis shows that objections from a posteriori necessity
  fail.  Argues for a naturalistic variety of property dualism.

  Describing a situation where we would be justified in believing in zombies.
  Argues that zombies are logically possible, which seems incompatible with
  most or all varieties of materialism.

Kirk, R. 1974.  Zombies vs materialists.  Aristotelian Society Supplement
  Materialism requires that physical states logically entail all non-relational
  states; but zombies are logically possible, so materialism fails.  With a
  description of a zombie, and replies to a verificationist.  All very true.

Kirk, R. 1977.  Reply to Don Locke on zombies and materialism.  Mind 86:262-4.
  Reply to Locke 1976: materialism needs zombies to be logically impossible.

Perkins, M. 1970.  Matter, sensation, and understanding.  American
Philosophical Quarterly 8:1-12.
  On the possibility of an Insentient Perceiver, who perceives the world
  without sensation.  Sensation is inessential to perception and understanding,
  except understanding in the "whatlike" manner.

Perkins, M. 1971.  Sentience.  Journal of Philosophy 68:329-37.
  Argues for the conceivability of insentient perception of colors (in
  "Insent", a kind of blindsighter or zombie), in order to argue for a
  realistic account of colors.

Tye, M. 1983.  On the possibility of disembodied existence.  Australasian
Journal of Philosophy 61:275-282.
  There's no reason to believe that disembodied existence is possible: lack of
  logical contradiction doesn't imply possibility, conceivability is too weak a
  criterion, and it's not obvious that the situation is imaginable.

  facts.  A nice argument.

Kirk, R. 1982.  Physicalism, identity, and strict implication.  Ratio

  epiphenomenalism.  Speculation on what the function of consciousness might
  be, and how it might be realized: e.g. selecting information.

Block, N. 1995.  On a confusion about the function of consciousness.
Behaviora and Brain Sciences 18:227-47.
  Separates phenomenal consciousness from access consciousness, and argues that
  cases like blindsight only suggest a function for access consciousness, not
  phenomenal consciousness.  The latter remains a mystery.  With commentaries.

  Argues for the possibility of zombies (contra Moody), then notes that any
  function could be performed by an unconscious zombie, it seems, so there's
  no function of consciousness in sight.

  Function always underdetermines intrinsic nature, so absent/inverted qualia
  cases aren't incompatible with consciousness having a function.

Mott, P. 1982.  On the function of consciousness.  Mind 91:423-9.
  Consciousness doesn't have a function, as any function it might have is a
  function of brain processes.

Tye, M. 1996.  The function of consciousness.  Nous 30:287-305.
  Argues that the function of consciousness is not obvious, but that once one
  accepts a representational view of consciousness, it becomes obvious.

van Gulick, R. 1989.  What difference does consciousness make?  Philosophical
Topics 17:211-30.
  Trying to counter absent qualia arguments by finding a role for consciousness
  e.g. in metacognition, or as as a way to achieve semantic transparency.  But
  consciousness doesn't seem necessary for these, so it's still a mystery.

Velmans, M. 1992.  Is human information-processing conscious?  Behavioral and
Brain Sciences 14:651-69.
  Uses experimental evidence to argue that consciousness is functionally
  inessential: the tasks associated with consciousness can be performed without
  consciousness.  Only focal-attentive processing is required.

Davies, M. 1992.  Perceptual content and local supervenience.  Proceedings of
the Aristotelian Society 66:21-45.
  Argues that perceptual content does not supervene on internal state, even
  though it is non-conceptual.  Constructs an Twin scenario to that effect.
  With remarks on the relation between perceptual content and phenomenology.

Davies, M. 1993.  Aims and claims of externalist arguments.  In (E. Villanueva,
ed) _Naturalism and Normativity_.  Ridgeview.
  Distinguishes modal and constitutive externalism, characterizes perceptual
  content and its relation to sensational content, and argues for externalism
  about perceptual content by examples.

de Vries, W.A. 1996.  Experience and the swamp creature.  Philosophical
Studies 82:55-80.
  Argues that a swampthing isn't intelligent or intentional, with different
  physiological processes and no sensations, as these are functional kinds.

where are qualia?  In (E. Villanueva, ed) _Perception_.  Ridgeview.
  We only have access to qualia through our concepts, which are external; so
  internal qualia would be inaccessible.  So if qualia are knowable, they're
  external; and if not, why posit them?  With comments by Kim, Horwich, Biro.

Australasian Journal of Philosophy.

Clark, A. 1985.  Qualia and the psychophysical explanation of color perception.
Synthese 65:377-405.
  One can give an information-theoretic explanation of color perception, which
  leaves nothing out.  Rebuts various qualia objections, e.g. from the
  possibility of inversion.  Qualia are codes for external properties.

Clark, A. 1989.  The particulate instantiation of homogeneous pink.  Synthese
  Explains homogeneity in terms of nontransitive matching among pixelized parts
  of vision.  Experience of continuity, not continuous experience.  Experiences
  may have subphenomenal parts (e.g. invisible pixels).

Clark, A. 1992.  _Sensory Qualities_.  Clarendon.
  Argues that psychology is in the business of explaining sensory qualities,

  detailed argument and many interesting examples.

Fox, I. 1989.  On the nature and cognitive function of phenomenal content --
Part one.  Philosophical Topics 17:81-103.

  objects.  Experience consists in represented (inexistent) objects of thought.

Gilbert, P. 1992.  Immediate experience.  Proceedings of the Aristotelian

  Against an account of phenomenal content as given by inner discrimination.
  Argues that the character of experience consists in its reason-giving role. 

Kitcher, P.S. 1979.  Phenomenal qualities.  American Philosophical Quarterly
  Qualia problems stem from assuming direct awareness of perceptual states.
  Instead, we should acknowledge only an ability to detect and label these

  physical.  A very thorough paper.

Lewis, D. 1995.  Should a materialist believe in qualia?  Australasian Journal
of Philosophy 73:140-44.
  Materialists can believe in qualia, qua occupier of the folk psychological

  allows us to know exactly what they are.

Lycan, W.G. 1988.  Phenomenal objects: A backhanded defense.  Philosophical
Perspectives 3:513-26.
  Argues that qualia, if viewed as simple properties of phenomenal individuals,
  are problematic for materialism.  Considers the case for phenomenal
  individuals, and argues that they are intentional inexistents.

Marras, A. 1993.  Materialism, functionalism, and supervenient qualia.
Dialogue 32:475-92.

_Conscious Experience_.  Ferdinand Schoningh.
  Argues that our inability to reidentify qualia is a problem for materialism.

  would be reidentified, so maybe a plain presentation?  Very interesting.

  Absent/inverted qualia aren't really imaginable.  The Knowledge Argument
  fails, as discovering new experiences doesn't imply learning new facts,
  but only coming to know old facts in a new way.

Dennett, D.C. 1978.  Why you can't make a computer that feels pain.  Synthese
38.  Reprinted in _Brainstorms* (MIT Press, 1978).
  The concept of pain is incoherent, as it's asked to do too many things at
  once.  With a discussion of drugs, flowcharts, reportability, etc.

Dennett, D.C. 1981.  Wondering where the yellow went.  Monist 64:102-8.
  A response to Sellars.  All there is to seeing occurrent yellow is the

Dennett, D.C. 1988.  Quining qualia.  In (A. Marcel & E. Bisiach, eds)
_Consciousness in Contemporary Science_.  Oxford University Press.
  Argues against the existence of ineffable, intrinsic, private, directly
  accessible properties.  With lots of meaty-thought experiments, and arguments
  that there is no fact of the matter about inversion cases.

_Consciousness_.  Ridgeview.

Everett, A. 1996.  Qualia and vagueness.  Synthese 106:205-226.
  There are no qualia: qualia would have to be vague (for Sorites reasons), but
  there can be no vague properties in nature.  The usual Sorites defenses don't
  work here, as there's no appearance/reality distinction for qualia.

Jacoby, H. 1985.  Eliminativism, meaning, and qualitative states.
Philosophical Studies 47:257-70.
  Arguing against eliminativism for qualia.  Even if nothing satisfies all the
  common-sense properties of qualia, reference of qualia terms is still fixed
  under a Putnam-style theory of meaning.  Argues for scientific functionalism.

Levin, M. 1981.  Phenomenal properties.  Philosophy and Phenomenological
Research 42:42-58.
  There are no irreducible phenomenal properties.  Materialism can handle our
  direct awareness of inner states by the right sort of causal connection.
  Gives a materialism account of discrimination and learning mental concepts.

Levine, J. 1994.  Out of the closet: A qualophile confronts qualophobia.
Philosophical Topics 22:107-126.

Seager, W.E. 1993.  The elimination of experience.  Philosophy and
Phenomenological Research 53:345-65.
  Dennett's 1988 argument against ineffability, etc., doesn't nearly make the
  case against qualia, and largely relies on verificationist assumptions.

1.6d The Inverted Spectrum [25]

Block, N. 1990.  Inverted earth.  Philosophical Perspectives 4:53-79.
  Uses Inverted Earth case, colors and lenses inverted, to argue vs Harman
  that qualitative states aren't intentional states.  Also, less convincingly,
  to argue that qualitative states aren't functional states.

Churchland, P.M. & Churchland, P.S. 1981.  Functionalism, qualia and
intentionality.  Philosophical Topics 12:121-32.  Reprinted in _A
Neurocomputational Perspective_ (MIT Press, 1989).
  Functional role counts more than qualitative content in determining what
  e.g. "redness" is.

Clark, A. 1985.  Spectrum inversion and the color solid.  Southern Journal of
Philosophy 23:431-43.
  Argues that there could be inverted spectra even without a symmetrical color
  space.  Qualia must be distinguished from their place in color space.

Cole, D.J. 1990.  Functionalism and inverted spectra.  Synthese 82:207-22.
  Acquired spectrum inversions do not refute functionalism, if qualia revert
  after behavioral adaptation (as they do with inverting lenses).

Dennett, D.C. 1994.  Instead of qualia.  In (A. Revonsuo & M. Kamppinen, eds)
_Consciousness in Philosophy and Cognitive Neuroscience_.  Lawrence Erlbaum.
  Describes some "inverted spectrum" scenario in computer registers, and argues
  that in the absence of a "central clearing house", the inversion of qualia
  is indeterminate.  There's no reason to believe in non-dispositional qualia.

Gert, B. 1965.  Imagination and verifiability.  Philosophical Studies 16:44-47.
  Inverted spectra with constant behavior is a meaningful hypothesis even under
  verificationism.  Switching nerve endings, tinting contact lenses, etc.

Hardin, C.L. 1987.  Qualia and materialism: Closing the explanatory gap.
Philosophy and Phenomenological Research 48:281-98.
  On the physiological bases of phenomenal states, particularly color.
  Inverted spectrum isn't really coherent, as coolness/warmth would have to
  be inverted too.  So the contingency of qualia is diminished.

Hardin, C.L. 1988.  _Color for Philosophers_.  Hackett.
  Distinguishes various functionally distinct inverted spectrum cases.

Hardin, C.L. 1991.  Reply to Levine.  Philosophical Psychology 4:41-50.
  Reply to Levine 1991.  "Green residue" and "red residue" may be identical.
  Physiology might put more constraints on qualia, eventually ruling out all
  other possibilities.  But there may still be absent/alien qualia problems.

Harrison, B. 1967.  On describing colors.  Inquiry 10:38-52.

Harrison, B. 1973.  _Form and Content_.  Blackwell.
  The inverted spectrum is impossible, due to asymmetries in color space.

Harvey, J. 198x.  Systematic transposition of colours.  Australasian Journal of
Philosophy 211-19.
  The inverted spectrum can be detected, if a single person experiences both.

Johnsen, B.C. 1986.  The inverted spectrum.  Australasian Journal of Philosophy
  Against Shoemaker: physical realizations do not give empirical conditions
  for qualia inversion.  Nice.

Johnsen, B.C. 1993.  The intelligibility of spectrum inversion.  Canadian
Journal of Philosophy 23:631-6.

Kirk, R. 1982.  Goodbye to transposed qualia.  Proceedings of the Aristotelian
Society 82:33-44.
  The possibility of an inverted spectrum w.r.t. dispositions implies the
  falsity of physicalism.  But this rests on an implausible "slide-viewer"
  model of seeing, and is incoherent otherwise.

Levine, J. 1988.  Absent and inverted qualia revisited.  Mind and Language
  Inverted qualia, with respect to a functional account, are no more plausible
  than absent qualia (by analysis of thought experiments).  Both lead to
  first-person skepticism about qualia.

Levine, J. 1991.  Cool red.  Philosophical Psychology 4:27-40.
  Contra Hardin 1988: there's a "green residue" after coolness is subtracted,
  so inverted spectrum could still be possible.  In any case, the impossibility
  of IS doesn't affect the explanatory gap for qualia, which is epistemic.

Lycan, W.G. 1973.  Inverted spectrum.  Ratio 15:315-9.
  Inverted spectrum holding behavior constant is at least a coherent idea.
  Hook up brain in different ways, etc.

Lycan, W.G. 1993.  Functionalism and recent spectrum inversions.  Manuscript.
  Argues that qualia are intentional properties, and that inverted spectra,
  though conceivable, are metaphysically impossible, due to considerations
  about society and normality.  Argues against Block's "inverted earth".

Nida-Rumelin, M. 1996.  Pseudonormal vision: An actual case of qualia
inversion?  Philosophical Studies 82:145-57.
  A fascinating note on the possibility of people with doubled colorblindness
  genes, thus inverting color processing; such people may actually exist.

Rey, G. 1992.  Sensational sentences reversed.  Philosophical Studies
  Argues for a computational/sentential theory under which qualia are fixed by
  functional organization.  Argues against Block's 1990 inversion: qualia might
  slowly change back as associations fade.  Memory isn't 100% reliable.

Shoemaker, S. 1975.  Phenomenal similarity.  Critica 7:3-37.  Reprinted in
_Identity, Cause, and Mind_ (Cambridge University Press, 1984).
  Maybe IS is ongoing, with memory changes.  What is the logic of "appears"?

Shoemaker, S. 1982.  The inverted spectrum.  Journal of Philosophy 79:357-381.
Reprinted in _Identity, Cause, and Mind_ (Cambridge University Press, 1984).
  All about the coherence and otherwise thereof.  Uses switch in state for IS
  IS wrt behavior.  Also claims that IS wrt function is possible as qualia are
  fixed by realizing state, not functional state.  Bad assumption.

Taylor, D. 1966.  The incommunicability of content.  Mind 75:527-41.
  Inverted spectra thought-experiments show that experiential content is
  incommunicable.  Accounts for the fact that attempts to describe such
  cases lead to contradiction (I'm seeing green & not seeing green).

Tye, M. 1993.  Qualia, content, and the inverted spectrum.  Nous.
  Argues that qualia are intentional properties, along the lines of "looks
  F to P".  Handles inverted earth and related cases by taking the narrow
  intentional content.  With remarks on the semantics of color terms.

1.7 Functionalism and Qualia [44]

1.7a Introspection and Absent Qualia (Shoemaker) [10]

Shoemaker, S. 1975.  Functionalism and qualia.  Philosophical Studies
27:291-315.  Reprinted in _Identity, Cause, and Mind_ (Cambridge University
Press, 1984).
  Absent qualia possible => qualia make no causal difference => no knowledge
  of qualia, therefore absent qualia are impossible.  If qualia are
  introspectively accessible, they must be functional.  An important argument.

Shoemaker, S. 1981.  Absent qualia are impossible -- A reply to Block.
Philosophical Review 90:581-99.  Reprinted in _Identity, Cause, and Mind_
(Cambridge University Press, 1984).
  Reply to Block 1980.  Distinguishes two AQ theses, and argues that if AQ are
  possible, then the problem for functionalism isn't due solely to qualia.

Averill, E.W. 1990.  Functionalism, the absent qualia objection, and
eliminativism.  Southern Journal of Philosophy 28:449-67.
  Defending Shoemaker's argument against Conee: immediate awareness and
  qualitative beliefs are the same.  But maybe people *can't* tell whether
  they're having genuine or ersatz pain.  Eliminativism is the best option.

Block, N. 1980.  Are absent qualia impossible?  Philosophical Review 89:257-74.
  Reply to Shoemaker 1975.  The possibility of absent qualia is compatible with
  a functional role for qualia, as qualia can make a causal difference that is
  independent of a given functional account.

Conee, E. 1985.  The possibility of absent qualia.  Philosophical Review
  Contra Shoemaker: qualia cause qualitative beliefs, which are affected by the
  absence of qualia, so we know about qualia even if AQ are possible.

Davis, L. 1982.  Functionalism and absent qualia.  Philosophical Studies
  Elucidating Shoemaker's argument: if absent qualia are possible, then the
  difference between real and ersatz pain makes no difference to belief, so
  qualia aren't introspectively accessible.  A nice analysis.

Doore, G. 1981.  Functionalism and absent qualia.  Australasian Journal of
Philosophy 59:387-402.
  Qualia and qualitative beliefs are the same, so Shoemaker's argument fails.
  A numbness/pain inversion argument shows that pain isn't a functional state;
  it yields an introspectible difference without a functional difference.

Francescotti, R.M. 1994.  Qualitative beliefs, wide content, and wide behavior.
Nous 28:396-404.
  Qualitative beliefs can supervene on behavioral dispositions even if absent/
  /inverted qualia are possible.  We just individuate belief contents and
  behavior widely, with wide content fixed to the qualia. 

Hill, C.S. 1991.  Introspection and the skeptic.  In _Sensations: A Defense of
Type Materialism_.  Cambridge University Press.
  Argues that the possibility of absent qualia is compatible with introspective
  knowledge.  The fact that we have evidence of qualia isn't altered by the
  fact that we'd still think we had that evidence if we didn't have qualia.

White, N. 1985.  Professor Shoemaker and the so-called `qualia' of experience.
Philosophical Studies 47:369-383.
  Shoemaker's account leaves out experienced relations, such as experienced
  similarity.  Experienced similarity is not the same as similarity between
  experiences.  Being experienced is not an experienced feature.

1.7b Absent Qualia (Block, etc) [13]

Block, N. & Fodor, J.A. 1972.  What psychological states are not.
Philosophical Review 81:159-81.
  As a criticism of functionalism. raises the possibility that realizations of
  any given functional account of mental states may lack qualia.

Block, N. 1980.  Troubles with functionalism.  In (N. Block, ed) _Readings in
the Philosophy of Psychology_, Vol 1.  Harvard University Press.
  All kinds of absent qualia cases: homunculi-headed robots, the population of
  China, and so on.  There is a prima facie doubt that such cases lack qualia,
  so there is a prima facie case against functionalism.

Bogen, J. 1981.  Agony in the schools.  Canadian Journal of Philosophy 11:1-21.
  It's OK for bizarre realizations to lack pain, as functionalism requires
  teleology as well as organization.  With remarks on the relation between
  pain and "introspectible noxiousness".

Carleton, L. 1983.  The population of China as one mind.  Philosophy Research
Archives 9:665-74.
  Taking the personal stance, we should regard the Chinese nation as having
  qualia.  A lack of qualia would make a functional difference.

Churchland, P.M. & Churchland, P.S. 1981.  Functionalism, qualia and
intentionality.  Philosophical Topics 12:121-32.  Reprinted in _A
Neurocomputational Perspective_ (MIT Press, 1989).
  Absent qualia are impossible.  Also, qualia aren't essential to mental
  state, functional role is.

Cuda, T. 1985.  Against neural chauvinism.  Philosophical Studies 48:111-27.
  Replace neurons one by one with homunculi: what happens?  Beliefs don't
  change, does consciousness fade?  Very nice.

Elugardo, R. 1983.  Functionalism, homunculi-heads and absent qualia.  Dialogue
  If absent qualia are possible, then either qualia are inexplicable or species
  chauvinism is true.  Homunculi-heads could make similar arguments about us.

Elugardo, R. 1983.  Functionalism and the absent qualia argument.  Canadian
Journal of Philosophy 13:161-80.

Jacoby, H. 1990.  Empirical functionalism and conceivability arguments.
Philosophical Psychology 2:271-82.
  Conceivability arguments are only a problem for empirical functionalism
  insofar as they are a problem for materialism in general.  Very true.

Levin, J. 1985.  Functionalism and the argument from conceivability.  Canadian
Journal of Philosophy Supplement 11:85-104.
  Argues that metaphysical conclusions can be drawn from conceivability
  arguments, but that absent qualia cases have not been clearly and distinctly
  conceived.  The functionalist is better off than the identity theorist here.

Levine, J. 1988.  Absent and inverted qualia revisited.  Mind and Language
  IQ are no more plausible than AQ (by analysis of thought experiments and
  skepticism).  So there's no reason to choose physicalist-functionalism over
  pure functionalism, as Shoemaker does.  Nice.

Sayan, E. 1988.  A closer look at the Chinese Nation argument.  Philosophy
Research Archives 13:129-36.
  The Chinese Nation would require less people than Churchland & Churchland
  1981 suggest, as we'd only need to handle a subset of all possible inputs.

Tye, M. 1993.  Blindsight, the absent qualia hypothesis, and the mystery of
consciousness.  In (C. Hookway, ed) _Philosophy and the Cognitive Sciences_.
Cambridge University Press.
  Gives a thorough neurophysiological analysis of blindsight and related
  pathologies, and argues that these cannot be used to support the possibility
  of absent qualia.  With remarks on the mystery of consciousness.

1.9 Essentialism and the Identity Theory (Kripke) [33]

Kripke, S.A. 1971.  Identity and necessity.  In (M. Munitz, ed) _Identity and
  An identity between mental and physical states can't be contingent, as it
  relates rigid designators.  But nevertheless the co-occurrence of certain
  mental and physical states is contingent, so the identity theory is false.

Kripke, S.A. 1972.  _Naming and Necessity_.  Harvard University Press.
  Both "pain" and "C-fibres firing" are rigid designators, so if they are
  identical, this must be necessary.  But their co-occurrence is contingent,
  and this can't be explained away epistemically, so the identity theory fails.

Barnette, R. 1977.  Kripke's pains.  Southern Journal of Philosophy 15.
  Argues that pain and the associated epistemic situation are inequivalent.
  Beliefs about pain are simply produced by mechanisms, and could come about
  without any sensation.

Bayne, S.R. 19xx.  Kripke's Cartesian argument.  Philosophia.
  Trying to turn Kripke's argument against him: it's possible that pains and
  C-fibre stimulations are identical, so it's necessary that they're identical.

Bealer, G. 1994.  Mental properties.  Journal of Philosophy 91:185-208.
  On four arguments against the identity theory: multiple-realizability, modal,
  knowledge, and certainty arguments.  All face difficulties due to scientific
  essentialism, but the latter two can be reformulated to avoid them.

Blumenfeld, J. 1975.  Kripke's refutation of materialism.  Australasian
Journal of Philosophy 53:151-6.
  Kripke's argument doesn't refute token identity.  Pains can have other
  essential properties besides painfulness, so psychophysical token identities
  can be necessary.

Boyd, R. 1980.  Materialism without reductionism: What physicalism does not
entail.  In (N. Block, ed) _Readings in the Philosophy of Psychology_, vol 1.
Harvard University Press.
  Materialism doesn't need rigid identities, due to the compositional
  plasticity of mental states.  So the possibility of disembodiment is
  compatible with materialism.  The possibility of zombies is illusory.

Carney, J. & von Bretzel, P. 1973.  Modern materialism and essentialism.
Australasian Journal of Philosophy 51:78-81.
  A materialist must deny essentialism to meet Kripke's argument.

Carney, J. 1975.  Kripke and materialism.  Philosophical Studies 27:279-282.
  Comments on Feldman 1974: Feldman's view requires rejection of Kripke's views
  on necessity, or a problematic mixed view on rigid designators.

Cole, D.J. & Foelber, F. 1984.  Contingent materialism.  Pacific Philosophical
Quarterly 65:74-85.
  Argues that materialism is only contingently true, as it's conceptually
  possible that we could become immaterial by gradual replacement.

Della Rocca, M. 1993.  Kripke's essentialist arguments against the identity
theory.  Philosophical Studies 69:101-112.
  Kripke's premise that pains are essentially mental either begs the question
  (by assuming pains don't have physical properties) or weakens the premise
  that physical events aren't essentially mental.

Double, R. 1976.  The inconclusiveness of Kripke's argument against the
identity theory.  Auslegung 3:156-65.

Feldman, F. 1973.  Kripke's argument against materialism.  Philosophical
Studies 24:416-19.
  Painfulness need not be an essential feature of pains.

Feldman, F. 1974.  Kripke on the identity theory.  Journal of Philosophy
  Kripke's arguments against person-body and mind-brain identity rely on the
  essentialness of aliveness to persons and painfulness to pains.  There's no
  reason to grant this.  If we do, rigidity is irrelevant to the argument.

Feldman, F. 1980.  Identity, necessity, and events.  In (N. Block, ed)
_Readings in the Philosophy of Psychology_, Vol. 1.  Harvard University Press.
  Defending a contingent event identity thesis against Kripke.  Mental
  properties (which are distinct from physical properties) may not be essential
  properties of an event.

Gjelsvik, O. 1988.  A Kripkean objection to Kripke's arguments against the
identity-theories.  Inquiry 30:435-50.
  Uses Kripke's 1979 direct-reference theory against him.  When rigid
  designators don't have associated reference-fixing descriptions, we can't
  expect the "explaining away" strategy to work.

Hill, C.S. 1981.  Why Cartesian intuitions are compatible with the identity
thesis.  Philosophy and Phenomenological Research 42:254-65.
  The apparent contingency of identity is due to the fact that one can be aware
  of pain without being aware of C-fibers and vice versa, as well as to the
  fact that "C-fibers" may be picked out by a contingent description.

Holman, E. 1988.  Qualia, Kripkean arguments, and subjectivity.  Philosophy
Research Archives 13:411-29.
  Defending Kripkean arguments against various objections.  Analysis in terms
  of manifest properties and their role in fixing reference to the subjective
  and objective.

Jackson, F. 1980.  A note on physicalism and heat.  Australasian Journal of
Philosophy 58:26-34.
  A Kripkean argument against non-analytic physicalism.  Even if pain rigidly
  designates a brain state, the physicalist still has problems explaining the
  property of "pain-presents".

Jacquette, D. 1987.  Kripke and the mind-body problem.  Dialectica 41:293-300.
  Kripke's argument doesn't refute contingent identity between minds and
  nonrigidly designated bodies, which is all materialism needs.

Kirk, R. 1982.  Physicalism, identity, and strict implication.  Ratio
  Materialism doesn't need a identity thesis.  The requirement that mental
  facts are entailed by physical facts plays the role played by Kripke's
  requirement of necessary identity, and is more reasonable.

Leplin, J. 1979.  Theoretical identification and the mind-body problem.
Philosophia 8:673-88.
  Some theoretical identification are analogous to mental-physical
  identifications -- entities are introduced by properties considered
  essential within a theory, but this doesn't preclude identification.

Levin, M. 1975.  Kripke's argument against the identity thesis.  Journal of
Philosophy 72:149-67.
  The reference of "pain" is fixed not by essential features but by contingent
  topic-neutral descriptions; this is the real moral of Wittgenstein's private
  language argument.  So Kripke's apparent contingency can be explained away?

Levin, M. 1995.  Tortuous dualism.  Journal of Philosophy 92:313-22.
  Reply to Bealer 1994.  Tries to clarify the dialactic, and argues that the
  materialist can explain "possibility" of straw thought as thought conjoined
  with mere appearance of straw.

Lycan, W.G. 1974.  Kripke and the materialists.  Journal of Philosophy
  Kripke equivocates on "pain-sensation": pains aren't the same as impressions
  of pain.  Argues that imaginability arguments aren't decisive, and that
  functionalism may be less vulnerable than the identity theory.

Lycan, W.G. 1987.  Functionalism and essence.  In _Consciousness_.  MIT Press. 
  Painfulness needn't be essential to pains: pains are events, not objects,
  and events don't have essences; and the reference of "pain" is fixed by
  topic-neutral descriptions.  With remarks on pains vs. pain-sensations.

Maxwell, G. 1979.  Rigid designators and mind-brain identity.  Minnesota
Studies in the Philosophy of Science 9.
  "Brain state" reference is fixed by topic-neutral description; picks out pain
   but mightn't have, explaining the illusion of contingency.  "Nonphysicalist
   materialism" results, with mind the essence of matter.  An important paper.

Philosophical Quarterly 65:277-87.
  We can explain away the apparent contingency of identity in terms of possible

  identities between something perceived and something described. 

Merricks, T. 1994.  A new objection to a priori arguments for dualism.
American Philosophical Quarterly 31:81-85.
  Physicalism is compatible with the possibility of disembodiment: one can
  hold that mind and body are identical, that the body is physical, but that
  it is not essentially physical.

Mucciolo, L. 1975.  On Kripke's argument against the identity thesis.
Philosophia 5:499-506.
  "Pain" need not be a rigid designator, but instead may pick out a state by
  its causal role.  If it is a rigid designator, then the apparent contingency
  of identity comes from imagining something else filling the causal role.

Sher, G. 1977.  Kripke, Cartesian intuitions, and materialism.  Canadian
Journal of Philosophy 7:227-38.
  The reference of "C-fibre stimulation" might be fixed contingently, allowing
  the intuitive contingency of identity to be explained away.

Woodfield, A. 1978.  Identity theories and the argument from epistemic
counterparts.  Analysis 38:140-3.
  Contra McGinn 1977, the counterpart strategy fails as any pain that occurred
  here now would have been this pain.  A counterpart strategy on brain states
  may work.  With a reply by McGinn and a later rejoinder by Woodfield.

2.1a The Language of Thought (Fodor) [39]

Fodor, J.A. 1975.  _The Language of Thought_.  Harvard University Press.
  Argues that thought involves computation upon representations, and that these
  are structured as sentences in a mental language.  With linguistic and
  psychological evidence, and arguments that the mental language is innate.

Fodor, J.A. 1987.  Why there still has to be a language of thought.  In
_Psychosemantics_.  MIT Press.
  Because it fits explanatory methodology, it coheres with the usual
  ontology of psychological processes, and it explains systematicity.

Fodor, J.A. 1978.  Propositional attitudes.  Monist 61:501-23.  Reprinted in
_RePresentations_ (MIT Press, 1980).
  About what PA's are, and why they're at the foundations of thought.

Bonjour, L. 1991.  Is thought a symbolic process?  Synthese 89:331-52.
  Argues that symbol processing can't account for the intrinsically contentful
  nature of thought: using a symbol doesn't give understanding of its content.
  With defense against arguments from twin earth and conceptual-role semantics.

Braddon-Mitchell, D. & Fitzpatrick, J. 1990.  Explanation and the language of
thought.  Synthese 83:3-29.
  No need to postulate LOT: diachronic explanation is as good as synchronic,
  and high-level laws can exist without high-level causal connections.

Dennett, D.C. 1977.  A cure for the common code.  Mind.  Reprinted in
_Brainstorms_ (MIT Press, 1978).
  Review of Fodor's LOT.  Fodor's view is too strong: function, not structure,
  is criterial for content.  The structure of a predictive theory need not be
  directly reflected in inner processing.

Dennett, D.C. 1975.  Brain writing and mind reading.  Minnesota Studies in the
Philosophy of Science 7:403-15.  Reprinted in _Brainstorms_ (MIT Press, 1978).
  On the explicit representation of belief: criteria, plausibility, and
  relationship to verbal reports and conscious judgments.

Dunlop, G. 1990.  Conceptual dependency as the language of thought.  Synthese
  Relates Schank's conceptual dependency to Fodor's LOT.

Egan, M.F. 1991.  Propositional attitudes and the language of thought.
Canadian Journal of Philosophy 21:379-88.
  Contra two of Fodor's arguments for LOT.  Complex causes need not have LOT
  constituency structure; and evidence from psychological theory falls short.

Field, H. 1978.  Mental representation.  Erkenntnis 13:9-18.  Reprinted in
(N. Block, ed) _Readings in the Philosophy of Psychology_ (MIT Press, 1980).
  Analyzes belief into a relation between a person and an internal sentence,
  along with a semantic relation between that sentence and e.g. a proposition.
  With arguments against functionalist analyses, and against propositions.

Garson, J.W. 1994.  Syntax in a dynamic brain.  Manuscript.
  There are no good arguments for LOT of the form "The brain needs to do X, and
  X entails LOT".  Considers X = concatenation, logical form, tracking,
  combinatorial encoding.  Either LOT is weakened deeply or is unnecessary.

and Language_.  Princeton University Press.

Harman, G. 1973.  _Thought_.  Princeton University Press.

Harman, G. 1975.  Language, thought, and communication.  Minnesota Studies in
the Philosophy of Science 7:270-298.
  Argues that the primary role of language is in thought rather than in
  communication, and the language of thought incorporates natural language.

Heil, J. 1981.  Does cognitive psychology rest on a mistake?  Mind 90:321-42.
  LOT confuses processes with descriptions of processes.  Also, symbols cannot
  denote solely in virtue of structure, so must rely on human interpretation.

Brain Theory 4:139-59.
  Defends sententialism of the homuncular variety: little modules all the
  way in.  Lots of pro-belief arguments.

Lycan, W.G. 1990.  Mental content in linguistic form.  Philosophical Studies
  Distinguishes varieties of Sententialism, reasonable vs. mad-dog.

Lycan, W.G. 1993.  A deductive argument for the representational theory of
thinking.  Mind and Language 8:404-22.
  Argues from the unboundedness of thinking and the need for a finite stock of
  elements to something like a language of thought.  With remarks on
  connectionism and instrumentalism, and a reply by Stalnaker.

Matthews, R.J. 1989.  The alleged evidence for representationalism.  In
(S. Silvers, ed) _Rerepresentation_.  Kluwer.
  Argues that contrary to some claims, cognitive psychology does not provide
  much support for a computational/representational theory of propositional
  attitudes.  Specifically considers research in psycholinguistics and vision.

Matthews, R.J. 1991.  Is there vindication through representationalism?  In
(B. Loewer & G. Rey, eds) _Meaning in Mind: Fodor and his Critics_.  Blackwell.
  Fodor's theory can't deal with inexplicit attitudes: the core/derivative
  distinction is untenable.  But we can make sense of intentional causation
  and psychological explanation without explicit representation.

Millikan, R. 1993.  On mentalese orthography.  In (B. Dahlbom, ed) _Dennett
and his Critics_.  Blackwell.
  On some problems typing tokens in the language of thought.  There's no
  principled distinction between type-identical tokens and type-distinct tokens
  with an identity judgment.  With interesting remarks on co-identification.

Pessin, A. 1995.  Mentalese syntax: Between a rock and two hard places.
Philosophical Studies 78:33-53.
  Argues that there is no good way to individuate syntactic types in Mentalese.
  Neural typing, causal typing, and semantic typing all fail.

Rey, G. 1995.  A not "merely empirical" argument for the language of thought.
Philosophical Perspectives 9:201-22.

Schiffer, S. 1991.  Does Mentalese have a compositional semantics?  In
(B. Loewer & G. Rey, eds) _Meaning in Mind: Fodor and his Critics_.  Blackwell.
  Argues that the language of thought need not have a compositional semantics;
  productivity and systematicity can be explained without it.

Philosophical Studies 76:263-85.

Sher, G. 1975.  Sentences in the brain.  Philosophy and Phenomenological

Studies 58:129-46.

Dennett, D.C. 1978.  _Brainstorms_.  MIT Press.

Dennett, D.C. 1971.  Intentional systems.  Journal of Philosophy 68:87-106
Reprinted in _Brainstorms_ (MIT Press, 1978).
  Can view systems from physical stance, design stance, or intentional stance.
  Beliefs/desires are attributed under the intentional stance, with help from
  certain idealized norms of rationality and accuracy licensed by evolution.

Dennett, D.C. 1981.  Making sense of ourselves.  Philosophical Topics 12:63-81.
Reprinted in _The Intentional Stance_ (MIT Press, 1987).
  Reply to Stich 1981.  Irrationality is misdesign (take design stance).  Etc.

Dennett, D.C. 1987.  _The Intentional Stance_.  MIT Press.
  Beliefs/desires are useful predictive attributions.  This isn't inconsistent
  with a certain degree of realism (abstracta/illata distinction).

Dennett, D.C. 1990.  The interpretation of texts, people and other artifacts.
Philosophy and Phenomenological Research (Supplement) 50.
  Mental states are underdetermined: like interpreting a text, or finding an
  object's function.  Even adaptationist teleology gives no fact of the matter.

Dennett, D.C. 1991.  Real patterns.  Journal of Philosophy 88:27-51.
  Proposition attitudes have the ontological status of a noisy pattern that
  helps make sense of behavior.  This degree of realism falls on a scale: 
  Fodor > Davidson > Dennett > Rorty > Churchland.

Baker, L.R. 1987.  Instrumentalism: Back from the brink?  In _Saving Belief_.

Bickle, J. 1992.  Revisionary physicalism.  Biology and Philosophy 7:411-30.

  Clarifies different senses of "theoretical" and "belief".  Some beliefs are
  relevantly theoretical (dispositional, infra-conscious, unconscious
  ones), but conscious occurrent beliefs are not, and so can't be eliminated.

Jackson, F. & Pettit, P. 1990.  In defense of folk psychology.  Philosophical
Studies 59:31-54.
  FP holds that beliefs/desires play a certain functional role, and it's almost
  certain that objects playing that role exist, so FP is fine, whether or not

Bilgrami, A. 1987.  An externalist account of psychological content.
Philosophical Topics 15:191-226.
  Developing an externalist account consistent with psychological explanation.
  Contra Burge, social links aren't constitutive of content.  Causal links
  are indirectly constitutive of content, via our conceptions.

Burge, T. 1979.  Individualism and the mental.  Midwest Studies in Philosophy
  Belief contents are not fully determined by internal state, as the linguistic
  community plays an important role: arthritis, brisket, contract, sofa, etc.
  So mental states are not individuated individualistically.

Burge, T. 1982.  Other bodies.  In (A. Woodfield, ed) _Thought and Object_.
Oxford University Press.
  On Putnam's Twin Earth.  Natural kind terms are not indexical.  Even de dicto
  attitudes are not in the head; they presuppose the existence of other things.

Burge, T. 1986.  Intellectual norms and foundations of mind.  Journal of
Philosophy 83:697-720.
  On non-individualist elements due to by intellectual norms in the community,
  to which meanings are answerable.  Even meaning-giving truths can be doubted.
  With remarks on sofas/safos, and on linguistic meaning vs. cognitive value.

Butler. K. 1993.  Individualism, computationalism, and folk psychology.
  Challenges Burge's interpretations of the thought-experiments: e.g. twins
  have the same concept, neither of which is the public concept of arthritis.
  With remarks on computationalism and Marr's theory.

Campbell, J. 1982.  Extension and psychic state: Twin Earth revisited.
Philosophical Studies 42:67-89.
  Argues that natural kind terms are token-reflexive, with reference ultimately
  fixed to the underlying explanatory properties of the surface qualities of
  local matter.

Crane, T. 1991.  All the difference in the world.  Philosophical Quarterly
  Twins share the same concepts.  Contra Putnam: essentialism is fallacious;
  contra Burge: speakers share beliefs, but one has false belief about meaning.

Cummins, R. 1991.  Methodological reflections on belief.  In (R. Bogdan, ed)
_Mind and Common Sense_.  Cambridge University Press.
  We shouldn't rely on intuitions about thought-experiments; we need an
  empirical theory about belief.  Belief contents are distinct from sentence
  contents; we have to distinguish linguistic from psychological semantics.

Devitt, M. 1990.  Meanings just ain't in the head.  In (G. Boolos, ed) _Meaning
and Method: Essays in Honor of Hilary Putnam_.  Cambridge University Press.
  Against Searle's theory of internal intentionality.  Searle's theory
  requires magic to grasp external contents internally.

Dretske, F. 1993.  The nature of thought.  Philosophical Studies 70:185-99.
  Argues that thought is extrinsic, but it is not essentially social.  A
  system without a linguistic community could have thoughts, if it had an
  appropriate learning history.

Elugardo, R. 1993.  Burge on content.  Philosophy and Phenomenological Research
  Contra Burge on sofas: oblique that-clauses can't identify the (wide) way
  that the subject thinks of sofas, which is idiosyncratic and inexpressible.

Forbes, G. 1987.  A dichotomy sustained.  Philosophical Studies 51:187-211.
  Gives a Fregean account of belief semantics to handle the Burge cases, and
  argues that the *type* of a proposition may be internal even if the token
  itself is not.  With remarks on the relevance to Grice's program.

Horowitz, A. 1995.  Putnam, Searle, and externalism.  Philosophical Studies
  Argues for a moderate externalism by synthesizing Putnam and Searle:
  internal intension leaves extension indeterminate, but it specifies the
  facts relevant to filling in the indeterminacy.

Mandelkar, S. 1991.  An argument against the externalist account of
psychological content.  Philosophical Psychology 4:375-82.
  Argues that conscious experience is required for intentional states, and that
  any external relations could be satisfied without this experience, so
  external relations cannot suffice for intentional content.

McKinsey, M. 1991.  The internal basis of meaning.  Pacific Philosophical
Quarterly 72:143-69.
  Argues that meaning is determined by a certain kind of internal state,
  involving de se cognitive attitudes.  These states aren't shared by twins,
  but are still narrow in a strong sense.

  Functional organization doesn't determine attitude content, even if we
  include inputs and outputs.

Perry, J. 1979.  The problem of the essential indexical.  Nous 13:3-21.
  Indexicals are essential to some beliefs, so belief cannot just be a
  relation to a proposition.  Belief contents must be at least in part
  construed relative to a subject.  Separate belief object and belief state.

Putnam, H. 1975.  The meaning of `meaning'.  Minnesota Studies in the
Philosophy of Science 7:131-193.  Reprinted in _Mind, Language, and Reality_
(Cambridge University Press, 1975).
  What is in the head doesn't determine the reference of our thoughts: my twin
  on Twin Earth refers to XYZ where I refer to H2O.  Content is determined by
  environment and linguistic community as well as by internal stereotypes.

_Consciousness_.  Ridgeview.

Sosa, E. 1993.  Abilities, concepts, and externalism.  In (J. Heil & A. Mele,
eds) _Mental Causation_.  Oxford University Press.
  On concepts as abilities, and on construals of abilities that lead to
  internalism and externalism.  Maybe the relevant abilities are characterized
  externally but determined internally.  Remarks on Putnam, Davidson, Burge.

Stalnaker, R. 1993.  Twin earth revisited.  Proceedings of the Aristotelian
Society 63:297-311.
  Making sense of twin earth intuitions with an information-theoretic account
  of content: information depends on relations in normal conditions, which are
  extrinsic.  With remarks on the context-sensitivity of content-attribution.

Woodfield, A. 1982.  Thought and the social community.  Inquiry 25:435-50.
  Burge's arguments show only that context-ascription is pragmatically
  sensitive to context, depending on the epistemic predicament of the ascriber.
  Content itself is still internal.

Zemach, E.M. 1976.  Putnam's theory on the reference of substance terms.
Journal of Philosophy 73:116-27.
  Argues that the extension of `water' is the same on earth and twin earth,
  using arguments from isotopes and scientific development.  Molar properties
  determine classification.  Remarks on historicism and the division of labor.

2.2b Externalism and Psychological Explanation (Burge, Fodor) [35]

Burge, T. 1982.  Two thought experiments reviewed.  Notre Dame Journal of
Formal Logic 23:284-94.
  Reply to Fodor 1982, clarification of position.

Burge, T. 1986.  Individualism and psychology.  Philosophical Review 95:3-45.
  Psychology should be and is done non-individualistically, i.e. with reference
  to environment.  Examples from vision, e.g. Marr.

Clark, A. & Chalmers, D.J. 1995.  The extended mind.  Manuscript.
  Advocates a different sort of "active externalism", based on the role of the
  environment in actively driving cognition.  Beliefs can extend into an
  agent's immediate environment (e.g. a notebook) in this way.

Dretske, F. 1992.  What isn't wrong with folk psychology.  Metaphilosophy
  Argues that extrinsic properties can play a respectable role in scientific
  explanation; e.g. the histories of plants, animals, and devices are relevant
  in explaining their current behavior.

Egan, F. 1991.  Must psychology be individualistic?  Philosophical Review
  Maybe, maybe not.  Contra Fodor: science can be non-individualistic.
  Contra Burge re oblique ascriptions and Marr.

Fodor, J.A. 1980.  Methodological solipsism as a research strategy in cognitive
psychology.  Behavioral and Brain Sciences 3:63-109.  Reprinted in
_RePresentations_ (MIT Press, 1980).
  Should do psychology without reference to the external world. What counts for
  psychology is in the head; who cares about truth, reference, and the rest?

Fodor, J.A. 1982.  Cognitive science and the twin-earth problem.  Notre Dame
Journal of Formal Logic 23:98-118.
  Twin Earth isn't a problem for cognitive science.  Intents of utterances, de
  re/de dicto, etc. Truth conditions aren't in the head, but that's no problem.

Kitcher, P.S. 1984.  Narrow taxonomy and wide functionalism.  Philosophy of

  Argues against Stich, Fodor, Block: use different taxonomies (narrow/wide)
  for different purposes.  Both are OK, functionalism *and* content survive.

Kobes, B. 1989.  Semantics and psychological prototypes.  Pacific Philosophical

  Argues that we can know the meaning of our words a priori.  Analyzes twin
  earth cases by separating propositional meaning from linguistic meaning,
  which is indexical, fixes reference, and is knowable a priori.

McKinsey, M. 1991.  Anti-individualism and privileged access.  Analysis
  Contra Burge: if there are conceptual connections between wide contents and

  otherwise we could know a priori that the world exists.

McKinsey, M. 1994.  Accepting the consequences of anti-individualism.  Analysis

  external facts is trivial.  Almost all states do that, for Kripkean reason.

Warfield, T.A. 1992.  Privileged self-knowledge and externalism are compatible.
Analysis 52:232-37.
  Boghossian's argument that externalism threatens self-knowledge fails: twin
  cases needn't be relevant alternatives (unless they are actual), so they
  don't threaten knowledge of content, by the usual standards of knowledge.

Warfield, T.A. 1995.  Knowing the world and knowing our minds.  Philosophy
and Phenomenological Research.
  Argues that externalism and self-knowledge imply the falsity of skepticism
  (though externalism alone does not).  And arguments against externalist
  self-knowledge are no better than standard skeptical arguments.

Adams, F., Drebushenko, D., Fuller, G. & Stecker, R. 1990.  Narrow content:
Fodor's folly.  Mind and Language 5:213-29.
  Traces and criticizes Fodor's position on narrow content. Argues that narrow
  content isn't content, and doesn't explain behavior.  Fun but arguable.

Adams, F. & Fuller, G. 1992.  Names, contents, and causes.  Mind and Language
  Argues that problems with names don't require an appeal to narrow content in
  explanation.  Broad content plus associated descriptions will do the job.

Antony, L. 1989.  Semantic anorexia: On the notion of content in cognitive
science.  In (G. Boolos, ed) _Meaning and Method: Essays in Honor of Hilary
Putnam_.  Cambridge University Press.
  Representational cognitive science has no need for narrow content -- wide
  contents and formal properties can do all the work.  Argues that the
  semantics of mental expressions needn't mirror the semantics of language.

Baker, L.R. 1985.  A farewell to functionalism.  Philosophical Studies 48:1-14.
  Argues that type-identical functional states can differ in narrow content, so
  methodological solipsism fails.  Uses the example of identical programs for
  playing chess and arms negotiations.

Baker, L.R. 1985.  Just what do we have in mind?  Midwest Studies in Philosophy
  Some implausible twin cases trying to show that mental life can vary wildly
  while preserving physical/computational state.  Bizarre.

Baker, L.R. 1987.  _Saving Belief_.  Princeton University Press.
  Lots of arguments against narrow content.  Very stimulating, though wrong.

Biro, J.I. 1992.  In defense of social content.  Philosophical Studies
  Contra Loar 1988, the contents of "that"-clauses often reflects psychological
  content, even if it sometimes does not.  We don't need narrow content.

Block, N. 1991.  What narrow content is not.  In (B. Loewer & G. Rey, eds)
_Meaning in Mind: Fodor and his Critics_.  Blackwell.
  There are big problems specifying the "mapping" and the relevant contexts for
  Fodor's theory noncircularly.  Narrow content either collapses into syntax or
  is too coarse-grained.  Nontrivial narrow content must be holistic.

Block, N. 1995.  Ruritania revisited.  In (E. Villanueva, ed) _Content_.

Brown, C. 1993.  Belief states and narrow content.  Mind and Language 8:343-67.
  Criticizes the "bracketing" strategy of Stich and Walker, and argues that
  intrinsic belief state should be individuated according to how it embeds
  in different environments.  With a comparison with Fodor's related theory.

Chalmers, D.J. 1994.  The components of content.  Manuscript.
  Argues for a two-dimensional intensional theory, with different kinds of
  intensions constituting notional and relational content.  Notional content
  governs the dynamics of thought and behavior, and is primary in explanation.

Davies, M. 1986.  Externality, psychological explanation, and narrow content.
Proceedings of the Aristotelian Society 60:263-83.
  Comments on Fodor 1987.  Fodor doesn't make a conclusive case against
  externalism; but narrow content may be promising, and inexpressibility
  doesn't pose any real problems.  With comparisons to neo-Fregean theories.

Dennett, D.C. 1983.  Beyond belief.  In (A. Woodfield, ed) _Thought and
Object_.  Oxford University Press.  Reprinted in _The Intentional Stance_ (MIT

  it's hard to calibrate notional worlds.  Very nice.

Fodor, J.A. 1987.  Individualism and supervenience.  In _Psychosemantics_.  MIT
  Science taxonomizes by causal powers, which are locally supervenient, so
  psychology needs a narrow notion of content.  Proposes that a relativized
  notion -- a function from context to extension -- can do the job.  Nice.

Jackson, F., and Pettit, P. 1993.  Some content is narrow.  In (J. Heil and
A. Mele, eds) _Mental Causation_.  Oxford University Press.
  Argues that folk psychology needs a notion of narrow content to provide
  robust predictive behavioral generalizations that covers doppelgangers.
  If not, then some behavioral patterns would be flukey.

LePore, E. & Loewer, B. 1986.  Solipsistic semantics.  Midwest Studies in
Philosophy 10:595-614.
  There's no good way to construe narrow content.  Phenomenologist strategy
  is intrinsically wide, and indexicalist strategy can't specify content.

Loar, B. 1987.  Social content and psychological content.  In (R. Grimm &
D. Merrill, eds) _Contents of Thought_.  University of Arizona Press.
  Uses examples to argue that psychological content is not fixed by the content
  of "that"-clauses in belief ascription, and vice versa.  We require a subtler
  kind of narrow content to capture what's going on.

Maloney, J.C. 1991.  Saving psychological solipsism.  Philosophical Studies

Recanati, F. 1990.  Externalism and narrow content.  Nous.
  There are levels of narrowness, varying by whether independence is of actual

  hard to spell out with "diagonal" propositions.  Loar doesn't show that
  psychological content is narrow.  With some remarks on privileged access.

Stich, S.P. 1991.  Narrow content meets fat syntax. In (B. Loewer & G. Rey,
eds) _Meaning in Mind: Fodor and his Critics_.  Blackwell.
  Argues that narrow content is still too coarse-grained for explanation,
  classifying psychologically distinct states together.  Use syntax instead.

Taylor, K. 1989.  Supervenience and levels of meaning.  Southern Journal of
Philosophy 27:443-58.
  Argues that the partial character construal of narrow content is not
  interestingly semantic.  It collapses into syntax or phenomenology.

Taylor, K. 1989.  Narrow content functionalism and the mind-body problem.  Nous
  Uses a "fraternal twin earth" thought experiment to show that even de dicto
  attributions don't supervene on narrow role, and that narrow content can't be
  explicated descriptively unless it collapses into phenomenalism.

  Replies to Burge/Stich arguments by introducing partial character -- a
  function from context to content, analogous to Kaplan's character -- as the
  semantic property determined by functional state and relevant to explanation.

White, S. 1992.  Narrow content and narrow interpretation.  In _The Unity of
the Self_.  MIT Press.
  Argues for an account of narrow content in terms of notional worlds, by
  considering "objective optimality" across worlds.  This allows for a sort
  of narrow radical interpretation.  With arguments against Stalnaker.

  Attacks original intentionality (Fodor/Burge/Dretske/Searle/Kripke) -- our
  intentionality, if anything, is derived through evolution, and so is as

  phenomena, appealing to proper functions and adaptational role to
  individuate contents.

Millikan, R.G. 1986.  Thoughts without laws: Cognitive science with content.
Philosophical Review 95:47-80.
  The content of a desire is its adaptational Proper Function; the content of
  a belief is its Normal Condition for success.

Millikan, R.G. 1989.  Biosemantics.  Journal of Philosophy 86:281-97.
  Representation content is determined by the consumption of a representation,
  not its production.  The representation-world correspondence is best taken
  as a normal condition for the consumer's function.

Neander, K. 1996.  Swampman meets swampcow.  Mind and Language 11:118-29.
  It's not unreasonable to deny a swampthing beliefs: swampcows aren't cows and
  swamphearts aren't hearts.  Semantic norms are plausibly grounded in
  biological norms and so in history.

Newton, N. 1992.  Dennett on intrinsic intentionality.  Analysis 52:18-23.
  Contra Dennett 1988, designed creatures can have intrinsic (if not original)
  intentionality.  Overall purpose is dependent on designer's goals, but
  specific contents need not be.

Papineau, D. 1984.  Representation and explanation.  Philosophy of Science
  A teleological theory of belief/desire contents: the satisfaction conditions
  for a desire are those effects for which it was selected; truth conditions
  for a belief are circumstances resulting in satisfaction of desires.

Papineau, D. 1990.  Truth and teleology.  In (D. Knowles, ed) _Explanation and
its Limits_.  Cambridge University Press.
  Best theory is combination of a success-guaranteeing account of
  truth-conditions with a teleological account of desire.

2.4 Conceptual Role Semantics [14]

Block, N. 1986.  Advertisement for a semantics for psychology.  Midwest Studies
in Philosophy 10:615-78.
  An in-depth program for conceptual-role semantics, and its role in
  a two-factor account of meaning.  Also a defense of narrow content.

Block, N. 1988.  Functional role and truth conditions.  Proceedings of the
Aristotelian Society 61:157-181.
  A defense of functional role semantics, and an account of its relation to
  truth-conditional factors.  A two-factor theory will handle wide content.

Boghossian, P.A. 1994.  Inferential-role semantics and the analytic/synthetic
distinction.  Philosophical Studies.
  No matter how we understand the denial of the analytic/synthetic distinction,
  the falsity of inferential-role semantics does not follow.  The
  meaning-constitutive inferences needn't be the analytic inferences.

Cummins, R. 1992.  Conceptual role semantics and the explanatory role of
content.  Philosophical Studies 65:103-127.
  CRS conflates representation content and attitude content (which depends on a
  representation's "target"), so can't handle representation content; it makes
  all content-based explanations vacuous; and it can't handle error properly.

Field, H. 1977.  Logic, meaning, and conceptual role.  Journal of Philosophy
  Explicates conceptual role in terms of conditional probability, and analyzes
  meaning as conceptual role plus reference.  With remarks on truth,
  descriptions, and synonymy.

Fodor, J.A. & LePore, E. 1991.  Why meaning (probably) isn't conceptual role.
Mind and Language 6:328-43.
  Conceptual role semantics isn't compatible with compositional semantics and
  the denial of an analytic/synthetic distinction, as full conceptual roles
  aren't compositional, and there's no way to specify a relevant subset.

Harman, G. 1982.  Conceptual role semantics.  Notre Dame Journal of Formal
Logic 28:242-56.
  Meaning and content is determined by the role of symbols in thought (e.g.
  inference and perception). With remarks on indeterminacy, context-dependence,
  the linguistic division of labor, qualia, speech acts, and more.

Loar, B. 1982.  Conceptual role and truth conditions.  Notre Dame Journal of
Formal Logic 23:272-83.
  On the relation between conceptual role and truth-conditions.  Contra
  Harman, truth-conditions are to an extent independent of conceptual role.

Loewer B. 1982.  The role of `Conceptual role semantics'.  Notre Dame Journal
of Formal Logic 23:305-15.
  Contra Harman 1982, truth-conditions are central to a semantic theory.

Silverberg, A. 1992.  Putnam on functionalism.  Philosophical Studies
  Argues against Putnam 1987 that conceptual role plays an important role
  in determining meaning.  Appeals to the induction theory of Holland et al.

Warfield, T.A. 1993.  On a semantic argument against conceptual role semantics.
Analysis 53:298-304.
  Contra Fodor and Lepore, meanings can be compositional even if inferential
  roles are not, as long as meanings only supervene on inferential role.

Adams, F. 1991.  Causal contents.  In (B. McLaughlin, ed) _Dretske and his
Critics_.  Blackwell.
  On Dretske's account of the causal role of content.  Addresses some
  objections: Dennett's worries about intrinsic intentionality, Fodor's
  about external causal powers, and some worries about syntax.

Studies 63:99-111.

Bogdan, R.J. 1989.  Does semantics run the psyche?  Philosophy and
Phenomenological Research 49:687-700.
  A critique of Fodor.  Semantics per se doesn't cause.  Also, Fodor's is an
  account of the what, not the how, of semantics.  Somewhat bizarre.

Cummins, R. 1991.  Mental meaning in psychological explanation.  In
(B. McLaughlin, ed) _Dretske and his Critics_.  Blackwell.
  Criticizes Dretske's account of the role of content, especially because of
  its dependence on an organism's history; also, it may not cohere with work in
  cognitive science.  Argues for an interpretational, not a causal account.

2.8 Meaning Holism [16]

Block, N. 1995.  An argument for holism.  Proceedings of the Aristotelian
Society 95:151-70.
  Uses Putnam's "Ruritania" example to argue that narrow content, if it exists,
  is holistic.  Twins in different communities start with same narrow content,
  diverge by acquiring new beliefs; so belief change affects narrow content.

Heal, J. 1994.  Semantic holism: Still a good buy.  Proceedings of the
Aristotelian Society 68:325-39.
  A critique of Fodor and Lepore.  Distinguishes versions of holism, and argues
  for a weak version.  Real thinkers are subjects, which imposes constraints
  on the interrelations of thoughts.  Science fiction is irrelevant here.

Kukla, A. & Kukla, R. 1989.  Meaning holism and intentional psychology.
Analysis 173-53.
  Contra Fodor, meaning holism is compatible with intentional psychology.  Most
  psychological generalizations quantify over contents, rather than appealing
  to specific contents.

  holism and anatomism: there is a reasonable molecularist position.

  Argues that a failure to "naturalize" intentionality won't lead to disasters
  such as irrealism, irrelevance, or non-science, whether naturalization is
  understood as analysis, property identity, supervenience, or whatever.

Tye, M. 1994.  Naturalism and the problem of intentionality.  Midwest Studies
in Philosophy 19:122-42.
  There's no deep problem of naturalism about intentionality, as we know it's
  true already.  The real puzzle is that of finding a mechanism to close the
  gap, e.g. via analysis or essentialism.  But naturalism doesn't require that.

Crane, T. 1991.  Why indeed? Papineau on supervenience.  Analysis 51:32-7.
  Contra Papineau 1989: the assumption of completeness is false or trivial.
  Maybe the mental is part of a complete physics.  With response by Papineau.

Elugardo, R. 1988.  Against weak psychophysical supervenience.  Dialectica
  Various objections to Kim's arguments for supervenience.  Not all internal
  states relevant to I/O relations are psychological states.  Strange.

Kim, J. 1979.  Causality, identity and supervenience in the mind-body problem.
Midwest Studies in Philosophy 4:31-49.
  Supervenience of the mental on the physical is what is required to make
  mental causation possible.  Very nice.

Kim, J. 1982.  Psychophysical supervenience.  Philosophical Studies 41:51-70.
Reprinted in _Supervenience and Mind_ (Cambridge University Press, 1993).
  Internal mental states (i.e. ones that are not rooted outside) supervene on
  synchronous internal physical states, and internal states are all that is
  relevant in the explanation of behavior.

Kim, J. 1982.  Psychophysical supervenience as a mind-body theory.  Cognition
and Brain Theory 5:129-47.
  Distinguishes weak (within-world) vs strong (across-worlds) supervenience.
  Relates to reduction, internal/external mental states, and various theories.

  reduction, and on reasons for accepting psychophysical supervenience.  Loose.

Loar, B. 1993.  Can we confirm supervenient properties?  In (E. Villanueva, ed)
_Naturalism and Normativity_.  Ridgeview.
  If mental properties are supervenient but irreducible to physical/functional
  properties, we can't confirm them.  Confirmation requires an indispensable
  explanatory role, which irreducibility precludes.  With comments by Schiffer.

Haugeland, J. 1984.  Ontological supervenience.  Southern Journal of Philosophy
Supplement 22:1-12.
  Supervenience is all we need for materialism.  Various materialist arguments
  (unity, "nothing but", history, fear of darkness, simplicity, law) don't
  support physical exhaustion & token identity, over and above supervenience.

reduction.  Journal of Philosophy 72:551-64.

Hellman, G. & Thomson, F. 1977.  Physicalist materialism.  Nous 11:309-45.
  Some applications of the earlier treatment: examples of determination without
  reduction; the statuf of properties and universals; the mental; the life
  sciences; modalities and essentalism; theoretical equivalence.

  Some remarks on determination, physicalism, model theory, and logical truth.

Horgan, T. 1981.  Token physicalism, supervenience, and the generality of
physics.  Synthese 49:395-413.
  Argues that the generality of physics should be a supervenience thesis, not
  token physicalism.  Fodor's token physicalism is untenable but might be
  saved with an appropriate view of events.

Horgan, T. 1982.  Supervenience and microphysics.  Pacific Philosophical
Quarterly 63:29-43.
  An account of how all facts supervene on microphysical facts, and how all
  intrinsic facts supervene on intrinsic microphysical facts.

Horgan, T. 1984.  Supervenience and cosmic hermeneutics.  Southern Journal of
Philosophy Supplement 22:19-38.
  Laplacean demon's job: number crunching, plus cosmic hermeneutics to explain
  high-level truths.  All high-level truths follow from low-level by meaning
  constraints.  Application to theoretical/mentalistic/everyday terms.  Nice.

Jack, A. 1994.  Materialism and supervenience.  Australasian Journal of
Philosophy 72:426-43.
  Supervenience is neither necessary nor sufficient for materialism.  With
  various (contentious) counterexamples.  So we need a different formulation.

Kirk, R. 1996.  Strict implication, supervenience, and physicalism.
Australasian Journal of Philosophy 74:244-57.
  Argues for strict implication rather than supervenience as a formulation of
  "minimal physicalism" (unless supervenience is formulated just right).

Lewis, D. 1983.  New work for a theory of universals.  Australasian Journal of
  Formulates a definition of materialism: among worlds where no natural
  properties alien to our worlds are instantiated, no two differ without
  differing physically.  With a lot of other material on universals.

Melnyk, A. 1991.  Physicalism: From supervenience to elimination.  Philosophy
and Phenomenological Research 51:573-87.
  How can supervenience, as a relationship between ontologically distinct
  properties, be explained?  Modal realism and grand-properties don't work.
  Eliminativism about supervenient properties is the only possibility.

Pettit, P. 1993.  A definition of physicalism.  Analysis 53:213-23.
  Defines physicalism in terms of claims that microphysical entities constitute
  everything and that microphysical laws govern everything.  With a reply by

Seager, W.E. 1988.  Weak supervenience and materialism.  Philosophy and
Phenomenological Research 48:697-709.
  Weak supervenience provides a more tenable form of materialism than strong
  supervenience, because of inverted spectrum possibilities, etc.

Snowdon, P.F. 1989.  On formulating materialism and dualism.  In (J. Heil, ed)
_Cause, Mind, and Reality: Essays Honoring C. B. Martin_.  Kluwer.
  A construal of materialism in terms of constitution, not identity.  Discusses
  the entailment between physical properties and mental properties; considers
  a nonreductive physicalism and a primitive dualism.

  Supervenience doesn't entail reducibility, as necessary coextension doesn't
  suffice, and is incompatible with reducibility, due to ontological asymmetry.

McLaughlin, B.P. 1995.  Varieties of supervenience.  In (E. Savellos &

_Experience and Theory_.  Humanities Press.  Reprinted in _Essays on Action and
Events_ (Oxford University Press, 1980).
  Arguing for anomalous monism: no strict psychophysical laws, no strict
  psychological laws, and token identity without type identity.  Mental events
  can still cause, via subsumption under physical laws.

Davidson, D. 1973.  The material mind.  In (P. Suppes, ed) _Logic, Methodology
and the Philosophy of Science_.  North-Holland.  Reprinted in _Essays on Action
and Events_ (Oxford University Press, 1980).
  The psychological supervenes on the physical but is not reducible to it,
  because of the holistic nature of intentional attribution.  So building a
  perfect physical model may not explain psychology.

Davidson, D. 1974.  Psychology as philosophy.  In (S. Brown, ed) _Philosophy
of Psychology_.  Harper & Row.  Reprinted in _Essays on Action and Events_

Antony, L. 1989.  Anomalous monism and the problem of explanatory force.
Philosophical Review 98: 153-87.
  Criticism of Davidson's argument for rational causation.  Reasons must cause

  Anomalous monism implies that mental properties don't cause anything.

  If anomalous monism is true, mental events may cause, but their mental
  properties aren't causally relevant.

Johnston, M. 1985.  Why having a mind matters.  In (B. McLaughlin & E. LePore,
eds) _Action and Events_.  Blackwell.
  Anomalous monism loses out to Australian materialism.  It can't be a priori,
  it leads to exhaustive monism, it doesn't support a new view of free action,
  and it implies the causal irrelevance of the mental.

Kalderon, M.E. 1987.  Epiphenomenalism and content.  Philosophical Studies
  Davidson's view leads to epiphenomenalism about content, as it can't support
  the appropriate counterfactuals.  Strong supervenience might be a way out,
  but that is inconsistent with anomalism.

  How there can be psychophysical generalizations but no laws -- they might
  lack modal force.  On the relation between psychophysical anomalism and
  psychological anomalism.  Casting Davidson as a Kantian dualist.

Klagge, J.C. 1990.  Davidson's troubles with supervenience.  Synthese
  Anomalous supervenience is consistent, at the cost of anti-realism about the
  mental.  Supervenience is a constraint on interpretation, but needn't support
  counterfactuals as different interpretation schemes are possible, 

Klee, R. 1992.  Anomalous monism, ceteris paribus, and psychological
explanation.  British Journal for the Philosophy of Science 43:389-403.
  Problems with holism and ceteris paribus laws aren't unique to psychology.
  One finds the same thing in the physical sciences.  So rationality plays no
  special role, and psychological laws are as reasonable as physical laws.

LePore, E. & Loewer, B. 1987.  Mind matters.  Journal of Philosophy 630-42.
  Anomalous monism is not committed to epiphenomenalism, as even non-strict
  laws can ground counterfactuals and so support the causal relevance of
  mental properties.

Lycan, W.G. 1981.  Psychological laws.  Philosophical Topics 12:9-38.

In (J. Heil & A. Mele, eds) _Mental Causation_.  Oxford University Press.
  Comments on Davidson 1992.  Davidson can respond to critics accepting causal
  relevance of mental properties and still denying strict laws.  Davidson
  misconstrues his critics' positions on supervenience.

Melchert, N. 1986.  What's wrong with anomalous monism.  Journal of Philosophy
  Davidson is concerned with intentional, not phenomenal states; and his
  characterization of these is just as physical states under a certain
  description.  So he avoids epiphenomenalism (contra e.g. Honderich 1982).

content-individuation.  Philosophia  295-310.
  Supervenience is compatible with anomalism: biconditional laws are ruled out
  by the disjunctive base, and the wideness of mental states rules out one-way
  psychophysical laws, as there's no single property in the base.

Seager, W.E. 1981.  The anomalousness of the mental.  Southern Journal of
Philosophy 19:389-401.
  Elucidating Davidson's argument, focusing on the argument against
  strict psychophysical laws.  Generalizations involve disjunctive kinds
  and so are heteronomic and not law-like.

Seager, W.E. 1991.  Disjunctive laws and supervenience.  Analysis 51:93-98.

Phenomenological Research 54:803-14.
  Reduction comes to supervenience plus explicability.  Thus biconditionals,
  multiple realizability, etc, are irrelevant.  Biology is already reduced
  (mostly via functional explanation), and psychology looks promising.  Nice.

Bunzl, M. 1987.  Reductionism and the mental.  American Philosophical Quarterly
  On the links between supervenience, reduction, and explanation. Supervenience
  is compatible with reductive explanation of a localized variety.  We don't
  need laws, but explanatory links.

Churchland, P.M. 1982.  Is `thinker' a natural kind?  Dialogue 21:223-38.
  Psychology shouldn't be autonomous from natural science.  By analogy with
  biology, nature provides (a) conceptual insight, and (b) real constraints,
  e.g. thermodynamic ones.  Biology and psychology are continuous.

Dupre, J. 1988.  Materialism, physicalism, and scientism.  Philosophical
Topics 16:31-56.

Kitcher, P.S. 1980.  How to reduce a functional psychology.  Philosophy of

  high-level laws.

Addresses of the American Philosophical Association 63(3):31-47.  Reprinted in
_Supervenience and Mind_ (Cambridge University Press, 1993).
  Somewhat loose arguments that non-reductive physicalist realism is untenable.
  Anomalous monism makes the mental irrelevant, functionalism is compatible
  with species-specific reduction, and supervenience is weak or reductive.

Kim, J. 1992.  Multiple realization and the metaphysics of reduction.
Philosophy and Phenomenological Research 52:1-26.  Reprinted in _Supervenience
and Mind_ (Cambridge University Press, 1993).
  Multiple realization is compatible with reductionism.  Jade (= jadeite or
  nephrite) isn't a scientific kind, and neither are multiply realizable mental
  properties.  So there's no global psychology, just lots of local reductions.

Kirk, R. 1996.  How physicalists can avoid reductionism.  Synthese 108:157-70.

Crane, T. 1991.  All God has to do.  Analysis 51:235-44.
  If there are no contingent psychophysical laws, then there are no mental

Crane, T. & Mellor, D.H. 1990.  There is no question of physicalism.  Mind
  Physical sciences have no ontological authority over the mental.  Considers

Melnyk, A. 1996.  Formulating physicalism: Two suggestions.  Synthese
  Discusses two formulations of physicalism: requiring high-level properties to

Horgan, T. & Tye, M. 1985.  Against the token identity theory.  In
(B. McLaughlin & E. LePore, eds) _Action and Events_.  Blackwell.
  We individuate mental events by their causal role, but we can't individuate
  causes uniquely.  So each mental event has multiple physical correlates, and
  token identity doesn't hold.

the Aristotelian Society 55:73-92.

Haugeland, J. 1982.  Weak supervenience.  American Philosophical Quarterly
  Supervenience doesn't imply token identity, and Davidson's argument for token
  identity equivocates on "event". But weak supervenience (mentally discernible
  worlds are physically discernible) is all we need.  With nice examples.

Leder, D. 1985.  Troubles with token identity.  Philosophical Studies 47:79-94.
  Physical/psychological token identity is no good: you can't individuate
  physical events without psychological predicates.

identity theories.  Philosophical Studies 42:209-25.
  Functionalism is compatible with type identity, as e.g. "pain" designates the
  state-type that fills the right functional role in an organism at a given

  Mental states can be defined, via a Ramsey-sentence analysis of the

  with the understanding of privacy and incorrigibility.

Tomberlin, J. 1965.  About the identity theory.  Australasian Journal of
Philosophy 43:295-99.
  Contra Putnam: logical states are not physical states, and utterances about
  them are not about physical states.

Quarterly 69:165-74.
  Contra Lycan: machine functionalism can handle Bolivia and CRT cases by a
  causal/counterfactual account, and Lilliputian case by assigning mental
  states to minds, not bodies.

  and circularity.  Use intrinsic psychological properties instead.

Richardson, R.C. 1979.  Functionalism and reductionism.  Philosophy of Science

  no reason to suppose humans can either, as the rule is infinitary.

4.3 The Chinese Room (Searle) [55]

Searle, J.R. 1980.  Minds, brains and programs.  Behavioral and Brain Sciences
  Implementing a program is not sufficient for mentality, as someone could e.g.
  implement a "Chinese-speaking" program without understanding Chinese.  So
  strong AI is false, and no program is sufficient for consciousness.

Searle, J.R. 1984.  _Minds, Brains and Science_.  Harvard University Press.
  Axiomatizes the argument: Syntax isn't sufficient for semantics, programs are
  syntactic, minds are semantic, so no program is sufficient for mind.

Searle, J.R. 1987.  Minds and brains without programs.  In (C. Blakemore, ed)
_Mindwaves_.  Blackwell.
  More on the arguments against AI, e.g. the Chinese room and considerations
  about syntax and semantics.  Mind is a high-level physical property of brain.

Cam, P. 1990.  Searle on strong AI.  Australasian Journal of Philosophy
  Criticizes Searle's "conclusion" that brains are needed for intentionality,

  Gives an account of symbolic vs. subsymbolic computation, and argues that the
  latter is less vulnerable to the Chinese-room intuition, as representations
  there are not computational tokens.

Churchland, P.M. & Churchland, P.S. 1990.  Could a machine think?  Scientific
American 262(1):32-37.
  Artificial mentality is possible, not through classical AI but through

  electromagnetism and luminance.

Cole, D.J. 1991.  Artificial intelligence and personal identity.  Synthese
  In the Chinese room, neither the person nor the system understands: a virtual

  with the thing being simulated.  Nice.

Dennett, D.C. 1987.  Fast thinking.  In _The Intentional Stance_.  MIT Press.
  Argues with Searle on many points.  A little weak.

  Searle is committing a level confusion, and understates the complexity of the
  case.  We can move from the CR to a brain (with a demon) by twiddling knobs,
  and the systems reply should work equally well in both cases.

Jacquette, D. 1989.  Searle's intentionality thesis.  Synthese 80:267-75.
  Searle's view implies that intentional causation is not efficient causation.

Jacquette, D. 1989.  Adventures in the Chinese Room.  Philosophy and
Phenomenological Research 49:605-23.
  If we had microfunctional correspondence, the CR argument would fail.  With
  points about the status of abstract/biological intentionality.  A bit weak.

Searle, J.R. 1989.  Reply to Jacquette.  Philosophy and Phenomenological
Research 49:701-8.
  Jacquette misses the point of the argument.  Also, biological and abstract
  intentionality are quite compatible.

  as their representations lack compositional structure.  The allures of
  connectionism are illusory; it's best used as an implementation strategy.

Antony, M. 1991.  Fodor and Pylyshyn on connectionism.  Minds and Machines
  Fodor and Pylyshyn's argument is an invalid instance of inference to the best
  explanation, as there is much to explain than systematicity.  Connectionism
  and classicism may be compatible even without implementation, in any case.

future of folk psychology.  In (W. Ramsey, S. Stich, & D. Rumelhart, eds)
_Philosophy and Connectionist Theory_.  Lawrence Erlbaum.
  Connectionism implies eliminativism, as connectionist systems do not have
  functionally discrete contentful states, and folk psychology is committed to
  functional discreteness of propositional attitudes.

Bickle, J. 1993.  Connectionism, eliminativism, and the semantic view of
theories.  Erkenntnis.

networks.  British Journal for the Philosophy of Science 45:899-906.
  Distinguishes active from dispositional beliefs: the former are realized
  discretely in activation patterns, the latter nondiscretely in weights,
  which is all that folk psychology needs.

Chalmers, D.J. 1994.  On implementing a computation.  Minds and Machines
  Gives an account of what it is for a physical system to implement a
  computation: the causal structure of the system must mirror the formal
  structure of the computation.  Answers objections by Searle and others.

Chalmers, D.J. 1996.  Does a rock implement every finite-state automaton?
Synthese 108:309-33.
  Argues that Putnam's "proof" that every ordinary open system implements

  appropriate account of implementation resists these difficulties.

Cleland, C. 1993.  Is the Church-Turing thesis true?  Minds and Machines
  Many physically realized functions can't be computeted by Turing machines:
  e.g. "mundane procedures" and continuous functions.  So the C-T thesis is
  false of these, and maybe even of number-theoretic functions.

5.10 Free Will (a tiny selection) [15]

Churchland, P.S. 1981.  Is determinism self-refuting?  Mind 90:99-101.
  Argues with Popper/Eccles.  Determinism isn't self-refuting any more than
  anti-vitalism is self-refuting on the grounds that proponents must be dead.

Dennett, D.C. 1984.  _Elbow Room: The Varieties of Free Will Worth Wanting_.
MIT Press.
  Nice analysis of the various `bugbears' of determinism; stuff on "control",
  "could have done otherwise", and "self-made selves".

Eccles, J. 1976.  Brain and free will.  In (G. Globus, ed) _Consciousness and
the Brain_.  Plenum Press.
  If opinions are not free but forced, then they are not worth taking
  seriously.  Thus determinism undermines itself.

  Argues using neurophysiological facts and a Wittgensteinian analysis that
  Parfit's conclusions are not secure.

Hirsch, E. 1991.  Divided minds.  Philosophical Review 1:3-30.
  Dividing a brain doesn't give stream-reflexive knowledge and control (so,
  contra Parfit, couldn't have one half doing algebra and the other geometry).
