    One of the greatest challenges of consciousness research is to understand the relationship between consciousness and its implementing substrate. Current research into the neural correlates of consciousness regards the biological brain as being this substrate, but largely fails to clarify the...

  • Privileged access, externalism, and ways of believing. Cullison, Andrew // Philosophical Studies;Dec2007, Vol. 136 Issue 3, p305 

    By exploiting a concept called ways of believing, I offer a plausible reformulation of the doctrine of privileged access. This reformulation will provide us with a defense of compatibilism, the view that content externalism and privileged access are compatible.

  • What is Externalism? Farkas, Katalin // Philosophical Studies;Feb2003, Vol. 112 Issue 3, p187 

    The content of the externalist thesis about the mind depends crucially on how we define the distinction between the ``internal'' and the ``external''. According to the usual understanding, the boundary between the internal and the external is the skull or the skin of the subject. In this paper I...

  • La mente extendida. CLARCK, ANDY; CHALMERS, DAVID J. // Cuadernos de Información y Comunicación;2011, Vol. 16, p15 

    Where does the mind stop and the rest of the world begin? The question invites two standard replies. some accept the intuitive demarcations of skin and skull, and say that what is outside the body is outside the mind. Others are impressed by the arguments of Putnam and Burge that the...

    The article offers information on the role of externalism in generating scepticism concerning the knowledge of content in human mind and body. It states that the knowledge of content should be based on the knowledge of external and content determining circumstances. It mentions that the person...

  • WHAT MÃœLLER'S LAW OF SPECIFIC NERVE ENERGIES SAYS ABOUT THE MIND. Rachlin, Howard // Behavior & Philosophy;2005, Vol. 33, p41 

    Johannes Müller's law of specific nerve energies (LOSNE) states that the mind has access not to objects in the world but only to our nerves. This law implies that the contents of the mind have no qualities in common with environmental objects but serve only as arbitrary signs or markers of...

  • A Dilemma for Higher-Order Theories of Consciousness. Gois, Isabel // Philosophia;Jan2010, Vol. 38 Issue 1, p143 

    Higher Order theories of consciousness have their fair share of sympathisers, but the arguments mustered in their support are—to my mind—unduly persuasive. My aim in this paper is to show that Higher Order theories cannot accommodate the possibility of misrepresentation without...
