Title: Rob Sternhell
Does the philosophy of mind have a combination problem?

Abstract: Panpsychism is the view that mentality is ubiquitous and that our  
minds are combinations of the many smaller minds. One major objection  
posited to this view is the combination problem, which states that many  
minds cannot combine to form a another mind. Angela Mendelovici  
(forthcoming) argues that the combination problem applies to all theories  
of mind. If true, then panpsychists are in a much better dialectical  
position, or the philosophy of mind has considerably more work to do, or  
both. In this paper, I will assess whether it is right to claim that  
dualists, physicalists, and panpsychists have combination problems and  
whether they can be considered as equally problematic and difficult to  
solve. I will argue that at least physicalists have ways to refute  
combination problems by appealing to different standard of constitution for  
experience. Therein, I argue that Mendelovici’s arguments do not vindicate  
panpsychism but do suggest constraints on our accounts of the constitution  
of experience.
