Title: David Braddon-Mitchell
Causal Conditionalism

My preferred solution to the Conceivability Argument against physicalism  
about the mind involves a departure from the truth of analytic  
functionalism about the mind: the so-called conditional concepts strategy.  
This makes functionalism (probably) true, but no longer a priori: what’s  
analytic is not functionalism, but a conditional which has the truth of  
functionalism in its consequent.

This paper explores a new strategy which will have similar benefits to my  
own, but allows analytic functionalists to still hold that there view about  
consciousness and experience is analytic. I do this by invoking a similar  
conditional analysis about the underlying nature of causation while leaving  
the story about mental states unconditional.
