Title: David Braddon-Mitchell
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.
When: Thu 17 Oct 2019 15:00 – 16:30 Eastern Australia Time - Sydney
