Three Approaches to Phenomenal Content

Tuesday, 16 February 2010, 4.30 PM, Zrinyi 14, Room 412


I compare three approaches to the determination of phenomenal content (that which characterises what it is like to have mental states or events). They are representation, relation, and property possession. For a variety of reasons, and at the risk of spoiling the suspense, representation (my favoured position) comes out on top. Along the way, I consider spectrum inversion, blurred vision, unconscious representational states, the phenomenal difference between belief and perception, and the implications of the existence of imaginary and hallucinatory states.
