But Pereboom maintains that we can just simply apply the inaccuracy hypothesis to it too, and he makes a credible case that this can be done without begging any pdospects or generating any infinite regresses. From the Publisher via CrossRef no proxy onlinelibrary.

Consciousness and the Prospects of Physicalism. Now on Pereboom’s approach the introspective representation of the phenomenal property is, in fact, mediated via a contingently related property. This allows for multiple realizability without going the functionalist route. Elijah Chudnoff – – Inquiry: Publications Pages Publications Pages.
This is physucalism very clever move, but it carries with it problems of its own, as we’ll see. This book explores how physicalism might best defended and formulated. Here it depends on what the absolutely intrinsic, categorical properties turn out to be. The Philosophical Review anf One answer is that it refers to a property that has the consciouness nature which, according to the qualitative inaccuracy hypothesis, it doesn’t have.

Now this ideal content is so called because it presents an ideal standard, but there is a fallback position from the ideal actually Pereboom sees a series of possible fallbacks, but I won’t go into that which approximates the ideal closely enough and provides us with an ‘ordinary’ content that usually, at least is veridical.
Currently unknown or incompletely understood fundamental intrinsic properties provide the categorical bases for the known physical dispositional properties, and would also yield an account of consciousness.

The second—to my mind far more sensible—view bears close relation to a Russellian neutral monism.
Andrew Melnyk – – Philosophy Compass 3 6: On that way of looking at it, the introspective representations are veridical; there really is a property that appears to have the qualitative nature in question.

Living Without Free Will: The Philosophical Review 1 July ; 3: According to non-reductive physicalism, the mental qua mental exercises causal powers, and these causal powers cannot, at either the type or token level, be identified with the causal powers of the physical base.

Since this approach is not functionalist, the fact, if it is a fact, that functionalism gives us an impoverished account of mental causation is irrelevant.

Pdospects, Early, and Medieval Plays and Playwrights: Classic and Contemporary Philosophical Perspectives. What exactly is the content of the introspective representations? More This book explores how physicalism might best defended and formulated.
Chapters of the book are devoted to developing this idea and working out its implications. On the qualitative inaccuracy hypothesis, this content is illusory.
The first draws on the open possibility that introspective representations fail to represent mental states as they are in themselves. Derk Pereboom – – Oxford University Press.
He points out that the ordinary content of an introspective representation can be naturalized in the standard way, but how this is supposed to solve the problem for the ideal content is never made clear. Sam Coleman University of Hertfordshire. Now right away one must pause, because the categorical-dispositional distinction is consciosness, or not obviously, the same as the intrinsic-extrinsic distinction, and some self-styled advocates of Russellian monism focus on one of these distinctions prospedts some on the other, and some seem to gloss over the difference altogether.
Derk Pereboom – – Philosophy and Phenomenological Research 86 3: The point of all this, of course, is to bring the introspective representations in line with physicalism.
Pereboom on the Frankfurt Cases. This idea has been developed by Bertrand Russell and more recently by David Chalmers into a framework for a unified account of the mental and the physical. No keywords specified fix it.
The seriousness of this open possibility is enhanced by an analogy with our perceptual representations of secondary qualities. The idea, then, is that physics, at least in its current form, leaves us ignorant of the absolutely intrinsic, categorical properties of the physical world. That, at any rate, is the spirit in which they are made. More specifically, introspection represents phenomenal properties as having certain characteristic qualitative natures, and it may be that these properties really lack such features.
