Ideas of Joseph Levine, by Text

[American, b.1952, Professor at Ohio State University.]

2001 Purple Haze
p.141 Even if we identify pain with neural events, we can't explain why those neurons cause that feeling [Papineau]
p.142 Only phenomenal states have an explanatory gap; water is fully explained by H2O [Papineau]
p.143 Materialism won't explain phenomenal properties, because the latter aren't seen in causal roles [Papineau]
