'Consciousness and the Philosophers': An Exchange. In response to: Consciousness & the Philosophers from the March 6, 1997 issue To the Editors: In my book The Conscious Mind, I deny a number of claims that John Searle finds “obvious,” and I make some claims that he finds “absurd” [NYR, March 6].

'Consciousness and the Philosophers': An Exchange

But if the mind-body problem has taught us anything, it is that nothing about consciousness is obvious, and that one person’s obvious truth is another person’s absurdity. So instead of throwing around this sort of language, it is best to examine the claims themselves and the arguments that I give for them, to see whether Searle says anything of substance that touches them. The first is my claim that consciousness is a nonphysical feature of the world. Here Searle makes two elementary mistakes. The underlying point is that the position of pigs—and almost everything else about the world—is logically derivable from the world’s physical structure, but the presence of consciousness is not. The next issue is my nonreductive functionalism.

The Mind–Body Problem

The brain is physical. If the mind is physical, we cannot see how. If we cannot see how the mind is physical, we cannot see how it can interact with the body. And if the mind is not physical, it cannot interact with the body. Or so it seems. In this book the philosopher Jonathan Westphal examines the mind-body problem in detail, laying out the reasoning behind the solutions that have been offered in the past and presenting his own proposal.

One ... more abstractThe relationship between embodying emotions, feeling emotional states and acquiring and using information about emotion is currently the subject of a substantial amount of research in psychology and neuroscience. One of the most robust cases of mimicry is mirroring of emotional facial expressions, which facilitates social interaction, emotional contagion and emotion recognition (Dimberg 1982; Lundguist & Dimberg 1995; Niedenthal et al. 2005). The fundamental social process of automatic mimicry seems impaired in disorders such as autism.

Crucially, unlike motor stereotypies and repetitive behavior, the lack of social and emotional mirroring is unique to the disorder.

Consciousness as a Fundamental Building Block of the Universe.

In this wonderful TED talk, the philosopher David Chalmers invites for a new paradigm in science in which consciousness is established as a fundamental and possibly universal building block of nature.

Consciousness as a Fundamental Building Block of the Universe

Consciousness is a fundamental aspect of our existence, says philosopher David Chalmers: “There’s nothing we know about more directly… but at the same time it’s the most mysterious phenomenon in the universe.” The nineteenth century physicist Maxwell came to the conclusion that we can’t explain electro magnetic phenomena in terms of the existing fundamentals such as space, time, mass and Newtonian laws, so he postulated fundamental laws of electromagnetism.

The second idea Chalmers postulates, is that consciousness might be universal and that every system down to the elementary particles has degrees of consciousness. This view is also called panpsychism in philosophy or nonduality in the mystical traditions. Why Beauty Matters ∇ Roger Scruton BBC. Christian Leonardo.

Par Adèle Van Reeth Réalisation : Philippe Baudouin Lectures : Jean-Louis Jacopin Vous l’aurez compris, cette semaine les NCC vous emmènent dans le grand incendie de la pensée de Chicago, dans la boucle des économistes, sociologues et philosophes qui, tout au long du 20ème siècle, ont donné naissance à ce que l’on nomme des écoles de pensée encore bien vivantes aujourd’hui. Des aventures intellectuelles souvent contradictoires, divisées entre l’impossible deuil d’un monde ancien et la nécessité de forger de nouveaux outils pour penser une difficile modernité.

Milton Friedman, Leo Strauss, Albion Small, Allan Bloom, John Dewey, Saul Bellow, tous interrogent le libéralisme intellectuel et économique et la place de l’homme dans la démocratie américaine et occidentale. Tout de suite, pour commencer cette semaine, j’ai le plaisir d’accueillir Gérald Sfez qui vient évoquer pour vous la pensée de Léo Strauss. Peter Railton.
