Consciousness and the Prospects of Physicalism

Derk Pereboom

Philosophy of Mind

  • This book offers a new sort of response to the knowledge and conceivability arguments that features a limited kind of representational error.
  • Pereboom provides a historically informed development of the Russellian monist view that known physical relational properties are underlain by currently unknown fundamental intrinsic properties.
  • In this book, Pereboom develops a nonreductive physicalist view that denies all mental/physical identities and features a new account of constitution.
