Impossible problems and careful expositions: reply to Myin and De Nul

Chapter


Abstract


  • Myin and De Nul suggest that there may be no "precise link between what Hutto calls

    the object-based chema and the family of 'hard problems' about consciousness

    (including the 'problem of phenomenal experience' as well as the 'other minds

    problem)." They hold that the true source of these problems might be a more

    general 'objectivism'. I do not think that the hard problems can be solved but I do hold

    that adherence to the object-based schema (OBS) is the source of such problems

    when it comes to thinking about experience because it is the source of the

    temptation to think that they admit of straight solutions, at least possibly. That is

    and has long been my claim about the precise link between the OBS and much

    current thinking about consciousness.
