Daniel Stoljar (ANU): Is Consciousness a Proper Object of Scientific Investigation?

Date and time

Tue, 24th Mar 2015 - 4:00pm - 6:00pm

Venue

Coombs Seminar Room B

This paper presents and discusses an argument that consciousness is not a proper object of scientific investigation.  I won't endorse the argument but I will suggest (a) that the conclusion of the argument could really be true; (b) that the argument may be resisted only at some cost; and (c) that the conclusion of the argument itself has some interesting consequences.
