The Phenomenal Conception

The Phenomenal Conception

(p.17) 1 The Phenomenal Conception
Ignorance and Imagination

Daniel Stoljar

Oxford University Press

The question “what is the problem of experience” can be divided into two: what is the topic of the problem of experience, and what problem or problems are we raising about the topic. In this chapter, the author identifies the topic: events of experience whose defining characteristic is that there is something it is like to undergo them. Conceiving of experiences this way leaves open many issues that are philosophically controversial, issues such metaphysics of mind, ontology, qualia, consciousness, access versus phenomenal consciousness, and the diaphanousness or transparency of experience.

Keywords:   experience, phenomenal conception, ontology, metaphysics of mind, qualia, consciousness, access, phenomenal consciousness, diaphanousness, transparency
