A Place for Consciousness

Gregg Rosenberg

Oxford University Press

This chapter revisits the sliding tile puzzle metaphor that the author presented in the first part of this book. Through the challenges and regressive moves he made, the author was able to defend a group of ideas that are at odds with the physicalist orthodoxy within science and the philosophy of mind. He was also able to link consciousness and causation through various presentations on the need to treat them together. Also, through the Theory of Natural Individuals, he was able to provide a new perspective from which to understand nature and open questions on the possibility for an actual empirical and philosophical research program.

Keywords:   sliding tile puzzle, physicalist, science, philosophy, consciousness, causation, Theory of Natural Individuals, nature
