Recently, however, some philosophers have argued that this worry stems not from an elusive feature of the mind, but from the special nature of the concepts used to describe conscious states. Champagne draws on the neglected branch of philosophy of signs or semiotics to develop a new take on this strategy. The term  Read more...

Recently, however, some philosophers have argued that this worry stems not from an elusive feature of the mind, but from the special nature of the concepts used to describe conscious states. Champagne draws on the neglected branch of philosophy of signs or semiotics to develop a new take on this strategy. The term 'semiotics' was introduced by John Locke in the modern period? its etymology is ancient Greek, and its theoretical underpinnings are medieval. Charles Sanders Peirce made major advances in semiotics. Most philosophers know him as the founder of American pragmatism, but he also coined the term 'qualia', which is meant to capture the intrinsic feel of an experience. Since pragmatic verification and qualia are now seen as conflicting commitments, Champagne endeavors to understand how Peirce could have it both ways. The key, he suggests, is to understand how humans can insert distinctions between features that are always bound. Recent attempts to take qualities seriously have resulted in versions of panpsychism, but Champagne outlines a more plausible way to achieve this."@en ;
