It is widely believed that consciousness presents a “hard problem”, different in kind from those posed by other aspects of the mind, such as memory or attention. A huge amount of philosophical work has been devoted to this problem. But does consciousness really present such an intractable problem? Or is the problem an imaginary one, created by the way philosophers think about consciousness? What exactly is it that we are trying to explain with a theory of consciousness? This webinar will introduce these issues and suggest that, although consciousness certainly presents many explanatory problems, it doesn’t pose the single, hyper-difficult problem that many philosophers think it does.
