[Abstract]This workshop will examine whether the thesis that consciousness is a process in the brain differs from other cases of what I call “compositional type-identities“ in science, such as 'Water is H2O', 'The temperature of a body is its rate of molecular motion', 'Lightning is an electric discharge through the atmosphere', only to the extent that the brain process or processes in question have not yet been precisely specified by neuroscientific research. The rapid development of such research in recent years makes it likely that such exact specification will soon be possible. It is, therefore, imperative that we examine whether the analogy holds good, or whether the alleged disanalogies are such as to rule out such identification. We begin with a brief history of the identity theory, beginning with Boring (1933), Place (1954; 1956), Feigl (1958; 1967), Smart (1959), followed by a glance at subsequent developments, such as eliminative materialism (Feyerabend 1963; Rorty 1965; Churchland 1981), central state materialism (Armstrong 1968), token identity physicalism (Davidson 1970/1980), Kripke's (1972/1980) intuition, and the qualia problem (Nagel 1974). We shall then examine topics such as the nature of the identity relation, the 'is' of composition versus the 'is' of identity, Boring's claim that perfect correlation is identity, the process whereby compositional type identities become analytic, with a consequent change in the meaning of the common sense concept involved, once they become matters of established scientifc fact, before considering some of the alleged disanalogies between the consciousness brain-process case and standard cases of compositional type-identity.

[Abstract]My contribution for this year's ASSC Conference includes two diagrams showing a suggested arrangement of modules within two interacting input-output transformation systems in the brain which I call respectively “consciousness“ and “the zombie-within“. These diagrams are lineally descended from the “information-flow diagram for the organism“ which Donald Broadbent published as Figure 7 (p. 299) in his 1958 book PERCEPTION AND COMMUNICATION. In DECISION AND STRESS (1971, pp. 11-16) Broadbent introduced no less than SEVEN modifications to the model as proposed in the 1958 book and set out in the original diagram. He made no attempt, however, to produce a new information-flow diagram incorporating these changes. For an unpublished series of lectures given in the University of Amsterdam in 1973-4, I prepared a revised version of the 1958 diagram incorporating these changes, but including some additions and omissions of my own. Further revisions of this diagram were prepared for papers, also unpublished, presented: in 1988 at the Annual Conference of the History and Philosophy of Psychology Section of the British Psychological Society in Leeds, in 1991 at the Neurosciences Institute, then in New York, NY, in 1995 at the Annual Meeting of the European Society for Philosophy and Psychology in Oxford, and in 1997 at last year's Inaugural ASSC Conference at Claremont, CA. In so far as copies still survive, all these versions together with some related documentary material will be displayed as an historical record of the evolution of the current model.
