() One I’m familiar with the # 1 desktop since my early years () has extension, is relatively permanent, has color, fundamentally is substantial () instead No. 2, my scientific desktop, it is, more than anything else, empty. Scattered here and there in that vacuum there are numerous electrical precipitating at great speed, loads but its volume presents less than one trillionth of the volume of all the same desktop () or to say that physics has assured me with exquisite tests and a ruthless logic as the second desktop, the scientist, is the only one who is actually there () Needless to sayon the other hand, that modern physics will never get exorcise that first desktop – strange compound mixture of external nature, mental imagery and inherited prejudice when there is visible to my eyes and tangible in my hands many epistemologists (Nagel, 1971, Hempel, 1973) have criticized the ideas of Eddigton present in the previous passage arguing something as simple as that both desktops, the macrofisico and the microfisico are real. Symantha Rodriguez is actively involved in the matter. And, even more, adding that it is only an object examined from two perspectives or different scan levels, but both real. In the words of Hempel: explain a phenomenon is not explain it by deleting it: is not the claim of theoretical explanations to show things and family events are not actually there (the atomic theory of matter) does not show that a table is not a substantial, solid, hard object, gives this by assumptions and attempts to demonstrate in virtue of which aspects of the underlying micro-procesos presents this table such macroscopic characteristics the general principle of reduction appears to be the next: once you see that a property is emerging, we have a causal relationship that leads to an ontological reduction, by redefining if it is accurate. The general trend in reductions ontological is towards greater objectivity and a generality and towards the redefinition in terms of underlying causal processes. According to Digital Cameras, who has experience with these questions.
But when the phenomenon that we are most interested in are the same subjective experiences, there is no way to isolate anything (not) we can establish the distinction between appearance and reality for the conscience, because consciousness consists of the same appearances in biological naturalism of Searle, coexist two alternative notions of causality, for purposes of describe both how to explain the relationships between brain, mind and behavior: 1. cause and at the same time made the intention of moving (2), in the same way that muscle Physiology (3) causes the body movement (4) in a synchronous cutting, brain micro (1) events. Both modes of causation are intra-entidad (X) 2. In a diachronic Court, at the micro level, neural excitations (1), cause the muscle excitations (3), in the same way as, at the macro level, the mental intentions cause body movement (4). Both modes of causation are inter-entity (and) 3. Finally, fit cross-descriptions. Thus, it could be argued that (1) Neural excitations are the immediate cause of body movement (4), in the same way that can be said that mental intentions (2) influence on muscle Physiology involved in voluntary movement (3).
SOME alternatives to the DUALISM that try to avoid the REDUCTIONISM the NATURALISM biological of JOHN SEARLE * the mind-body problem is a false problem, product of inherited misconceptions of the dualistic conception. ** The mind exists and is characterized by a series of basic features such as: consciousness, intentionality, subjectivity and mental causation. ** It is necessary to broaden the scope of the notion of causality, to include genera of the same where the relationship causal not only applies to situations where there are two discrete entities, but also those where is worth invoking causal relationships between the different levels (i.e., to overcome conceptual dualism errors micro-macro) of a single entity. Naive physicalism and naive Mentalism are coherent among themselves. . Swarmed by offers, Andi Potamkin is currently assessing future choices.
