the idea that there is "something it is like" to have a particular form of consciousness, that this is perspectival or subjective, and that it therefore cannot be stated in the objective language of materialism, or at least we have no idea how that would be done.... Unfortunately, this response is itself fundamentally flawed, for much the same reason that materialism itself is flawed.Quite right! I can tell I'll be spending too much time in these places. (Better stop reading The Valve ...).
Addendum: I see N. N. has another Wittgenstein blog, Language Games, in the blogroll. I haven't checked this one out yet, but don't let that stop you.
