Editorial Reviews

Review

A fascinating account of the phenomenal aspects of consciousness. Clearly written, philosophically sophisticated, and scientifically informed. Tye's book develops a persuasive and, in many respects, original argument for the view that the qualitative side of our mental life is representational in nature.

(Fred Dretske, Stanford University)

Format: Paperback
Michael Tye is a philosopher at the University of Texas at Austin, who has also written books such as Consciousness Revisited: Materialism without Phenomenal Concepts,Consciousness, Color, and Content, The Imagery Debate, etc.

He wrote in the "Acknowledgements" section of this 1995 book, "[in 1984] I tried to defend a materialist view of experience and feeling against some familiar philosophical objections... in later years, I came to think that I had made a serious mistake. Not only are the phenomenal or felt aspects of our mental lives representational but also (relatedly) they are not even in the head at all... The present book is an attempt to explain why my earlier assumptions should be rejected and to propose an alternative positive theory... The thesis that phenomenal character is representational is an idea whose time has come." He adds in the Introduction, "The target domain... is PHENOMENAL consciousness... the sort of consciousness that is integral to experiences and sensations... The target problems, of which there are ten, are each concerned with an important aspect of phenomenal consciousness. The goal is to articulate a theory that solves ALL the problems." (Pg.
