Example text

The mind represents objects and states of affairs by way of its intentional states; and the key to understanding representation is the conditions of satisfaction of the representations: what it is that makes your belief true, what makes your fear be realized, what makes your desire satisfied. In these cases we find the clue to understanding what fears, beliefs, hopes and desires are, because it is their essential characteristic that they represent their conditions of satisfaction. Bunge: Don’t you think that the word ‘intentionality’, which was introduced by Franz Brentano in order to differentiate between psychic and physical objects, is ambiguous?

That Sherrington believed this statement deeply was revealed by yet another statement written in the first person singular, an unusual form for a scientist to use. In his Rede lecture on The Brain and its Mechanisms,T1 speaking of mental and physiological experiences, he wrote : ‘. . to many of us a mere juxtaposition of the two sets of happenings proclaims their disparity. . As for me, what little I know of the how of the one, does not, speaking personally, even begin to help me toward the how of the other.

Why should it not be interaction inside the physical system? Bunge: They don’t define ‘interaction’. In science interaction is a relation among things or among events. Creutzfeldt: My comment is only indirectly related to the Popper/Eccles book2 but I should like to try to prevent our discussions from getting too involved in a dispute between materialistic and dualistic beliefs. In the true sense of the word, dualistic theories may well be materialistic if they attribute to the mind a material nature of some sort (a force, a state, or even a real substance).
