A Defense of Panpsychism

Leon of After Nature gives a detailed defense.

I plan to critique him, particularly on the point of emergence.  I expect that he already knows what I am going to say, but I think that the exercise will be productive for both of us.  Moreover, one of my first thoughts was that his description of panpsychism makes it sound like he is accepting dualism without admitting it.  Leon, be thinking about that, as I suspect you will have time to give a counter to that argument before I can raise a predictable critique.


  1. Hi Jason,
    I didn't write that - it was an HT. At the top of the post (and even under the paper's title) you'll find the author's information and link to the original article.

    But please feel free to engage the paper, I would like to hear your thoughts.

  2. Wow, Leon, it was late last night and perhaps later than I thought. My 15-hour day was clearly showing, and I thank you for correcting my foolishness.
