Revelation, consciousness+ and the phenomenal powers view.

Goff, P. (2020) 'Revelation, consciousness+ and the phenomenal powers view.', Topoi., 39 . pp. 1089-1092.

Abstract

Revelation is roughly the thesis that we have introspective access to the essential nature of our conscious states. This thesis is appealed to in arguments against physicalism. Little attention has been given to the problem that Revelation is a source of pressure in the direction of epiphenomenalism, as introspection does not seem to reveal our conscious states as being essentially causal. I critique Hedda Hassel Mørch’s ‘phenomenal powers view’ response to this difficulty, before defending a form of the ‘consciousness+’ response.
