Abstract

Perhaps the most puzzling of the mind-body issues is the problem about the nature of the felt qualities or "raw-feels" of experience. Most philosophic positions on the mind-body problem - materialism, mind-body interactionism , evalutionary energent theories, epiphernomenalism, neutral monism - are positions taken in answer to this problem. The scope and content of this thesis is limited to examining one such position - the current identity theory that raw-feels are identical with physiological occurrences.
