 21 July
Consciousness Debate Revisted

We looked at the debate on this topic

and how GS formulations can shed some light

 on why people find it difficult and possible ways to improve the debate

 and get a more accurate map of the territory. 

 We used formulations such as: viewpoints, elementalisms, multi-meaning,

extensional defintions, identification/reification, projection, etc. 

Some of us found this a challenging day.
