In this book Fabian Klinge develops a novel approach for explaining phenomenal consciousness. He defends a version of panpsychism, that is the theory, that (some of) the fundamental physical entities exhibit consciousness. However, in contrast to standard conceptions of the view, the author does not take human consciousness to be grounded in but emergent from the consciousness of elementary particles. In this form, he argues, panpsychism can overcome the doctrine’s Achilles' heel, the combination problem, without running into similarly severe problems—thus rendering panpsychism a strong contender to its problem-ridden rivals physicalism and dualism. In addition, the author provides a thorough analysis of the poorly studied concept of metaphysical emergence. He argues that, by refining some of the major contributions in the literature, emergence can be made intelligible enough to serve as a basis for a credible solution proposal to the mind-body problem. Contents - The Case Against Physicalism - Alternatives to Physicalism - Problems for Dualism and Panpsychism - Understanding Emergence - Constitutive and Emergent Panpsychism Target Groups - Lecturers and students of philosophy - Professionals in cognitive science and neuroscience The Author Fabian Klinge received his PhD from the Philosophy Department at the University of Tübingen. His research interests lie in the fields of Philosophy of Mind and Metaphysics.
