Philosophy TV discussion with Richard Brown (2011)
Physicalists typically deny that we have ‘classic’ qualia (intrinsic, ineffable, private properties of experience), but insist that we have something more than merely ‘zero’ qualia (dispositions to judge that we have classic qualia). Is there a coherent ‘diet’ notion of qualia, which is intermediate between the two?
