SPR LECTURE - PLURALISM AND THE MIND by MATT COLBORN

Many researchers today see the eventual reduction of consciousness to underlying biology as inevitable, but major obstacles remain. Current mainstream theory provides no coherent account of how subjective experience arises. The author traces his growing dissatisfaction with mainstream accounts and, following William James, proposes a pluralistic universe where subjective experience is irreducible to material processes.
