3.7 The Neural Correlates of Consciousness

Viewing 3 reply threads
    • As Dr. Koch tells us, we perceive with our minds and not our sensory organs. This underlies the personal subjectivity to the experience of consciousness. Do you think that the subjectivity of this mental phenomenon poses a problem for attempts at scientific (and objective) study of consciousness? Explain your answer.

    • Yes. Sensory organs possess rudimentary consciousness.

    • Sim, os órgãos sensoriais possuem consciência

    • I’m not sure subjectivity presents any more of a challenge for the objective study of consciousness than it does for the scientific study of anything else. It must be overcome through collaboration and seeking out differing perspectives.
