These are followed by way of explanatory reviews, sometimes by means of excerpts from notes

brought into relation to the images.

See Ludwig (1996c) for criticism of these views. 12 Some philosophers have recently argued that conscious states may be exhaustively characterized in terms of their representational content. Examples are Lycan (1996), Dretske (1997), and Tye (1997). For contrary views, see Searle (1993), Chalmers (1996), and Siewert (1998). Representational accounts of consciousness have often 32 The Mind–Body Problem: An Overview 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 been motivated by the thought that it is easier to see how intentional states could be reduced to physical states than how consciousness could be.

We competently use such natural kind terms prior to discovering what concepts they express. This is explained by the fact that we treat such terms as tracking properties that explain easily identifiable features of things we in practice apply them to. We apply the terms in accordance with those features. The mistake in the original argument was to confuse competence in applying natural kind terms with grasp of the concept expressed: given that we do not know what property is picked out, we likewise do not know what concept is expressed.

The idea can be adapted to objects as the view that though some complex objects have mental properties, there are no strict nomic correlations or supervenience relations between physical and mental properties, or, in the stronger version, none at all. 50 Epiphenomenalism holds that mental properties are not causally relevant to anything (or, at least, to anything physical). Among late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century emergentists there was disagreement about the causal efficacy of the mental.
