In continuation of the published article about consciousness in the Guardian, there has been published a response of Philip Goff, a member of our Greenland conference “A way forward to solve the hard problem of consciousness”, where he describes the possible prospect of solving the mystery of consciousness.
“I participated in the Greenland consciousness cruise referred to in your article (The I in mind, 21 January). The majority of the participants were in the Daniel Dennett camp, according to which proper respect for science requires us to deny the very existence of consciousness. David Chalmers invited myself (a panpsychist) and Professor Martine Nida-Rümelin (a dualist) along to serve as an alternative voice. What became clear to my mind is that a way forward on consciousness is beginning to emerge”.
