"physical function of the brain"?
not for me, as this constricts us to physicalism and we need to be more general than that as Stephen Harrison says. "Brain-linked" can include physicalism but "physicalism" cannot include all that is implied by brain-linked. Also physicalism is not a scientific theory but a metaphysical one for which there is no scientific evidence.
John Smythies, the Director of the Division of Neurochemistry at the Center for Brain and Cognition at University of California has proposed a name change to the parallel camp developing in the new topic on theories of the mind.
John is proposing a change to the camp title.
* Current live version:
** '''Consciousness is Real, Representational, and Part of Or Brain'''
* John's Proposed Change now in review for one week:
** '''Consciousness is Real, Representational, and Brain-linked'''
What do all of you think about this change? Can we get a quick survey?
I think the current version is better but I don't plan on objecting in a bid to get John in our camp. I also currently intend on making a similar change to this camp here for the same reasons. So if any of you would object to such a change please let us know so we can figure out what is best for everyone.
