Camp Statement Go live Time :

Representational Materialism


Representational Materialism predicts qualia are physical things. For example, without the right physics or energy (the exact thing that is a redness quale), there is no redness experience. In other words, a computer using abstractions to represent redness with 1s and 0s could never experience redness as it exists in the brain. Representational materialism is in contrast to functionalist theories that predict redness is a function (for example, the computer abstraction mentioned above).
