Sample text

Given Searle’s thesis on the Background, one may strongly question whether Searle could explain the generation and activities of consciousness from a brain basis without becoming both metaphysical and experiential like Zhu Xi.

I say this, not to argue in favor of some sort of mindless ethical relativism. I think that is nonsensical.
