Title: Emergence, colour and the knowledge argument : so what if Mary didn’t know
Author: Schier, Elizabeth
Issue Date: 2007
School/Discipline: Dept. of Philosophy
Abstract: This study looks at one of the most problematic intuitions we have concerning consciousness which is that the only way to know what an experience is like is to have the experience. The aim is to develop an account of the facts that are represented in colour experience on which there are physical facts that we can represent only by having colour experiences. It is concluded that it is possible for there to be physical facts which we can know only via experience.
