About the Authors
  • In God and Phenomenal Consciousness, Yujin Nagasawa bridges debates in two distinct areas of philosophy: the philosophy of mind and the philosophy of religion. He proposes novel objections to Thomas Nagel's and Frank Jackson's well-known 'knowledge arguments' against the physicalist approach to phenomenal consciousness by utilizing his own objections to arguments against the existence of God. From the failure of these arguments, Nagasawa derives a unique metaphysical thesis, 'nontheoretical physicalism,' according to which although this world is entirely physical, there are physical facts that cannot be captured even by complete theories of the physical sciences.

    • Provides the first book-length discussion of knowledge arguments
    • Bridges debates on phenomenal consciousness in the philosophy of mind and the existence of God in the philosophy of religion
    • Introduces a unique metaphysical hypothesis regarding phenomenal consciousness
