Dualism and secondary quality eliminativism: Putting a new spin on the knowledge argument

Philosophical Studies 128 (2):229-56 (2006)
Frank Jackson formulated his knowledge argument as an argument for dualism . In this paper I show how the argument can be modified to also establish the irreducibility of the secondary qualities to the properties of physical theory, and ultimately.
