Physicalism and the First-Person Point of View: A Reply To Taliaferro and Goetz

God or Blind Nature? Philosophers Debate the Evidence (2007)
The second of three contributions to an e-book in which I debated Stewart Goetz and Charles Taliaferro on the question whether the human mind is material. I said that it is, and they said that it isn't. The article is meant to be intelligible to an educated general audience. In this second contribution, I criticize the appeals to introspection that Goetz and Taliaferro make to support their dualism.
