  1. Of Integrated Information Theory: A Philosophical Evaluation.Haoying Liu - forthcoming - Philosophical Psychology:1-27.
    Tononi’s Integrated Information Theory (IIT) explains consciousness as integrated information (Φ), i.e., the informational state produced by the whole system over the sum of its parts. Many philosophers are drawn to IIT, for it offers a way to explain consciousness in a systematic mathematical form. In this paper, I assess if IIT satisfies the demands of philosophers. I argue that IIT cannot address the ‘hard problem’ of consciousness. In particular, even though IIT is not a standard form of functionalism, some (...)

  • A Consciousness-Based Quantum Objective Collapse Model.Elias Okon & Miguel Ángel Sebastián - forthcoming - Synthese:1-21.
    Ever since the early days of quantum mechanics it has been suggested that consciousness could be linked to the collapse of the wave function. However, no detailed account of such an interplay is usually provided. In this paper we present an objective collapse model where the collapse operator depends on integrated information, which has been argued to measure consciousness. By doing so, we construct an empirically adequate scheme in which superpositions of conscious states are dynamically suppressed. Unlike other proposals in (...)
