  1. A Bayesian Exploration of C.S. Lewis’s ‘Argument from Desire’.Slater Simek - forthcoming - Sophia:1-17.

Given this symmetry, thesis belief (...)

Roughly, psychophysical harmony consists in the fact that phenomenal states are correlated with physical states and with one another in strikingly fortunate ways. For example, phenomenal states are correlated with behavior and functioning that is justified or rationalized by those very phenomenal states, and phenomenal states are correlated with verbal reports and judgments that are made true by those very phenomenal states. We argue that psychophysical (...)
