Biology versus computation in the study of consciousness

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 20 (1):159-165 (1997)

The distinction between phenomenal (P) and access (A) consciousness arises from the battle between biological and computational approaches to the mind. If P = A, the computationalists are right; but if not, the biological nature of P yields its scientific nature.
