Materialism, functionalism, and supervenient qualia

Dialogue 32 (3):475-92 (1993)
Abstract
Qualia are phenomenal properties of sensations and perceptual states: they are whatever it is that gives such states their “felt,” qualitative character. (In speaking of sensations, I speak of course not of mental objects or mental contents, but of mental events—of sensings, not sensa.)
