Physicalism and global supervenience

Southern Journal of Philosophy 30 (1):71-82 (1992)
Abstract
This paper examines a nonreductive supervenience relation central to a philosophically popular version of nonreductive physicalism inspired by Donald Davidson. The paper argues that this global supervenience relation faces a serious epistemological problem that blocks its being superior to weaker, less general supervenience relations
