  1. 1. Is Searle a Property Dualist?

    Kandidat-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Filosofiska institutionen

    Författare :Felix Schröder; [2019]
    Nyckelord :John Searle; biological naturalism; reduction; consciousness; property dualism; mental causation; causality; physicalism; philosophy of mind; epiphenomenalism; overdetermination;

    Sammanfattning : It has often been argued that John Searle’s theory of mind, biological naturalism, due to its commitment to mental irreducibility amounts to no more than disguised property dualism. I suggest that a thorough analysis of Searle’s somewhat unusual views on the nature of reduction reveals this irreducibility to be not a metaphysical relation between mental properties and physical but one concerned only with the semantics of the respective terms used to refer to these.

    Nyckelord :theism; naturalism; simplicity; probability; background knowledge; metaphysical theories; ad hoc;

    Sammanfattning : In this essay I examine the plausibility of theism and naturalism.

  4. 4. Naturalism, subjekt och vår livsvärld : Kan en naturalistisk världsbild vara rimlig att omfatta?

    Master-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Teologiska institutionen

    Författare :Fernando Vasquez; [2019]
    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : In this essay I examine if naturalism can be a reasonable worldview to embrace for well-informed and reflective people. The rationality of naturalism will be concentrated on whether a naturalistic ontology, that holds that the ultimate reality is impersonal and material, can incorporate our self-conception as rational, free, meaning-creating and evaluative creatures.

Theism has the advantage of accommodating the individual with existential answers whilst having problems with integrating more recent scientific understandings of the universe. LÄS MER
