Ok, now that tests have been made and everything is running good we can get down to business. This past semester I have been working on cognitive studies and reading about consciousness. I like views from Daniel Dennett and other materialists and seem to find my self cringing at dualists (even dualists in disguise). I am curretly working on writing an article that reflects the magnitude of the error made by Descartes. It is meant to argue that Dennett's heterophenomenology is a better alternative to understanding consciousness that Descartes' dualism. I am trying to keep an nonfoundationalist account of understanding and knowledge about consciousness while building a solid materialist account of consciousness. I am not convinced it will work, but we will see how it goes.
