Still Epiphenomenal Qualia: Response to Muller

Cavedon-Taylor, Dan (2009). Still Epiphenomenal Qualia: Response to Muller. Philosophia, 37(1) pp. 105–107.



Hans Muller has recently attempted to show that Frank Jackson cannot assert the existence of qualia without thereby falsifying himself on the matter of such mental states being epiphenomenal with respect to the physical world. I argue that Muller misunderstands the commitments of qualia epiphenomenalism and that, as a result, his arguments against Jackson do not go through.
