Daniel Dennett: “Quining Qualia” : philosophy

This chapter examines the origin and coherence of a certain candidate notion of qualia. Qualia are supposed to be special properties, in some hard-to-define way.

By exposing the groundlessness of qualia-based insights, this chapter undermines the notion of qualia as absolute non-relationalatomic properties of phenomenal experience. Whether such notions of the properties of phenomenal experience are the same as those countenanced by others is a moot point.

However if one considers the tacit assumptions underlying much classical psychophysics, the discussion presented here has some force.
