Abstract

Standard physicalist responses to Frank Jackson’s Knowledge Argument (1982) are argued to be unsatisfactory. Related arguments are then considered for Mind Body Dualism from Howard Robinson (2016), covering topics of scientific reduction and supervenience. I object to Robinson’s arguments for the mind dependence of various entities.
