Are Electrons Conscious?

Leave a comment

I just published this short piece on Oxford University Press blog, to accompany the publication of my book Consciousness and Fundamental Reality.  A question that often comes up when I give ‘the simplicity argument’ for panpsychism is “Why on earth should we think matter has an intrinsic nature????” It’s a good question, and so to answer it I’m going to write ‘Are Electrons Conscious? Part II’ in a couple of weeks, which will come out LSE’s philosophy blog ‘The Forum’. In the meantime, looking forward to a much needed holiday next week…
