Abstract:

Moody is right that the doctrine of conscious inessentialism (CI) is false. Unfortunately, his zombie-based argument against (CI), once made sufficiently clear to evaluate, is revealed as nothing but legerdemain. The fact is -- though Moody has convinced himself otherwise -- certain zombies are impenetrable: that they are zombies, and not conscious beings like us, is something beyond the capacity of humans to divine.
