The pain problem: reply to Garfield
Abstract:I am grateful for Garfield's comments, which clarify my position. He says, for example, that I am a phenomenalist. I am not a phenomenalist. I say that there can be contents of consciousness that we are not aware of, in the same sense that there really is a chair next door and a gorilla outside my window-a real, live gorilla, with big teeth and no conditional statements. His other comments are equally illuminating.
