The Physical as the Nomalous

I argue that physicalism should be characterized as the thesis that all behaviour is law-governed. This characterization captures crucial desiderata for a formulation of physicalism, including its broad import and worldview defining features. It also has more local virtues, such as avoiding Hempel's dilemma. A particularly important implication, I argue, is that this thesis makes the question of the mind's physicality turn on what the mind can do -- rather than what experience is (qualitatively or subjectively) like.
