Title: How our belief in qualia evolved, and why we care so much : a reply to David H. Baßler
Online publication date: 8-Nov-2016
Language: english
Abstract: David Baßler’s commentary identifies five unasked questions in my work, and provides excellent answers to them. His explanation of the gradual evolution of higher-order intentionality via a Bayesian account leads to an explanation of the persistence of our deluded belief in qualia.
