Abstract

Leibniz's famous windmill metaphor posed a problem that much later Levine called the "explanatory gap," referring to the apparent disjunction between the mental and material aspects of reality. Neutral monism, in this respect, reveals itself to be a worthy rival to materialist monism, accepting the irreducible subjectivity of qualia. This thesis somehow separates psychology from physics and, if we add an additional hypothesis to it, banishes the possibility of thinking machines
