I 77
Analysis/Analyzability/Chalmers: if higher-level properties logically supervene on microphysical structures, the analysis is no problem. But we must look at the intensions of the concepts! Our terms are not suitable for all purposes from the outset. E.g. Are computer viruses alive? Is something book-like, stuck together by chance, a book?
I 78
E.g. tables can be attached to the wall without legs, etc. (> Definition/Chalmers,> A-Facts, B-Facts).
I 81
Analysis/Analyzability/Chalmers: Analyzability is given when it can be shown that intensions specify functional or structural properties. Therefore, higher-level facts can in principle be derived from microphysical facts and can be explained reductively.
Analysis/Awareness/Chalmers: the primary intensions of some concepts create problems with regard to conscious experience, e.g. color concepts. (> Circumstances, ideal observers, etc.)
