David Chalmers
I 74
Foreign psychic/other minds/epistemology/Chalmers: There is obviously an epistemological problem with regard to the foreign psychic because it is logically compatible with all the evidence we have that beings around us have a consciousness and also logically compatible with these evidence that they have none.
A corresponding problem does not exist in other fields, e.g. other biological systems or other economic systems.
They do not exist in relation to our own consciousness.
