Colors/Frank Jackson/E.g. Mary: the famous color researcher Mary was born and raised in a black and white room. She is a gifted physicist and learns everything physical, what there is to know about the human brain. (with a black/white monitor).
One day she is released into the colored outside world. (She is not color blind).
N.B.: she says: "I have learned" how it is "to perceive the color red." (How it feels).
McGinn/Jackson: if true, then she did not know all about the mind, when she was in her room, although she knew everything about the brain.
Jackson: Mary-example: (color researcher in the room): "know-how-it-is" - without this, there is no complete knowledge. - Mary, as a brain researcher, does not yet know all about the mind.

Color researcher Mary/Jackson: (1998c): Jackson is of the opinion that the consequences of the Mary example are so implausible that a mistake must be stuck somewhere.
