Chalmers I 24
Mind Body Problem/Jackendoff/Chalmers: (Jackendoff, 1987): we can regard it as a mind-mind problem. What remains is the question of how and why the psychological properties are accompanied by phenomenal properties, e.g. why reactions that are associated with pain are accompanied by a painful experience of pain.
