Minimal Selfhood and the Origins of Consciousness - Rupert Glasgow

This quote was added by vietzerg
Both logical behaviourism and functionalism define 'mind' in terms of behaviour, the relationship being either of identity or causality. In this respect, they are attempts to delimit mind to what can be observed in public, dispensing with the troublesome first-person perspective of subjectivity and with the introspective 'privacy' that is by definition out of bounds to science. In the present unicellular context, behaviour is certainly all there is to go on.
