That's a really interesting argument. I'll have to think some more about some of the more subtle moves you're making. You're clearly a careful and very interesting thinker. has taught you well!

You obviously have never read any of the arguments I've given for panpsychism.

I might be with you there. Galen and I disagree on how best to define physicalism (a theme he takes up in his Guardian review of my book). I think it's best just to use the word in a way that's most useful for having the debates we want to have.

I think of panpsychism as a middle way between materialism and standard idealism.

Panpsychists who think particles also have non-mental properties are not idealists; idealists (most) who think physical world is not fundamental are not panpsychists.

This is awful from - telling its PhD tutors on internal teaching scholarships that they’re “not employees” so don’t have the right to participate in the strike (despite doing exactly the same teaching as self-funded and externally-funded PhDs)...

I don't think Galileo minds. He's got thick skin.

I think Descartes was right that the mind is better known than the body external world. He reaches that conclusion in first two meditations before we get to God. I think it's goes a bit wrong after that.
