NATURALISM: A COGENT PERSPECTIVE
by Heresiarch

Trying to figure out whether Naturalism can account for consciousness or anything else is futile, because the endeavor assumes that we know the boundaries of nature and therefore would be able to identify any causes that are outside of nature, that is, any causes that are supernatural.

The fact is that our accounting of nature is incomplete.

Any phenomenon that seems to lie outside of natural explanation, such as, possibly, consciousness, might actually be entirely natural. It might merely occupy a position in nature that our naturalistic explanatory systems have yet to reach.
