NagelVsReductionism/NagelVsBehaviorism: the internal perspective of the discourse or thought area which is to be returned, shows us something that does not include the reduction discourse. In the philosophy of the mind behaviorism does not work because the phenomena and intentional features cannot be explained by a purely external perspective.
