Consciousness Rorty VI 144 ff
Dennett: his model of the manifold concepts relieves us of the obligation to explain (the metaphors of) Qualia. We can attribute to the historically developed language.
NagelVsDennett: ridiculous! A theory of consciousness, in which the mental realities do not matter, is like a book on Picasso, without images.
Consciousness / Nagel: That a man has consciousness, is not merely a belief, but a conclusion from the evidence.
So there is a gap (according to Rorty) between the evidence and the conclusion from the evidence.
