Mind Body Problem I 49
Mind-body problem/McGinn: there seems to be no physical properties of organisms from which consciousness could arise under certain circumstances.
It is now even more difficult to specify exactly which property of consciousness ensures that it allows no physical explanation.
I 51
Mind-body problem/McGinn: is not related to any specific philosophical answer. If it were explained scientifically (not philosophically), we would not understand the answer.
II 67
Mind-body problem/McGinn: we cannot solve it, because we cannot see the mind.
