Qualia VI 153
Qualia/Wittgenstein/Sellars/Rorty: the awareness of qualia is nothing more than to learn how to formulate judgments about qualia - that presupposes a relationship between qualia and non-qualia.
VI 405f
Robert Adams: only the existence of God could explain the correlation between brain and qualia.
Qualia/Robert Adams: cannot be analyzed, therefore not traceable to elementary particles. Reductionism "can be refuted by the fact that one sees red or tastes onions".
RortyVsAdams: this refutation is a typical "citing of the unspeakable". A reference to a kind of knowledge that cannot be questioned by any new description. For this is not knowledge by description, but knowledge by direct acquaintance. ((s) It cannot be transferred.)
RortyVsAdams: a lot must be provided in the language before a plausible reference to the taste of onions is possible at all.
