Inverted Spectra Chalmers I 263
Inverted Spectra/Locke/Chalmer: (Locke, Essay Concerning Human Understanding, book 2, chap. 32, sec. 15): It would not lead to the falsehood of our simple ideas if the same object in the mind of different people at the same time evoke different ideas.
Chalmers: for Locke it is about systems with the same behavior, while we are concerned with physical differently structured systems, even if they are functionally equivalent systems. This is possible in a conceptual sense. Question: Is it also empirically possible?
