Gertler, Brie, , . The Knowledge Argument
2005, In The Encyclopedia of Philosophy. MacMillan.
Added by: Clotilde Torregrossa, Contributed by: Simon Fokt

Abstract: The definitive statement of the Knowledge Argument was formulated by Frank Jackson, in a paper entitled ‘Epiphenomenal Qualia’ that appeared in The Philosophical Quarterly in 1982. Arguments in the same spirit had appeared earlier (Broad 1925, Robinson 1982), but Jackson’s argument is most often compared with Thomas Nagel’s argument in ‘What is it Like to be a Bat?’ (1974). Jackson, however, takes pains to distinguish his argument from Nagel’s. This entry will follow standard practice in focusing on Jackson’s argument, though I will also describe the main points of alleged similarity and dissimilarity between these two arguments.
