Philip Goff is a philosopher who argues that the traditional approaches of materialism and dualism face insuperable difficulties. Materialism is the view that consciousness can be explained in terms of physical processes in the brain whereas dualism is the view that consciousness is separate from the body and brain. On the basis of this Philip defends a form of panpsychism, the view that consciousness is a fundamental and ubiquitous feature of the physical world. It sounds a bit crazy, but he offers a compelling argument that avoids the difficulties faced by its rivals.
