In the third part, chapters 7—9 are categorized as modern classics on RM by three contributors, Grover Maxwell, Michael Lockwood, and Galen Strawson, who are influential proponents of RM nowadays.

Maxwell makes an argument for the second commitment of RM with which we are now familiar. It says that physics, neurophysiology, etc. He tries to tackle the problem from a quantum approach, by using the hypothesis that brain can be regarded as a quantum-mechanical system Elsewhere, Strawson has argued that physicalism would culminate in a form of panpsychism, i.

Chapters 10 to 18 describe recent development and criticisms of RM. Of the 9 articles, almost all the contributors highlight that it is possible that RM may entail or at least suggest one version of panpsychism. However, only Gregg Rosenberg chapter 11 is explicitly in favour of endorsing panpsychism as a superior alternative to NM. All the others argue otherwise. For most philosophers, the panpsychist conclusion is too strong to defend If the inscrutables are phenomenal properties, then RM would culminate in panpsychism.

If the inscrutables are proto-phenomenal properties, then RM would culminate in panprotopsychism.

This is yet another term that Russell did not adopt himself If the inscrutables are neutral properties that are neither physical nor mental, then RM would culminate in NM. If the inscrutables are physical properties of a special sort, then RM would culminate in some versions of new physicalism. Concerning the first opinion mentioned above, Russell was not burdened with ontological claims, as if knowledge of physics more or less corresponds to knowledge of metaphysics.

How do you explain consciousness? - David Chalmers

The answer is experience. Russell laid down some axioms to assume a prior intuition of space.

Besides, whether RM entails panpsychism is still questionable. And along all of these lines, even if consciousness itself is not an intrinsic property of the physical world, it is involved in explicating fundamental characters of that world.
