  1. Philosophers Zone - 10 September 2011 - Zombies and consciousness

    Zombies have been enjoying a bit of a revival, lately (though perhaps ‘enjoy’, which implies inner consciousness, is not the word we want here). The Hollywood zombie is a revenge-seeking corpse with a fervent hunger for human flesh, the traditional Haitian zombie is a kind of robotic slave but the philosophical zombie is a hypothetical figure: a creature like us in every respect but with no inner life. So what does the zombie have to teach us about the nature of human consciousness?
