El autor principal de esta iniciativa se encuentra trabajando en dos artículos académicos en idioma inglés, uno sobre un modelo neuro-cognitivo y físico acerca de los qualia o experiencia subjetiva (en base a algunas ideas tomadas de la obra Proposiciones) y otro sobre el papel de la recompensa en la valoración y toma de decisiones éticas (también con ciertas ideas tomadas de la obra Proposiciones).
The main author of this initiative is working on two academic articles in English, one on a neuro-cognitive and physical model of qualia or subjective experience (based on some ideas taken from the work Proposiciones) and another on the role of reward in the evaluation process and making of ethical decisions (also with certain ideas taken from the work Proposiciones).
Preface (Of the book Propositions)
What are the main characteristics of existence? What consequences do they have for our world? How do God’s nature, ethics, or freedom condition the limits of reality? What is the nature of God if it exists? What does meaning really refer to? What is consciousness really and how is subjective experience explained? What is really the nature of ethical conduct? What is the most relevant ethical criterion for our lives? How is this criterion integrated to interpersonal or social conflicts? What is the role of the State based on this criterion? These, among other questions, will be addressed in this work of a philosophical-technical nature, where various questions from the area of metaphysics, epistemology, philosophy of mind, ethics and politics are explored and whose objective is to provide some theoretical solutions to certain current problems such as the nature of consciousness or the fundamental bases of ethical conduct.
The four main points of this work are: 1) on the basis of the limit of existence and its characteristic, it is explained how the notion that “because of the existence of a God there is meaning in the world ultimately” is wrong (the absence of meaning is independent of a God); 2) the meaning would not refer to what analytic philosophy develops in its postulates, and we can speak objectively of things like ethics or aesthetics; 3) the dimension of the mental, the subjective (the qualia), would belong to the sphere of matter-energy in a sense of identity in terms of our specific identity (it exemplifies that we perceive something, but we are also something), and in turn the entity from which we are placed in a sense of identity that refers to qualia must be a unitary entity; I develop the notion about what consciousness implies (the problem of unity or the unitary of what we are as a sense of identity)*; 4) the different ethical approaches, from utilitarianism to personalism, deontological ethics, emotivism, social ethics, etc., are poor and ill-justified, ideal behavior (ethics), and the same ethical approaches that have been made throughout of history are not justified in the abstract or imperative principles outside one usually claimed, neither in emotions in general terms, or in certain pragmatic, social, and utilitarian solutions, but in a state of reward of the subject; I developed my ethical approach of high reward states as the best ethical criterion to follow; in turn, other issues are developed to a lesser extent.
Few references have I placed, since most of what I have written has been the result of my thinking, particularly in the second part I make many allusions to brain functioning and neuronal patterns, but few references I have placed in this respect since most of my thoughts arise from basic considerations of brain functioning that do not refer to specific studies and is a fairly widespread knowledge in the field of neuroscience. With regard to my work in general, others may have thought some things in general terms about the same issues, but I consider that I have deepened and succeeded in establishing new contributions in the central themes and revealing to the extent I have achieved the ultimate implications of the postulates.
