Panpsychism, consciousness and scientific worldview

Tetyana Drozdova

Abstract


The paper deals with the problem of consciousness in the context of modern attempts to reject a conception of physicalism. In this connection the author refreshes the hypothesis of panpsychism, which, after a long period of oblivion, is now enjoying a resurgence, especially within analytic philosophy.
