Present and explain both Armstrong’s and Smart’s argument for rejecting the existence of mental states that are not ultimately physical. Be sure to explain Smart’s notion of “nomological dangler”. What does Armstrong think is wrong about behaviorism, and what does he think is right about it? How does he account for consciousness within his physicalist framework? Is this satisfactory? Why or why not? Drawing on Fodor’s “Mind Body Problem”, what are the strengths and weaknesses of behaviorism and “central state identity” theory, respectively. What is functionalism, and how does it preserve the strengths of these theories and avoid the weaknesses? Be sure to mention the distinction between type and token identity. Explain Fodor’s strategy for distinguishing genuinely psychological functional systems from non-psychological ones.
