Ferro on Anomalous Monism

Tonight, the first hour of the workshop was devoted to discussing Chris Ferro's paper on Anomalous Monism ("The Normativity of the Mental"). Chris wrote a provocative paper. He claimed to have a short, intuitive argument for anomalous monism that was in sympathy with McDowell's claims in "Functionalism and Anomalous Monism".

I'll post a summary of our discussion of sections IV and V of chapter 2 of Making It Explicit soon.
