Аргумент «зомби» и проблема априорной выводимости

The present paper deals with the latest version of Chalmers’ zombie argument which constitutes a serious challenge to materialism in the philosophy of mind. That version includes T- and I- clauses aimed to cope with some recent objections.  J. Levine has demonstrated that so-called “Q factor” plays an important role in the argument justification. “Q factor”, though connected with “a priori entailment” problem, is considered by J. Levine apart from “I factor”. In accordance with his view we propose an alternative and more fundamental explanation for both “Q” and “I” factors’ role in the zombie argument. The key point of our approach is that supervenience conditional should be reformulated as a counterfactual one.
