Naturalism

“Naturalism” is another one of those tricky words. I don’t think it’s nearly as an important a notion as “physicalism” for the philosophy of mind, but it does come up and I mentioned it in passing in the last post. It’s possible, apparently, to be a naturalist without being a physicalist. I’m thinking of course of David Chalmers here who claims that mind is something fundamental to the way the universe is, like a fundamental law of physics, but something yet different.
