Philosophers, mathematicians and scholars have been unable to support one explanation of consciousness. Tye argument about consciousness which states that it is made up of properties of objects such as sapphires and the blue colored object example he gave does not explain a condition were a man lost his sight and after many years, he is given his sight back.

Surname3 stated that consciousness takes place only within our brain, the blind man will not be able to see clearly, differentiate colors or even objects. These challenge shows that consciousness is not made up of physical objects or the blue object color state. The arguments by Tre, Nagel among other philosophers who support the idea of dualism need to come to the realization that consciousness exists only in our brain and without brain, nothing not even animals can be counted as conscious. Additionally, the description they offer on consciousness is somehow less conclusive according to my own understanding of consciousness. The argument that consciousness is separate and above both physical and chemical components of the body is over stated. Viewing consciousness as an entity that can exist independent outside the physical and chemical laws of nature without conclusive proof is wrong. Although, I don’t want to criticize their arguments which are based on research and have been proofed by international academic community, I think my argument that brain is the source of consciousness be it human or other animals is better.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
