Clean up & expansion[edit]

I recently added some stuff and cleaned up. However, this article could really use some expanding, especially in Jackson's work on ethics and perception. - Jaymay 07:49, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

Jackson's change of mind[edit]

There is a slightly misleading statement here: The article talks about Jackson's creation of the "Mary's Room Thought Experiment". Jackson's original answer to the question was "Yes, she does learn something new, thus Physicalism is false." He later ceases to be an Epiphenomenalist and his answer is "No, she does not learn something new."

Perhaps the article should take into account his change of opinion. Refer to the "Mary's Room" article for clarification.
Agreed. It has been added. - Jaymay 07:49, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

Photo needed[edit]

Would someone who can please snap a shot of him and upload it? Prospects of getting one by other methods don't look great; there are no photos on Flickr or similar sites for example. Richard001 (talk) 09:08, 8 July 2009 (UTC)
