MATERIALISM AND THE AFTERLIFE

Paragraph 1: Cartesian Dualism is consistent with the belief in the afterlife, but contemporary philosophers reject it because of the problems that it poses. What are some of those problems? Paragraph 2: Materialistic theories could be compatible with some sort of afterlife which would be very different from the dualist idea of the afterlife that involves disembodies spirits. Find a materialistic theory of the mind among the ones we have studied in class that could be consistent with the possibility of some sort of afterlife. Explain the materialistic theory you chose, using one of the philosophers introduced in the videos or the book (Descartes, John Serle, David Chalmers,Jerry Fodor,Thomas Nagel, Daniel Dennett, Patricia Churchland) and show how that theory would allow for some sort of afterlife. Paragraph 3: Develop a thought experiment (fictional example) to show how the theory you chose in Paragraph 3 would be compatible with the afterlife (you may use yourself or somebody you know as the character in your example). Please notice that you cannot use dualism in this part of the essay. Paragraph 4: Do you expect we will be able to attain that sort of afterlife in the future? Is that sort of afterlife worth having?
