Searle y el problema de la exclusión causal: vindicación del materialsmo frente al naturalismo biológico

In this paper I offer two reasons which favour usual materialist accounts of the mind in front of Biological Naturalism as a solution to the mind-body problem. The fist one says that Seare’s metaphysics gets inescapably trapped by the Causal Exclusion problem, whereas it can be shown, on my view, that certain reductivist and functionalist theories of the mind may deal promisingly well with this problem. The second one says that Searle’s main argument against Materailism the explanatory gap, renders his metaphysics ill-founded, and so that it cannot be claimed as a reason for Biological Naturalism ​
