It was an interesting article: what I found most interesting is:
“This article was originally published in Opinion Page of www nytimes com”
I am impressed to see the NY Times published it.
Taking Russell’s stance of “the having is the knowing: Having conscious experience is knowing what it is.” is interesting: it puts introspection at the forefront in a way, which is a nice change of pace from the usual “we know everything but that which introspection provides”. At least, that’s my short take on it.
