Abstract and Keywords

This article argues that claims of the subjectivity of consciousness are very strong empirical claims about the structure, acquisition, and content of concepts. It describes various neurophilosophical accounts of concepts and consciousness and builds a case against the subjectivity of consciousness. It contends that subjectivity eliminativism is superior over subjectivity reductionism and evaluates the proposal that one can only have the concept of what it is like to have certain experiences if one has had those experiences.

Keywords: consciousness, subjectivity, concepts, subjectivity eliminativism, subjectivity reductionism, experiences
