Must Physicalism Imply the Supervenience of the Mental on the Physical?
Abstract. In the literature on physicalism, one finds a plethora of supervenience relations along with debates over their respective roles in formulating the thesis of physicalism. However, one finds little, if any, debate over whether a weak supervenience principle, of the sort proposed by Frank Jackson, David Chalmers, and David Lewis is necessary for physicalism. This article questions whether a supervenience principle, even of this weak sort, is necessary for physicalism.
