I have heard several people discuss "The Philosophical Problem of Consciousness". I'm trying to put a label on the philosophical discussions(s) on this topic.
The ultimate question of consciousness regards the phenomenological experience of being - what is it? Where does it come from? What does it mean about us? Who else shares it?
That's precisely the problem - we can't yet formalize the concept we understand as "consciousness", and so any attempts to find a physical/mathematical definition are almost doomed to fail, as they can't really guarantee they are defining the actual concept we have in our minds when we say "consciousness".
My question is: What is the philosophical label(s) on the discussion(s) of the 'unsolved problem of consciousness'?
In my own attempts to answer this question I have come across:
Qualia - but this doesn't really address the philosophical problem
An Academic Philosophical Discussion - references three philosophers and seven categories of ideas
The Hard Problem of Consciousness - talks about philosophical and neurology angles
Damasio - The Feeling of What Happens - The Neurological Angle. Doesn't acknowledge philosophical problem, and says that consciousness is a consequence of several parts of the brain.
I admit I'm coming at it from the neurological angle (which says there is no problem) and seeing people saying:
"This is an insoluble problem! We can't even agree we have the same experiences, let alone agree on what consciousness is."
I'm trying to understand that point of view well enough to articulate it.
