Dan Dennett, in his article "Who’s On First? Heterophenomenology Explained" (https://ase.tufts.edu/cogstud/dennett/papers/JCSarticle.pdf) says:
"In short, heterophenomenology is nothing new; it is nothing other than the method that has been used by psychophysicists, cognitive psychologists, clinical neuropsychologists, and just about everybody who has ever purported to study human consciousness in a serious, scientific way."
Later in the article, there is the following:
"Goldman (1997) says that heterophenomenology is not, as I claim, the standard method of consciousness research, since research- ers ‘rely substantially on subjects’ introspective beliefs about their conscious experience (or lack thereof)’ (p. 532). In personal correspondence (Feb 21, 2001, available as part of my debate with Chalmers, on my website, at http:// ase.tufts.edu/cogstud/papers/chalmersdeb3dft.htm) he puts the point this way: "The objection lodged in my paper [Goldman, 1997] to heterophenomenology is that what cognitive scientists actually do in this territory is not to practice agnosticism. Instead, they rely substantially on subjects’ introspective beliefs (or reports). So my claim is that the heterophenomenological method is not an accurate description of what cognitive scientists (of consciousness) standardly do. Of course, you can say (and perhaps intended to say, but if so it wasn’t entirely clear) that this is what scien- tists should do, not what they do do."
I certainly would play the role of reformer if it were necessary, but Goldman is simply mistaken; the adoption of agnosticism is so firmly built into practice these days that it goes without saying, which is perhaps why he missed it."
There seems not to be anything in the article about the specific details of the origins of heterophenomenology. And nothing at all about when and where it was first articulated as a position on consciousness.
This New York Times article is readable: https://www.nybooks.com/online/2018/03/13/the-consciousness-deniers/ It claims that heterophenomenology (if I understand the article correctly, because the article doesn't mention that word) was an idea that was first created by scientists, and in the early twentieth century. But the article doesn't say who deserves credit as the discoverer of the idea and indeed denies that it is a discovery, taking the view that it is "silly". I first read the article a few weeks ago after Keith Frankish referred to it in this in depth YouTube video about philosophical illusionism. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y2n-s6C1iYQ&t=373s.
I want to know who came up with heterophenomenology. Who, if anyone, came up with heterophenomenology before Dennett, and when?
