Hello all,

What: Philosophy Club
When: Thursday, March 24, 8 PM
Where: Humanities 105

This week we will consider a philosopher who answers "yes" to question
posed in the subject line.  This answer is a tough pill to swallow.
But in William Lycan's short and punchy paper, "Qualitative Experience
in Machines", gives a compelling argument for it.  Here is the link to
his, and many other great papers:

Also, here's a link to Lycan's Wikipedia entry, with links to his
homepage: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Lycan

So stop by for some interesting discussion!
