Abstract

The article focuses on the philosophical value of reductionism. It states that the type of eliminativism must not be the view of preference for reductionistically minded philosophers of mind. It also mentions that type eliminativism proposes to begin with building blocks of reality that are wholly nonmental and then showed how mentality can be nonmysteriosly made out of the said nonmental building blocks.
