Searle 1992: 81). Consciousness and conceptual schema Under the sway of Cartesianism, some philosophers have denied that we are able to speak freely about the quality of phenomenal experiences. 11 If this thesis were correct then we would be unable to talk sensibly to others about our phenomenal experiences since their nature would be radically inexpressible. For an example of the kind of thinking which this view promotes, consider this passage from Farrell: When, for example, we look at a red patch, we all just know what it is like to have the corresponding experience, and we all just know how it differs from the experience we have when looking at a green patch.

Rather the direct proper functions of icons need to be explicated with reference to what effect they produce on or for their consumer devices given the normal, or ideal, conditions for the operation (cf. Jacob 1997: 110). With this in hand, we are now in a position to see how all this relates to representational theories of experience. Consider Tye’s remark: Experiences nonconceptually represent that there is a surface or an internal region having so-and-so features at such-and-such locations, and thereby they acquire their phenomenal character (Tye 1996: 139).

This requires transformation not knowledge, per se. Dennett’s reply to Nagel’s challenge is, particularly interesting in this light (Dennett 1991: 441–444). He claims that the, “…task [of understanding bat consciousness] would require us to subject ourselves to vast transformations…[but] we could use our research to say what these transformations would be” (Dennett 1991: 442, 444). For instance, with reference to the case of the bat, he says our biological and ecological research would help by showing, “…us a great deal of what a bat could and could not be conscious of under various conditions” (Dennett 1991: 444, emphasis mine).
