Block and Nagel

Please answer two questions, one from each section below. Each individual answer should be between 500 – 625 words in length
1.“Functionalism is misguided because, like behaviorism, it is wildly liberal (in Block’s sense).” Critically evaluate this claim with reference to at least two distinct thought experiments we have discussed in this course.
2. Why does Nagel think consciousness poses a special problem for those who would explain the mind in physical terms? Explain and evaluate his position.
Do not use outside sources, only use the sources I give (Nagel and Block paper). Critically evaluate the question and create your own opinion and thought. Only use the papiquer to support your claim
