Very roughly, this is the view that the phenomenal character of an experience does not go beyond its representational content or, equivalently, that all phenomenal differences are representational differences.
The ability of LD, that is, stems ultimately from the nature of logically supervenient facts. In broad outline, Chalmers’ idea can be explained as follows. Nonbasic, or (logically) supervenient, facts are instantiations of functional properties. And a functional property can be analysed in terms of its place in a nexus of causal relations. If, then, a basic property, or, more likely, combination of such properties, ﬁts into this place in the causal nexus then the basic facts, the instantiation of these basic properties, explain the non-basic ones.
According to a non-reiﬁed construal of supervenience language, talk of the supervenience relation is simply a way of adverting to the fact that two families of properties or facts are related in the way speciﬁed by one’s preferred formulation of supervenience. A nonreiﬁed construal can allow that there is something about the subvenient G-facts that makes for, and thus potentially explains, the instantiation of supervenient F-facts. However, the commitments of the non-reiﬁed construal include nothing more than G- and F-facts.
