Moreland argues that the life of finite, irreducible realization (or its commonplace, law-like correlation with actual states) presents proof for the life of God. in addition, he analyzes and criticizes the head consultant of rival ways to explaining the foundation of attention, together with John Searle’s contingent correlation, Timothy O’Connor’s emergent necessitation, Colin McGinn’s mysterian ‘‘naturalism,’’ David Skrbina’s panpsychism and Philip Clayton’s pluralistic emergentist monism. Moreland concludes that those techniques can be rejected in want of what he calls ‘‘the Argument from Consciousness.’’
