Descartes 1986: 84) In order for this deception to occur, the mind’s contents must be worldindependent. Suppose it is only possible for me to have beliefs about 24 Humanism, transhumanism and posthumanism material objects if material objects exist. Then it would not be possible for me to be radically mistaken about their existence if the material world is a simulation. Descartes’ epistemology thus presupposes a doctrine now known as “internalism”. 8 Descartes also requires that these contents are transparent or directly evident to the subject.

After all, unless there is a time limit on updating, the system may need to review beliefs it has updated earlier in the light of updates of subsequent beliefs in the stack. Maybe the system will clunk away evaluating many irrelevant beliefs before it gets to the ones it needs to reassess in the light of its plan (Fodor 1983: 112–13; Wheeler 2005: 178–82). As Terrence Horgan and John Tienson point out (using Fodor’s analysis) this problem is compounded by the fact that a sophisticated, rational system will also need to be sensitive to non-local properties of a worldrepresentation like simplicity and conservatism (Horgan & Tienson 1994: 314).

Naturalist philosophy looks to the truth-generating practices of science rather than to philosophical anthropology to warrant claims about the world’s metaphysical structure. Naturalists think that human knowledge is the product of fallible primates whose biology does not equip them to reliably track the deep structure of the world. Philosophical naturalists regard earlier attempts, such as Kant’s, to carve out foundational truth claims secure from revision by the findings of science, history and observation as conspicuous failures, for they misinterpret anthropological facts about how we are disposed to think as facts about how the world must be.
