9781330264348: The Doctrine of Mechanicalism (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Doctrine of Mechanicalism

Descartes advanced the hypothesis that brute animals having no souls, could have no true mental operations and no consciousness, and therefore, should be considered as insensible automata. Huxley contended that although in his opinion brute animals are automata, they are not to be considered as insensible, but as conscious automata; and that in this category man himself must be included. The thesis herein advanced is based upon the assumption that animal organisms are conscious fabricative machines, which are constructed and operated through the power of environing forces. And it maintains that if the governing factors of animal organisms are based upon the principles of mechanics, as embodied in the governing elements of analogous inanimate mechines, then a future state of conscious existence is reasonably assured, and important questions of metaphysics may be satisfactorily answered. The doctrine that animal organisms are dependently related fabricative machines, may be termed the doctrine of mechanicalism.
