I suppose my problem with the antinomy thesis is that the neurological dimension always seems to be on the losing side of the equation. That is, it simply becomes excluded from the discussions and we go back to talking about the mental like we did before. Sometimes with Zizek’s (and more recently Johnston’s) discussions of these issues I get the feeling that they’re just dressed up theology.

Just as the creationist folks changed the language in their textbooks to talk about “intelligent design” and sound more scientific and different from creationism (recall the Dover, PA trial where all of this came to light), there’s a way in which this sort of move functions in the same way. I certainly share the thesis that we can either look at consciousness or neurology, but never both at the same time, but I desire a treatment of this thesis where one term of the antinomy doesn’t take a privileged status.
