I got around to reading it, prompted by Ray, on Inner Space, about archetype.
I am so glad now, that I read it. :)

On Inner Space I quoted these few lines, which I will repeat here:

I maintain that there is a powerful simplicity argument in favour of panpsychism. The argument relies on a claim that has been defended by Bertrand Russell, Arthur Eddington and many others, namely that physical science doesn’t tell us what matter is, only what it does.

GG.
