Abstract [en]

The first chapter will elucidate the overall subject of qualia and the evolution of consciousness, and provide current information as of this writing – as well as some key terms that better be clarified than left in obscurity. From there, arguments of both sides, the non-physical and physical status about the existence of qualia and its connection with consciousness will be examined in the following chapter. Equipped with these arguments, the last investigatory chapter will place them within the framework of evolutionary theory in order to clarify the paper thesis, and hopefully narrow down the strongest and weakest arguments so that a reasonable conclusion can be arrived at.
