INTROSPECTION The idea is this. If introspection is unreliable with respect to Irreducibility, then we should not rely on it in determining whether Irreducibility is true. If introspection is silent about Irreducibility, then we cannot rely on it in determining whether Irreducibility is true. Either way introspection will not help us in determining whether Irreducibility is true. Premise (4) is false. A capacity that is unreliable with respect to or silent about Irreducibility cannot settle on its own whether Irreducibility is true.

So the phenomenal states the conscious thought that p puts you in will suffice to put you in cognitive intentional states – specifically ones with the same representational content of the thought that p. Hence Cognitive Phenomenal Intentionality. To see that Irreducibility and Cognitive Phenomenal Intentionality do not jointly imply (P), consider some conscious thought that p and suppose Irreducibility is true with respect to it and Cognitive Phenomenal Intentionality is true with respect to the phenomenal states it puts you in.

Introspection will tell you whether you are thinking about dinner, whether your thought and your hunger are phenomenally different, and whether your thought is intruding on the course of more lofty philosophical reflections. But it will not tell you whether Irreducibility is true. If this is so, then Extreme Optimism is false. It is reasonable to suppose that there are at least some individual differences, terminological variations, and differences in background beliefs and expectations among philosophers.
