In this paper, focusing on the hard problem of consciousness, Chalmers tries to give an account of why it is so difficult to explain. He criticizes some recent works that use reductive explanation within the framework of neuroscience and cognitive science. This being done, he goes on to argue that these methods fail to come to grips with the hard problem. Then, he argues that, in order to attain a solution for the problem, we must move to a new kind of non-reductive explanation. This way, a naturalistic account of consciousness can be given. Finally he presents his own candidate; a non-reductive theory based on three psychological principles: structural coherence, organizational invariance, and double-aspect view of information.
