dc.description.abstractI propose a model of perception by which unconscious sensory input can become conscious in a way that is entirely mechanical and \'non-spooky\'. Based on the model of perception found G.W. Leibniz philosophy, primarily the New Essays on Human Understanding, the Leibnizian Aggregate Model (LAM) of perception may, when fully matured through future investigation, provide a way for contemporary philosophers of mind to evade certain anti-materialist objections without having to flatly deny the intuitions that underlie them.en_US
