In particular, I will later reject Rosenthal’s claim that a person can be transitively conscious of something without being in any intransitively conscious state. Conceptual analysis reveals, I maintain, that this is incoherent. With these two terminological distinctions at hand, we can proceed to label the property denoted in (1), involving a creature’s being conscious, intransitive creature consciousness; the property denoted in (2), involving a creature’s being conscious of something, transitive creature consciousness; and the property denoted in (3), involving a state’s being conscious, intransitive state consciousness.

I will embrace the former claim but reject the latter. The result will be a picture in which the properties of transitive creature consciousness, intransitive creature consciousness, and transitive state consciousness all depend upon the property of intransitive state consciousness, in the sense that none of the former can occur in the absence of the latter.
