Modern Mechanistic Science holds that a human being is nothing more than  a highly complex machine built from molecular components. A representative of this view would say, "It woidd make life simpler for us if you would in the future say, 'My C-fibres are firing'instead of saying,  'I'm in pain'.No   wonder   that philosopher  Herbert  Feigl,   director  of Minnesota Center for the philosophy of Science, remarked,"Scientific psychology, as the well known saying goes, having first lost its soul, later its consciousness, seems finally to lose its mind altogether.
