The hard problem of the philosophy of mind - i.e. the problem of internal phenomenal content of perception (qualia) - is still considered, for the most, unsolvable. This paper deals with a phenomenological analysis of the main problems linked with the puzzling qualia problem. These problems are: i) the relationship between intentional mind and consciousness, ii) the epistemological and ontological reductionism, iii) the anti-reductionist naturalism, iiii) the eliminativism, iiiii) the embodied and ecological mind. The paper main conclusion is that phenomenology is different mainly from a methological point of view, adopting a horizontal and integrated model in place of a vertical and dichotomic one.
Keywords: Qualia, consciousness, intentionality, reductionism, embodied mind, integrated model.
