"no observable consequences?" Is Pinker saying that Dennett considers subjective experience to be an epiphenomenon (the concept which Dennett abhors)?


He's referring to the fact that subjective experience is subjective and therefore unaccessable to external empirical study, except through processes like Dennett's heterophenomenology. It's an illusion, man.
