  • 3rd side (hint)
Define dualism.
The belief that mind and body are separate from one another.
Name at least two philosophers that have held or currently hold the position of dualism.
Rene Descartes
Plato
One is French.
One is Greek, and you get his name by changing one of the vowels in the name of the last planet in the solar syestem (before it got downgraded).
Name the problem(s) with dualism.
If the mind and body are separate, then how come we feel pain as a result of a physical evnt on our body, such as hot water on our skin? How come our body can be controlled by our mind?
Does the Esatern/Hindu idea of reincarnation support or negate the theory of dualism? How?
Supports; the mind stays the same but can move to a different body.
Do you agree or disagree with the concept of dualism?
Answers will vary. Disagree: Mind controls body so they cannot be separate. Agree: Mind is nonphysical, and body is physical, thus the two cannot be joined if one doesn't even physically exist. Extra Credit: I'm an interactional dualist. I believe that they are separate, but alsothat they are connected in some way, shape or form.
