IPTC INFO
CaptionIn philosophy of mind dualism is the position that mental phenomena are in some respects non-physical --- --- --- Descartes clearly identified the mind with consciousness and self-awareness and distinguished this from the brain as the seat of intelligence. Hence he was the first to formulate the mind–body problem in the form in which it exists today. Dualism is contrasted with various kinds of monism. According to his philosophy which is specifically called Cartesian dualism the mental does not have extension in space and the material cannot think. Substance dualism is important historically for having given rise to much thought regarding the famous mind–body problem. Substance dualism is a philosophical position compatible with most theologies which claim that immortal souls occupy an independent "realm" of existence distinct from that of the physical world. --- --- --- Aristotle shared Plato's view of multiple souls and further elaborated a hierarchical arrangement corresponding to the distinctive functions of plants animals and people: a nutritive soul of growth and metabolism that all three share; a perceptive soul of pain pleasure and desire that only people and other animals share; and the faculty of reason that is unique to people only. In this view a soul is the hylomorphic form of a viable organism wherein each level of the hierarchy formally supervenes upon the substance of the preceding level. Thus for Aristotle all three souls perish when the living organism dies. For Plato however the soul was not dependent on the physical body; he believed in metempsychosis the migration of the soul to a new physical body. --- --- --- In the dialogue allegory of the cave Plato formulated his famous Theory of Forms as distinct and immaterial substances of which the objects and other phenomena that we perceive in the world are nothing more than mere shadows. Aristotle's hylomorphics argued at length against many aspects of Plato's forms
