(p.204) Chapter 10 Mind and Mentality
The Universe As We Find It

John Heil

Oxford University Press

The mental–physical distinction is scrutinized, and the possibility (defended by Spinoza and by Davidson) that the distinction is not a ‘real distinction’, but one of conception only, is defended. Philosophical motives for property dualism are assessed and found wanting. Metaphysical infelicities inherent in property dualism are highlighted, and various options including epiphenomenalism, emergence, and panpsychism evaluated and rejected.

Keywords:   mental, physical, real distinction, property dualism, non-reductive physicalism, epiphenomenalism, emergence, panpsychism, Davidson, Spinoza
