causality

issues

Can the same mind exist separately from the body or in different bodies?

If we build machines from metal and silicon, can they have a mind?

Which of these are questions about the physical world? I.e., which of these can be answered experimentally?

arguments against dualism

experimental results

substance dualism

arguments against physicalism

Existence of qualia - even though we have complete information about the physical makeup of another being, we may still not know what it "feels like" to be that being

Once you accept predicate dualism, you really need to accept property dualism, since you can't support different predicates without also having different properties somewhere.

Because you can imagine your mind existing without your body, the mind is a different entity from your body.

Because we have a continuous personal identity over time despite our bodies changing, the mind must be separate from the body.

The mind is strictly more powerful than any physical system. (Hypercomputation.)

Some evidence suggests that the mind is unaffected by significant biochemical changes in the brain.

also: what physical experiments would you use to distinguish dualism from monism?

interaction

We can ask how mental and physical states interact; this question is related to the ontology, but not 1:1

interactionism

epiphenomenalism

parallelism

bundle dualism

property dualism

substance dualism

basic issue

dualism OR the mind-body problem

states

How do mental states relate to physical states?

If substance or property dualism are true, then AI cannot work the way we are approaching it, since we haven't put in the right "substances".
