another triumph for substance dualism!

In the philosophy of mind, the substance dualist position claims that mind and matter are fundamentally different, which for most substance dualists means that mind is not material: "We're not quite sure what mind might be, but it ain't matter."

Which, of course, explains how this is possible, right?

Sorry, but I'm a physicalist. Philosophers can say what they will about the immateriality of mind, but I've yet to discover a reason to take them seriously.
