|Title:||Descartes' dualism and contemporary dualism||Authors:||Wee, C.
|Issue Date:||2008||Citation:||Wee, C., Pelczar, M. (2008). Descartes' dualism and contemporary dualism. Southern Journal of Philosophy 46 (1) : 145-160. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||After drawing a distinction between two kinds of dualism - numerical dualism (defined in terms of identity) and modal dualism (defined in terms of supervenience) - we argue that Descartes is a numerical dualist, but not a modal dualist. Since most contemporary dualists advocate modal dualism, the relation of Descartes' views to the contemporary philosophy of mind are more complex than is commonly assumed.||Source Title:||Southern Journal of Philosophy||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/129408||ISSN:||00384283|
