Hence, there must be a connection that binds within a mind and a body of a person, and mind and body must be complete with each other. Besides that, if mind and body aren’t related just as what parallelism said, we can just live in this world without a body. The body basically is an extended thing.

METAPHYSICS Metaphysics is defined as the study of ultimate reality, what used to be called in undergraduate courses, "the really real". The problem arises, however, that the question of ultimate reality assumes that we are able to study it, to perceive it.

The Contenders:How do the mind and body worktogether. Interactionism – minds and bodies are separate, but they both interact with one another. Body events cause mental events and mental events cause bodily events. Epiphenomenalism – mind is a byproduct of the body and its workings. Spinoza: Psychophysical Parallelism.

Summary. Spinoza states that the causal orders found in the attributes of thought and extension are "one and the same.". Hence the common description of Spinoza as endorsing psycho-physical parallelism, or the thesis that the mental and physical realms are isomorphic. Start studying Metaphysics.

In the philosophy of mind, dualism is the theory that the mental and the physical—or mind and body or mind and brain—are, in some sense, radically different kinds of thing.

Because common sense tells us that there are physical bodies, and because there is intellectual pressure towards producing a unified view of the world, one could say.

For the philosophy of mind, psychophysical parallelism is the theory that mental and bodily events are perfectly coordinated, without any causal interaction between them.

As such, it affirms the correlation of mental and bodily events, but denies a direct cause and effect relation between mind and body. This coordination of mental and bodily events has been postulated to occur.

Page - The mind being, as I have declared, furnished with a great number of the simple ideas conveyed in by the senses, as they are found in exterior things, or by reflection on its own operations, takes notice also, that a certain number of these simple ideas go constantly together; which being presumed to belong to one thing, and words being suited to common.

Later, many other topics came to be included under the heading ‘metaphysics.’ The set of problems that now make up the subject matter of metaphysics is extremely diverse. Parallelism, or psychophysical parallelism (meaning that mind and body are parallel) is a form of dualism which denies any interaction between mind and body.

Parallelism is a difficult position to hold, since it does little to account for the fact that the brain and mind seem to regularly interact, and that changes in one appear to affect the other.

Philosophy of mind is a branch of philosophy that studies the ontology and nature of the mind and its relationship with the body. The mind–body problem is a paradigm issue in philosophy of mind, although other issues are addressed, such as the hard problem of consciousness, and the nature of particular mental states.

Aspects of the mind that are studied include mental events. Della Rocca concentrates on two problems crucial to Spinoza 's philosophy of mind: the requirements for having a thought about a particular object, and the problem of the mind's relation to the body.

He contends that for Spinoza these two problems are linked and thus part of a systematic philosophy of mind. View text chunked by: book: section; Table of Contents: book 1 book 2.

His own unique view, however, is that both mind and body are attributes of God, such that there can be no body which is not accompanied by a mind, and vice versa. Every individual mind has to have a bodily object to which it is related, and every bodily object must be.

Thus, Spinoza is an extreme monist, for whom "Whatever is, is in god." Every mind and every body, every thought and every movement, all are nothing more than aspects of the one true being.

Thus, god is an extended as well as a thinking substance. Finally, god is perfectly free on Spinoza's definition. Of course it would be incorrect to suppose.

In his book, also entitled Spinoza's Metaphysics, Curley argued that the relation between Spinoza's God and finite things is best understood not according to a substance/property model, but as something akin to the relation between laws of nature and particular facts.

Melamed argues this leads to several untoward consequences, including. Metaphysics: Renaissance to the Present Metaphysics, in its most basic sense, is an account of what exists.

It may include accounts of what sorts of things exist; of what really exists as opposed to what merely appears to exist; of what exists necessarily rather than by accident; of what it is that underlies everything else; or of the most general laws governing existing things.Metaphysics is the branch of philosophy that examines the fundamental nature of reality, including the relationship between mind and matter, between substance and attribute, and between potentiality and actuality.
