Abstract:

The primary aim of this study is to dissolve the mind-body problem. It shows how the 'problem' separates into two distinct sets of issues, concerning ontology on the one hand, and explanation on the other, and argues that explanation - whether or not human behaviour can be explained in physical terms - is the more crucial. The author contends that a functionalist methodology in psychology and neurophysiology will prove adequate to explain human behaviour. Defence of this thesis requires: an examination of the mental/physical dichotomy, and its rejection in favour of a distinction between psycho.
