What is Plato’s dualism in philosophy?
As a result, Plato’s dualism is more than just a philosophical idea in the philosophy of mind; it is also an intrinsic aspect of his entire metaphysics. One difficulty with Plato’s dualism was that, while he refers to the soul as being imprisoned in the body, he does not provide a clear description of what links a specific soul to a particular body in his dialogues.
Can there be dualism without a body?
- There is an argument for dualism that has its origins in Descartes’ Meditation VI and is known as the modal argument for dualism.
- To put it another way, one may say: It is conceivable that a person’s mind may live independently of his or her physical body.
