Mind-brain dualism

In philosophy, mind-brain dualism is a view that the brain and the mind are two distinct things or entities.

The concept of mind-brain dualism is a variant, so to speak, of French philosopher Rene Descartescirca 1620 mind-body problem, generally focusing on the relation between consciousness, neuroscience, and materialism. [1] Using more modern terms, one might make the distinction of mind-molecule (see: retinal molecule).

The following are related quotes:

“On the one hand I have a clear and distinct idea of myself, in so far as I am a thinking, non-extended thing; and on the other hand I have a distinct idea of body, in so far as this is simply an extended, non-thinking thing. And, accordingly, it is certain that I am really distinct from my body, and exist without it.”
— Rene Descartes (c.1610) (ΡΊ)
