The central question in the Mind-Body Problem is whether the Mind and Body exist separately (Dualism) or if they are of the same material substance (Materialistic Monism) or non-material (Idealistic Monism). The crucial question in Dualism is how does the non-material Mind interact with the Material Body. What is your solution to the Mind-Body Problem? If your solution is dualistic, what is your solution to the problem of Mind-Body interaction? Refer to and cite information from the unit readings and links to support your premises.
