ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHIES 2 Calef, Scott. "Dualism and Mind." Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy . Web. 01 Feb. 2017. Summary: This article presents one of Descartes’s in-depth legacies of the distinctness of the mind from the body. This article covers various arguments that Descartes present concerning the mind-body-dualism. In this article, Descartes refers to the mind as the thinking thing which is utterly different from the body which he calls an extended non- thinking thing. This article explores the separateness of the mind from the body as well as Descartes’s response to these issue through his remarks on how the mind is united with the body to make a human being. This article is important in my study of the mind-body- dualism because it addresses various issues that arise due to the misconception of Descartes’ real distinction theory and how the appropriate understanding of this dualism would solve this problem. It is essential to note that “real distinction” is a term that refers to the distinction between two or more substances (Calef, Scott qtd from Principles , part I, section 60) Paraphrase: what argue that the body could exist without the body and vice versa? For Descartes, the payoff to this would be the religious aspect as it provides a reasonable basis for the immortality of the soul, and the scientifically inclined, for the total absence of the mentality from the nature of physical things is key to creating a leeway for Descartes new version of mechanistic physics (Clef, Scott, p. 3). Direct quotation : one of the Descartes’ arguments presented in this article is from the second meditation where Descartes argues that “…he is nothing but a thinking thing or

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
