We evolve writing when it became important. Complex Soviet and trade. Important to record. The Greek philosophers Plato : mind body dualism. Mind is separate from the body. Dualism as immortality of the soul. Eternal being passed to another place after death. Body was a vessel that soul lived in so it can move though environment. Body only sig to carry soul. Aristotle : vital fluids. Fluids in body heath is from balance in fluids. Imbalance leads to illness and disease. Associations. How u hold things together. Link ideas in mind. Occur together or have similarity are hooked together more. The renaissance (get from web CT) no reason to inquire in nature. Then realization that ppl need to start thinking because no one is coming with answers. Descartes : dualism- interactions. Question idea that mind and soul run body. Too many things that happen in body that soul has no control over. Maybe body isn't a vessil, has its own operating system. Body also living. Physiology- perception and ideas come from sense organs (eyes) body plays a role in perception. Mind looses ground. Start to subjectivity of perception there is a subjectivity to all perception.
