A diagram from Odhams Press’s 1955 The Wonderful Story of You: How Your Body Works, How Your Mind Works.
Mind a mere by-product of body
Body a mere precipitate or condensation of mind
Mind and body on parallel lines, but no connection between them whatever
|TWO ASPECT THEORY
Mind and body two aspects of the same reality
Body alone exists. Consciousness is merely a physiological process
Mental processes alone exist
The view of Common Sense. Mind and body both exist and act and react one with the other
“Obviously mind and body influence each other to a very great extent, and many theories have been put forward to explain how they are related. Some of the most important of these theories are illustrated in diagram form above” (p197).
