Unsnarling the World-knot
Consciousness, Freedom, and the Mind-body ProblemeBook - 1998
The mind-body problem, which Schopenhauer called the world-knot, has been a central problem for philosophy since the time of Descartes. Among realists - those who accept the reality of the physical world - the two dominant approaches have been dualism and materialism, but there is a growing consensus that, if we are ever to understand how mind and body are related, a radically new approach is required.
