"Cartesian mind-body dualism" Whether the mind and body are the same.

Updated: May 29, 2022

The discussion of the mind seems to start here.

"Theorized by major philosophical writings from early on, such as Plato's Phaedo (4th century BC) and Thomas Aquinas's Summa Theologica (1265-74), the basic Christian book on the soul. It had been."

In coaching, in the same sense as the consciousness, we are doing here,

It uses the mind, brain, internal representation, and brief system.

The French philosopher René Descartes (156- It seems that it was 1650).

"Neurons that fire at the same time strengthen their connection to each other."

His insight, which considers memory to correspond to the selective enhancement of neuronal pathways, foresaw modern theories that learning depends on changes in brain connections.

Why does Descartes affirm the existence of an immaterial soul?

I think it's because he realized that he couldn't come up with a materialistic answer to the higher abilities of the human mind in the mechanical model.

Note) Even now that AI has begun to be used, it has not been recognized in the same way as human intelligence.

  • Ability to express thoughts using words

  • Flexible reasoning ability

Descartes's question of materialism is still valid today.

How can a machine like a brain express itself in a complex language and reflect on its state of mind?

The discipline that claims to be the science of cognitive science and consciousness needs to clarify these critical questions.
