Has Descartes provided an adequate solution to the mind-body problem? Please explain and critically evaluate his substance dualist account. In your paper, you should 1)provide a thesis that states whether you think Descartes has provided an adequate solution and briefly summarizes why/why not; 2) explain the mind-body problem and Descartes’ solution; 3) critically discuss what you regard as the two strongest objections to his account. .
Some possible questions you may want to consider as you complete your critical discussion include:
What are some of the central criticisms that Gilbert Ryle and others have raised against Cartesian substance dualism?
Why does Ryle think that Descartes has made a category mistake?
Why does Descartes have trouble explaining how the mind and body causally interact?
Is there any way that Descartes can reasonably respond these objections, and if so, how?
