Theism, the Postmodernist Burial of Metaphysics, and Indian Mind-Body Dualism

Faith and Philosophy 26 (5):527-536 (2009)
Abstract
There is a post-modernist myth that metaphysics has always been an exclusively Western heritage. This article refutes such a view by reviewing the many centuries of debate between Indian mind-body dualists and champions of reductionist physicalism. It also suggests the relevance of the Indian dualistic arguments for contemporary discussions of the mind-body issue
