Is property dualism better off than substance dualism?

Philosophical Studies 164 (2):533-542 (2013)
Abstract
It is widely thought that mind–body substance dualism is implausible at best, though mere “property” dualism is defensible and even flourishing. This paper argues that substance dualism is no less plausible than property dualism and even has two advantages over it.
