Abstract
I argue that property dualists cannot hold that minds are physical substances. The focus of my discussion is a property dualism that takes qualia to be sui generis features of reality
Keywords Property dualism  David Chalmers  Jaegwon Kim  Qualia  Substance dualism  Substance  Mind  Non-reductive physicalism  Consciousness  Bundle theory  Substratum theory  Physicalism  Materialism
