I understand an interactionist believes that mind/body interact occasionally, such as pin pricks arm, you scream.
Or you think of something mental, making your stomach feel sick. (perhaps death)
My question is, how would an interactionist go about solving the mind/body problem.
Meaning, what would they state the connection is?
Where does it happen, how would the 'attempt' to solve it.. if unable to solve it?
Well,... hmm.... I guess this is the first I've ever heard of Interactionist. Did a search on google and found some stuff... It's not nice to answer questions with a question but here it goes...
...why would someone limit themselves with a title like 'Interactionist'? It's well known that there are a lot of titles out there for beliefs and based on the title you can form a synopsis of the persons beliefs. However, why would anyone have to possess the title and thus close their mind to further development of truth and knowledge?
Interactionism is a noun or adjective describing a belief system. ...Is someone stuck? If they are, we'll throw them a rope. How can one stop at a title and embrace a title that man has placed on man as an identifier of something? So I wouldn't know what else to say other than be yourself and grow and learn. You'll know truth one way or the other and if something is questionable or doesn't resonate with you, then listen.
