Camp Statement

Property Dualism


Property Dualism (PD) is the idea that there is one set of natural or physical stuff which has two categorically different types of properties or ways to look at them. Property Dualism shares a belief about 'causal properties' and how such are the initial cause of any perception process, with Substance Dualism. It also similarly predicts that phenomenal qualities are a property of the final result of the perception process. The difference is, while substance dualism believes there is some non natural stuff, that has or is responsible for phenomenal qualities, we predict phenomenal qualities are a quality of some neural correlate in our brain.
