Mind Body Problem I 120
Mind-body problem/Nagel: We have currently no conceptual means to even just imagine a solution - because causal explanations of natural science have a certain necessity that is missing here - SearleVsNagel: Science cannot explain why two bodies attract each other.

I 146f
Mind-body problem/Searle: causality alone is important: micro (physis) causes macro (mind) (from
bottom to top) - SearleVsSupervenience: this is superfluous - stability is causally supervenient on molecular structure, but this does not mean that it is epiphenomenal.

II 328f
Mind-body problem/Searle: mental states are both caused by the activities of the brain and realized in the structure of the brain (such as water/molecular structure) - There may be a causing and a realization of the same stuff, provided it is done on different levels.
