Mind Body Problem Diaz-Bone I 41
Mind Body Problem/James: James' psychology can be seen as an attempt to overcome the dualism of body and mind. Both are part of nature and the objective world.
       Even a complete discovery and explanation of brain activity cannot be equated with knowledge of consciousness.
The attempt to solve the mind body problem by overcoming the dualism is regarded as a failure for James, since a scientific explanation for free will cannot be achieved.
