  • Randall L. Morrison


Every course on the history of psychology makes at least passing reference to the so-called mind-body problem and the philosophical debate that once raged over the interaction of the body and the soul. Dualism and the pseudoscientific notion that the pineal gland was the meeting point of the two separate entities are now viewed with curiosity and humor. It is unlikely that anyone who has had even a high school psychology course would question the fact that the mind is a biological phenomenon associated with chemical and electrical activity in the brain.
