Beyond Dualism (Ivo Gurschler) [PDF]

According to John Dewey (1859–1952) the common source of all other dualisms is to consider mind and body as being separate, whereas the difference is actually rather one of degree and emphasis. Furthermore Dewey is not only convinced that it is actually necessary to do something about this relationship in order to »making it right«, but also that the method of F. M. Alexander (1869–1955) is the proper procedure to experience the continuity of mind and body in actual practice. This insistence on the value of a specific technique seems to be quite a remarkable exception in the common universe of (philosophical) discourse.
