Cartesianism

Searle explains that the popular view about minds and bodies is what is called dualism: we think we have a mind and a body. Searle calls this view “Cartesianism” after Descartes, and begins to list problems associated with this view. On such problem is called the Problem of Other Minds. Explain what the problem of other minds is by offering an example, and how the hammer and thumb example attempts to refute this problem through an analogy. Why doesn’t the analogy work according to Searle? John Searle Audio Files
