I shall argue that there is no contradiction between this title and what I have said about the correctness of the order of words in the overall title of the symposium, Brain and Mind. Self-reflective consciousness, as a manifestation of the human mind, requires simpler forms of consciousness or conscious awareness as a substratum for its functioning. The reverse is clearly not the case. In the Cartesian heyday animal experiments were performed without regard to the yelps of pain they produced; these were regarded as no more significant than the squeaking of metal parts in a badly-oiled machine.

Brazier: Hartley thought that the nerves vibrated, but the message that these vibrations carried went to the soul. If he isn’t a dualist we have to have a more elaborate definition. Bunge: One must always reckon that some people pay lip service in order not to be persecuted. Brazier: Yes, like Marshall Hall. Creutzfeldt: The history of science likes to trace the path of progress towards truth, the criterion for progress being our own presumed possession of truth. THE HISTORICAL BACKGROUND 33 Thus a monist may look down on those who assumed or still assume that there exist two different entities: the brain and the mind or soul.
