Chiari G. & Nuzzo M. L. (1988) Embodied minds over interacting bodies: A constructivist perspective on the mind-body problem. The Irish Journal of Psychology 9(1): 91–100. Fulltext at
The consideration of the relation of mutual specification between a distinguished whole and the parts distinguished in it, and of their specification of two nonintersecting phenomenal domains, constitute the starting point for a radical constructivist redefinition of the ‘mind-body problem’ (MBP), where the opposition between mind and body turns into a relation of complementarity between components of a larger (social, ecological) whole. The implications as to the traditional views on the MBP are outlined, stressing in particular the overcoming of the holism/reductionism and parallelism/interactionism dualities.
