Re: What is the difference between property and entity?

Solipsism is non-physical monism. For monism there are two options kind of "everything is". For physicalists everything is physical, for nonphysicalists everything is nonphysical (mental?).

Re: What is the difference between property and entity?

If Information never exists directly in the physical world. Why do you think there is any difference between physical and mental properties? We can take phenomenological reduction and talk about things as they appear for us - humans. Everything else is thing-in-itself - not accessible for us in prin...

Re: What is the difference between property and entity?

The important thing is that to the dualist, the mental side is just as real as the physical.

Re: What is the difference between property and entity?

Ok, I finally understand. Correct me if I'm wrong. We can divide everything into parts (arbitrary). Each part can be labeled "entity" and properties are nothing but structural changes of that entity. Confusion rises only from folk psychology point of view. It seems that brain can generate something ...

What is the difference between property and entity?

The question is within context of analytic philosophy of mind. More precisely about emergence of consciousness, mind or any other non physical phenomenon. I'm confused because sometimes entity is referred as substance(material or non-material), so everything else is property of material/non-material...
