Example text

However, as we shall argue later, this argument is usually taken to exclude any necessary and symmetrical link between mental and physical property types, which suggests that there is something more to mental properties than being only configurations of physical properties. In a nutshell, given that two individuals can be identical from the psychological point of view while being different from the physical point of view, the multiple realization argument suggests prima facie that the referents of psychological descriptions are not something physical and thereby that mental property tokens are ontologically distinct from physical property tokens.

But this mental property token itself does not cause any further effect. All the causal work occurs on the physical level: my desire of getting a glass of fresh water is the result of an impulse generated within my body that brings about changes in the brain, which in turn brings about the behavioural pattern consisting in going to get the bottle of beer. The mental property tokens are, so to speak, just along for the ride: they have no kind of effect. The classical metaphor is the case of the temporal parts of the shadow of a moving car.

The very idea of causal overdetermination is present in our discourse not because of rooted and ancient social habits, nor because of scientific progress, but is given, rather, as an abstract theoretical possibility arising from the argument that a property token could have more that one lone complete cause. The paradigmatic case of causal overdetermination is the situation in which an event is causally determined by more than one complete cause. The classical illustration is that of two hunters shooting a deer in the heart at the same time.
