ABSTRACT
A definition of the term "dualism" is presented. It refers to a thesis about body and mind. Dualism in contemporary context often focuses on properties while traditional dualism concerns questions about substances. A consequence of mind-body dualism is that because the mind and the body are distinct, the death of the body does not automatically entail the death of the mind.
