ABSTRACT
A definition of the term "double aspect theory of mind" is presented. It states that mind and body or mental events and some cerebral events are two aspects of a single thing. The theory resembles Neutral Monism. When the body becomes privileged and usurps the function of the single underlying thing, the theory veers towards the identity theory of mind and body.
