ABSTRACT
A definition of the psychological term, epiphenomenalism, is presented. It refers to the philosophical argument that only physical material being is reality, while other phenomena like the mind, are of no relevance. The term was coined by U.S. psychologist Orval Hobart Mowrer. The concept was closely associated with behaviourism.
