Sample text

Two years after 'Gehirn', Freud wrote in 'Psychical (or mental) treatment' (1890), that: Modem medicine, it is true, had reason enough for studying the indisputable connection between the body and the mind; but it never ceased to represent mental events as determined by physical ones and dependent on them. Thus stress was laid on the fact that intellectual functioning was conditional upon the presence of a normally developed and sufficiently nourished brain that any disease of that organ led to disturbances of intellectual functioning, that the introduction of toxic substances into the circulation could produce certain states of mental illness or - to descend to more trivial matters - that dreams could be modified by stimuli brought to bear upon a sleeper for experimental purposes.

Solms and Saling's parallelist case suffers from the same two defects32 as well as the fact that Freud describes the causal power of neural states to bring about mental states. We are thus left with Andersson's claim. However, Solms and Saling raise an objection against it, which requires consideration. 33 This passage can be interpreted in several different ways. Solms and Saling seem to take Freud to be asserting that material processes in one's central nervous system do not determine whether one is conscious or unconscious of a 'corresponding' mental token occurring in one's mind.

They point toward the impact of the body upon the mind. Wallace next moves on to Freud's 'Preface to the translation of Bernheim's Suggestion' (1888d), a document which discusses rival psychological and physiological accounts of the nature of suggestion. Freud's solution to this problem is that suggestion involves both 'psychical' and 'physiological' components (cortical and subcortical regions of the central nervous system). Whereas Wallace takes these remarks to reflect an ontological materialism, they can equally be understood as referring to the neural causes of hypnotic events, and therefore as compatible with interactionism and epiphenominalism.
