Are the Mind and Body Two Distinct Substances?
September's topic will be conducted by Brother Doyle Slack on a study of Freemasonry: Are the Mind and Body Two Distinct Substances? After a short lecture, a discussion and debate by the group will follow. Rene Descartes posited that the mind and the body of a person are separate but united, constantly influencing each other. Later scientists and philosophers, such as Gilbert Ryle, believed that the body and its activities are what comprise the mind. With several different theories of the nature of the Mind and Body, it is important for Freemasons to determine where their thoughts lay because the Mason is taught to work to use his mind to control his bodies actions - but is this truly possible? Mission Statement The Masonic Philosophical Society embraces the concept of learning, not for school, but for life, and believes that all men, who seek it, deserve access to continued education. We further embrace the concept of a community environment, where ideas can be shared and debated in an open forum. From the seven liberal arts to the arcane, we seek to gain and to share the knowledge that is the legacy of mankind.
