Hi Stephen P. King 

There no doubt are similarities, but IMHO dual-aspect is
conceptually headless.  Guillotined. Unable to explain Cs and mind.
Or if I may, God, for that matter. Hence materialists are
mostlhy atheists. 

The absolutely critical thing missing from dual-aspect 
monism is government: A president, congress, supreme 
court, all of that good stuff.

And a constitution.

Leibniz would say, "If there's no God, we'd have to invent him 
so that everything could function."

Hi Stephen P. King 
 
Leibniz's Idealism (LI)  differs from dual-aspect monism (DAM)
in that while both have corresponding domains of brain and mind, 
as I understand it, DAM is an overlay of brain and mind.

Hi Roger,

    LI is commesurate with DAM, IMHO. The distinction tht I draw is that the 
DAM that I am considering does not hide the details of interaction between 
monads. LI puts all of the explanation into a God given Pre-Established 
Harmony", what I am considering does not as it seeks to explicitly show an 
explanation of the interactions between minds (as bisimulations). The PEH of LI 
and Pratt's DAM's residuation via bisimulation become identical in the ultimate 
limit.


 
But  LI feautures mind in Ideal space in the form of monads, each of which is
like a homunculus, so that the Leibniz mind functionally includes the whole
human-- heart, mind, soul, and body- as a whole.  Thus intellect
and feeling and body are not separated by barriers, but can
act wholistically.  The textbook example is that in LI mind
can (although indirectly) influence body and body similarly the mind, 
with no logical problems such as arose from Descartes' dualism
of mind and body. Dual aspect monism, as did descartes,  simply ignores the
subvstance dualism of mind and body as irrelevant to the
progress of neuroscience.

    DAM defines "substance" as a set of "almost exact"endomorphisms between 
monads, nothing more.


 
This issue of cartesiabn dualism is what caused L to formulate
his monadic metaphysics. The monadic structure and the homunculus
substructure create an entirely different picture of how mind operates
and what it can do (nonlocality, clairvoyance, partial and individual 
clarity of communion with other minds and God, how intellect
can cause  dominion of one monad over another, the
governmebnt of the universe and mind by God, etc. for example)

    Sure! We see evidence of how this might be explained in quantum 
pseudo-telepathy.


 
And what self is, and how it participates in perception and action.
 
Pratt and the other theorists afre completely unawafre of this
fact that the universe is subjective.

    You might wish to not be so sure, but that is your choice to make. :-)

Hi Alberto,

     Oh my!

"...SCSPL reality embodies a dual-aspect monism..."

     Sound familiar? Nice to see that many others are independently 
discovering the same idea.
