Say I see my image behind the mirror (I have written behind instead

you describe this phenomenon by means of res cogitans and res

Hi Evgenii,

I would not, and neither Pratt, use the notion of substance as did
Descartes. Pratt explains himself well:

...


The duality between mind in body is defined in terms of the relation
 that is known in mathematics to exist between Boolean algebras and
certain topological spaces. Pratt presents a step-wise variational
calculus to model both body -body and mind-mind interactions.


How would Pratt describe the phenomenon of the image behind the mirror in his representation?

Evgenii

Hi Evgenii,

The image in the mirror is a simple transformation of coordinates, but Pratt is not considering that aspect.
