Interactionism Philosophy of Mind

Interactionism is the theory in the philosophy of mind which holds that matter and mind, being two distinct and independent things, exert causal effects on one another. As such, it is a type of dualism. Interactionism can be distinguished from competing dualist theories of epiphenomenalism (which admits causation, but views causation as unidirectional rather than bidirectional), pre-established harmony, and occasionalism (which both deny causation, while seeking to explain the appearance of causation by other means).
