    Has Descartes' theory of mind-body dualism completely been debunked by modern Neuroscience?

    I'm not even sure we needed modern neuro-science to show it was a theory with too many problems. Neuro-science has simply taken away one of the 'gaps' otherwise used to shore it up: "if there's no separate mind, how does the body produce thoughts?".
