Consciousness: Egnor on dualism: another example (General)

DAVID: By the way Egnor believes in a soul, which is why I titled this thread as I did.

dhw: There is nothing in the article to promote the concept of a soul. If he meant it to do so, he has shot himself in the foot.

DAVID: You misunderstand. Egnor is not a part of this article but he bases his belief in a soul based on this kind of medical case:

You are right. I didn’t realize he had nothing to do with the article. So why on earth did you call this thread “Egnor on dualism: another example”? Now we know it's an article by someone called Alison George, has nothing to do with Egnor, and nothing to do with dualism. Interesting article, though, which will be welcomed by non-Egnorians as an example of materialism.
