This introductory chapter highlights the main theses defended in the book, beginning with those of Part II, and provides a brief overview of each chapter. It is made clear that the dualistic philosophy of mind defended in Part I can be accepted independently of the theory of rational action developed in Part II, but that the latter presupposes the truth of the former.

Keywords:   dualistic philosophy of mind, rational action, causation, reasons
