Physicalism (Moreland)

Worldview Physicalism: "everything that exists is nothing but a single spatio-temporal system which can be completely described in terms of some ideal form of physics. Matter/energy is all that exists." (P 236a)

Mind-Body Physicalism: There are no non-physical minds; there is no (non-physical) mental realm.

"If physicalism is true at the worldview level, then obviously, mind-body physicalism would follow" (P 236a)
