Jackson (1875, cited in Marx 1967) declared himself opposed to the theory of mind-brain identity. It is clear from Jackson's writing that he was in the fIrst instance an ontological dualist but was prepared to fall back on a merely methodological dualism should the identity theory prove to be correct. The doctrine I hold is this: fIrst, that states of consciousness (or, synonymously, states of mind) are utterly different from nervous states; second, that the two things occur together - that for every mental state there is a correlative nervous state; third, that, although the two things occur in parallelism, there is no interference of one from the other.
They point toward the impact of the body upon the mind. Wallace next moves on to Freud's 'Preface to the translation of Bernheim's Suggestion' (1888d), a document which discusses rival psychological and physiological accounts of the nature of suggestion. Freud's solution to this problem is that suggestion involves both 'psychical' and 'physiological' components (cortical and subcortical regions of the central nervous system). Whereas Wallace takes these remarks to reflect an ontological materialism, they can equally be understood as referring to the neural causes of hypnotic events, and therefore as compatible with interactionism and epiphenominalism.
Notwithstanding these and other criticisms, substance dualism (in its interactionist and paralielist forms) had been the dominant approach to the mind-body problem for three centuries. Dualism established separate domains for body and mind and allowed the science of physiology to develop without posing any challenge to religious beliefs about the nature of the soul. However, by the second half of the nineteenth century, the traditional forms of dualism were becoming increasingly difficult to sustain coherently.
