Neutral monism

Neutral monism is the philosophical view that mental events and physical events are both to be reduced (see reduction) to aspects of some neutral stuff, which stuff considered by itself is neither physical nor mental.

Neutral monism was introduced by the famous 17th century Dutch philosopher, Baruch Spinoza, and a version of it was recently revived by American philosopher Donald Davidson.
