From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Interactionism is the theory in the philosophy of mind which holds that, matter and mind being distinct and independent, that they exert causual effects on one another. As such, it is a type of dualism. It can be distinguished from competing dualist theories of epiphenomenalism (which admits causation, but views it as unidirectional rather than bidirectional), pre-established harmony and occasionalism (which both deny causation, while seeking to explain the appearance of causation by other means).
