Although physicalism has been the dominant place in fresh paintings within the philosophy of brain, this dominance has now not avoided a small yet turning out to be variety of philosophers from arguing that physicalism is untenable for numerous purposes: either ontologically and epistemologically it can't lessen mentality to the area of the actual, and its makes an attempt to minimize subjectivity to objectivity have completely failed. The individuals to After Physicalism offer robust possible choices to the physicalist account of the human brain from a dualistic perspective and argue that the reductive and naturalistic paradigm in philosophy has misplaced its force.

10 In the (obviously fictitious) variant of Boswell’s anecdote, however, it does indeed seem that Johnson has succeeded in demonstrating that there is at least one concrete not mind-independently physical*, that is, nonphysical, entity, namely, the pain he feels in his naked foot when he strikes this foot against the large stone. This pain is certainly a concrete entity. Now suppose—for reductio—that it is also a physical entity. Hence it is a mind-independently physical* entity, and therefore a mind-independent entity.
That belief in materialism is not as well-founded—scientifically or philosophically—as materialist believers usually think it is. In fact, it is less well-founded than, say, Husserl’s belief in ontological idealism. Nevertheless, the hegemony of ontological idealism, which once seemed unshakable (see Boswell’s anecdote), is over. The current hegemony of materialism, which seems just as unshakable, will be over, too. It is to be hoped that the passing of the hegemony of materialism will not happen for reasons that are foreign to reason.
