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.

Idealist monism, the view that consciousness is the 'thing in itself' of which the body is a mere appearance, was also widely embraced. and type identity and allow for supervenient dependence of mental properties upon neurophysiological properties whilst retaining a notion of mental causation, were quite difficult to entertain in the nineteenth century. 8 The Romantic philosopher Schelling, for example, claimed that the structure of the mind was reflected in the structure of the brain. Schelling inspired Burdach to base his psychology on a neo-Spinozic dual-aspect monism (Leary, 1980).

And ... If all segments of the chain cross the threshold of consciousness, the psychical proc- ess is shaped in its simplest form.
