For the WHO Health is a state of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well being and not merely the absence of disease of infirmity. Wellness is a similar term to health but usually refers to being physically and mentally sound or balanced.

Question by Ami: What’s the difference between religion and spirituality?
I should state that I know what religion is, but I do not get how spirituality does not go hand in hand with religion. The two seem like compliments.

Please explain in detail.

Question by Atheist Intellect: What is the difference between a good religion and a bad religion?
It should be obvious that I think all religions are wrong. I don’t, however think that religion is bad in all respects. It can give people a moral base and give people direction in life. For the most part however, I believe that things that aren’t or can’t be proven should be set aside until proven. I believe that filling people’s heads with unprovable theories is generally a poor way to deal with problems.
What does everyone think makes a particular religion more worthy of being accepted in society than another?

Question by FC 3692230: What problem arise for Descartes as a result of the distinction he draws between mind and body?
Do you believe this problem can be solved? Why or why not?
If it is necessary for Descartes that the mind and body operate according to distinct set of laws, then what is the overarching set of laws that allows the two to interact?
Just asking for your opinion, but tell me a complete opinion, please

Answer by fLuXeDuP
For Descartes, body and mind are two completely different substances. Body is extended, physical, material, while mind is everything that the body is not.

One central problem associated with Cartesian philosophy, and which carries over into other modern thinkers like Hume, Kant, Berkeley, etc., is how two completely different substances can have a relationship with each other. For Descartes, the mind has no causal effect on the body, nor does the body have any causal effect on the mind.

The problem with Descartes’s approach is that he traps subjectivity inside of itself—the mind is better known than the outside world, and it is not clear how the “inside” can have any access at all to the “outside” world.

According to Descartes, the “pineal gland” in the brain explains the connection between the body and the mind. However, this is not a satisfactory solution since it is not clear how a physical thing can be a bridge between the physical body and the immaterial mind.

One way to get around the mind-body dualism is to argue that it relies on a false understanding of consciousness. Edmund Husserl, who is known as the father of a movement called “phenomenology,” argues that consciousness has immediate access to the outside world by virtue of its very structure. Consciousness is essentially “consciousness of…”; consciousness is “intentional” (this has nothing to do with having intentions in the usual sense of the will to choose). To think is essentially to think of something outside of oneself; consciousness for Husserl is by definition in an immediate relationship with the world. So, according to Husserl the mind-body dualism is only a problem if you think that consciousness is a sphere closed upon itself. If we accept that consciousness is from the start “intentional”, then the mind-body dualism ceases to be a problem.

Numerous other solutions have been provided (look up Gilbert Ryle, for instance), but this is the one that seems to make the most sense to me.

Question by SC: What is the education requirement difference between a neuropsychologist and psychologist?
I was wondering, what is the difference between the education needed to become a neuropsychologist vs. a psychologist? I know there is obviously a difference, and I’d lie to know how much more education one needs to be a neuropsychologist. Are there more science-based classes that need to be taken? I want to be a neuropsychologist, but I don’t know how much more I would have to do in school. If it’s as much as a doctor, then I definately won’t. Thanks so much.

Best answer:

Answer by learning curve
no, it’s the same as a psychologist (PhD or PsyD) but with specialized training in neuropsychology. if you can find a PhD program in neuropsychology, so much the better. otherwise a post doctoral fellowship with a neuropsychologist supervising will suffice. good luck!

in grad school, if you are in a regular clinical (i.e. not a neuropsych) program, you may want to focus more classes in neuroanatomy, physiology, etc. rather than the classes oriented more toward counseling.
