Geulincx



Arnold, 1624?–69, Belgian philosopher.
Historical Examples

While Descartes called the union of mind and matter a conjunction through power, Geulincx named it a miracle.
A History of Philosophy in Epitome Albert Schwegler

Whereas Descartes made the union between them a violent collocation, Geulincx practically called it a miracle.
Encyclopaedia Britannica, 11th Edition, Volume 11, Slice 8 Various

We see from this that Geulincx has carried to its limit the dualistic basis of Descartes.
A History of Philosophy in Epitome Albert Schwegler

According to Geulincx neither the soul works immediately upon the body, nor the body immediately upon the soul.
A History of Philosophy in Epitome Albert Schwegler

Once more God intervenes to solve the difficulty, but after a fashion much less crude than the miraculous apparatus of Geulincx.
History of Modern Philosophy Alfred William Benn
