    And good thing, too, as common sense has little, if anything, to do with

    But, making the leap from that to this -

    "there is no mind-body problem, no question about reduction of the
    mental to the physical, or even unification of the two domains."

    - seems to rocket across an abyss with specious ease, if not be somewhat
    non sequitur, since reducing the mind-body problem to new and more
    correct views of matter would seem to unify the domains handily.
