Whilst philosophers like Spinoza and Liebnitz came up with creative attempts around the mind-body dualism, many of Descartes's later successors simply dropped the concept of spirit or mind altogether, and hence philosophical materialism and naive physicalism was born. With the rise of logical positivism and analytical p[hilsoophy, the fall of metaphysics, and the inability of rational-objectivist thought to solve the mind-body conundrum, Cartesian dualism fell totally out of favour in mainstream academia.

Cartesian dualism was formulated by Rene Descartes in his book

So yes, Cartesian Dualism is still very outlandish post-Darwin.

Quadontology argues that there is not a simple duality but rather four distinct polarities or gradations (ontoclines) of being, each with a "yin" (matter" so to speak) and a "yang") ("spirit" polarity. In Cartesian dualism the "Yang" polarity of three of the parameters are confused and jumbled together. This constitutes the mind or spirit member of the duality. However as far as everyday physical mundane reality goes, the "Yin" polarity of these three parameters do indeed merge, in what is usually considered "physical reality". This constitutes the "matter" or "body" element. There is also no "duality" between the two polarities of each ontological axis, simply a sequence or gradation.

Derek Matravers introduces Descartes and Dualism.

Although much ado has been made in the cognitive sciences over Cartesian dualism, what has until recently been unquestioned in Descartes and both his materialist (Locke, Hobbes) and idealist contemporaries (Berkeley, Kant) is their ontology.

Cartesian dualism is René Descartes's concept of dualism, dealing with the dual existence of man.
The quadontological approach to Cartesian dualism is rather different. This is shown on the left.

Though no longer quite the Cartesian dualism, ..

Let us look at the implications of this CartesianDualism. 1) Human bodies are in space and are subject toall the forces of mechanical laws that govern all other bodies. Minds, however, are not in space, nor arethey subject to mechanical laws. 2) The operations of the bodily life is as mucha public affair as with trees, stars, etc. (in principle). But theoperations / workings of one's mind are private from external observers. 3) There is no direct causal connection between two minds as there may bebetween two bodies. However, how Iaffect you must be by thebody. 4) Minds are composed of different'stuff' (substance); bodies are composed of physical matter.

Moral: Cartesian Dualism isn’t quite so outlandish and conceptually problematic as tends to be supposed.

Cartesian Dualism - New Dualism Archive

There is surprisingly little known about affect in science education. Despite periodic forays into monitoring students’ attitudes-toward-science, the effect of affect is too often overlooked. Beyond Cartesian Dualism gathers together contemporary theorizing in this axiomatic area. In fourteen chapters, senior scholars of international standing use their knowledge of the literature and empirical data to model the relationship between cognition and affect in science education. Their revealing discussions are grounded in a broad range of educational contexts including school classrooms, universities, science centres, travelling exhibits and refugee camps, and explore an array of far reaching questions. What is known about science teachers’ and students’ emotions? How do emotions mediate and moderate instruction? How might science education promote psychological resilience? How might educators engage affect as a way of challenging existing inequalities and practices?

The Scientific perception based in Newtonian Physics and Cartesian Dualism lead to the development of our current world Economic Theories:

The Problem of Cartesian Dualism

Please join us for a gallery talk at THE MISSION with Regina and John Murphy, who will discuss , a site-responsive exhibition at the SUB-MISSION that scrutinizes the incorporation of pseudo-science into theological practices while disputing the Cartesian duality of the physical and spiritual enshrined in Western culture.
