Transcendental Naturalism/TN/McGinn: Definition "scientific sentence": so we shall call a sentence whose meanings do not produce specific philosophical confusions, but which refers to puzzling objects.
Then we can say that the answer to the body-soul problem is constituted in a number of scientific sentences, which are not accessible to any human according to transcendental naturalism, or if they were conceived by a living creature, that would not trigger in them a feeling of a philosophical mystery.

  1. basic smallest elements "atoms".
  2. laws to their combination.
  3. The resulting complexes. (McGinn, formerly "CAlM" combinatorial atomism with lawlike mappings).
