Property dualism: In contrast to classical dualism, which assumes two substances, the material and the mental substance (res extensa and res cogitans), the property dualism assumes two kinds of properties, the material and the spiritual, that are attributed to a single entity - the respective subject. See also dualism, monism, qualia, subjectivity, identity theory, properties, attribution.

Chalmers I 130
Property Dualism/SearleVsProperty Dualism/SearleVsChalmers: Searle (1992) has a similar view as I do, but denies that this is a property dualism. Rather, the ontological status of consciousness is the same as that of physical properties, such as being liquid. This is not a mere terminological difference to my dualism. In Searle, basal physical facts do not cause the higher level ones, they constitute them. Constitution is a much closer relationship than causation. (FN 2/chapter 5).
