Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

 
Panpsychism: Panpsychism is a collective term for the theories, which assume an animacy of all objects. It is assumed that this animacy is located in things from the very beginning of the universe. Panpsychism is monistic, i.e. it denies a separation of mental and material things. Modern forms of panpsychism do not assume fully developed mental qualities of the objects, but rather preliminary stages of the mental. See also dualism, property dualism, monism, materialism, physicalism, identity theory.
