Mind-Body Problem in "The New Yorker"
Feb.12 issue (print version only): "Two Heads:A marriage devoted to the mind-body problem" by Larissa MacFarquhar.

(The article is mostly about Patricia and Paul Churchland, whom the author credits with helping persuade philosophers to pay attention to neuroscience.)

"The divide between those who, when forced to choose, will trust their instincts and those who will trust an argument that convinces them is at least as deep as the divide between mind-body agnostics and committed physicalists, and lines up roughly the same way."
