doctrine of pre-established harmony

<philosophy of mind, ontology> a view originated by G. W. Leibniz whereby:

1) the mental and the material comprise two different kinds of substance;

2) neither has any direct causal effect on the other and;

3) the coincidence between mental and material events is due to both substances being created to act in concert even though there is no post-creation interaction between the two.

See dualism, occasionalism, parallelism
