  Article:   MIND AND BODY IN PERFORMANCE: REAL OR FAKE DUALISM? PERFORMING ARTS IN THE LAST CENTURY CORRELATED TO THE MAIN PHILOSOPHIES OF MIND.

Authors:  ALEXANDRA SOFONEA.
 
       
         
  Abstract:  Both perspectives on the mind-body connection, dualistic one and the one suggesting unity, have deep roots in the universal culture. Each era, with its major trends in philosophy, science and religion, has brought to attention different elements sustaining one view or the other.
This paper presents a correlation between various performing methods of the last century and the corresponding philosophies of mind that best fit their views. This puts performing and training methods into a wider perspective which is much needed today. What we find out is that any creative activity has very much to do with self-development and spiritual-growth and therefore has to be carefully chosen to both suit and complete the disposition of the person practicing it.

Keywords: performance, dualism, monism, philosophy of mind.
