Homework Help: Psychology

Posted by Lilly on Friday, September 14, 2012 at 11:16am.

Given your knowledge of dualism, choose the best interpretation of presence of dualism in this excerpt from an Emily Dickinson poem:

The brain is wider than the sky,
For, put them side by side,
The one the other will include
With ease, and you beside.

A.The poem suggests that the person’s physical body is connected to the brain and the sky.

B.Dualism is not present at all in this poem.

C.The poem suggests that the brain and the sky work together.

D By placing the “you” beside the brain, the poem suggests that the physical person is separate and distinct from the mental capacities of the brain.

Thinking the answer is D. But it could also be B, not 100% sure. Thanks for the help!
