Scientific Vision Of Lord Mahāvīra ► [06] Biological Issues In The Bh.S ► The View Of Psychology

Psychology also concedes the influence of body and mind on each other. The same question arises there whether body influences the sentient or the sentient influences the body. In modern psychology, the idea of the soul (sentient) is no longer important. In its place has come the notion of self or the 'center of interest'.[107] Often the problem is discussed under the title of mind-body relationship. The thing to be considered is, the nature of relation between the two. According to psychology, they influence each other and cannot be separated from the other. Body and the sentient principle cannot be accepted as absolutely independent. Their relation and mutual influence can be explained only by admitting their relative independence.
