On the Nature of Psychophysical Correlations
This article proposes a strategy of decision based on Bell-type experimental tests for the long-standing question about the nature of psychophysical correlations. We will first brie y discuss the main traditional answers to this question and some more recent suggestions developed within the framework of a generalized quantum theory. The proposed strategy of decision is developed within the full formalism of (generalized) quantum theory with continuous observables. It appeals to a signaling condition in order to test the possible existence of a direct, causal 'interaction' between bodily and mental processes, to a Bell-type condition in order to test the (non-)local nature of psychophysical correlations, and to a general method for implementing the essential notion of complementary observables in the psychosomatic domain.
