The issues raised by these questions are highly controversial, and agreed conclusions are lacking on almost every subject upon which we shall touch. 

Different groups of thinkers entertain different views, with regard to which, although there may be agreement within each group, it may be confidently asserted that no one group will be found to accept the conclusions of any other. 

It is indeed improbable that the true nature of mind and matter, and the truth about the way in which they interact will be known until the whole truth about everything is known. As the discovery of the whole truth about everything is highly improbable, and is, in any case, an extremely remote contingency, the problem of the relationship between mind and matter may, for all practical purposes, be regarded a insoluble.
