In philosophy of mind, epiphenomenalism, also known as 'Type-E
Dualism', is a view according to which some or all mental states
are mere epiphenomena (side-effects or by- products) of physical
states of the world. Thus, epiphenomenalism denies that the mind
(as in its states, not its processing) has any influence on the
body or any other part of the physical world: while mental states
are caused by physical states, mental states do not have any
influence on physical states. Some versions of epiphenomenalism
claim that all mental states are inert, while others claim that
only some mental states are inert. The latter version often claims
that only those types of mental states that are especially
difficult to account for scientifically are epiphenomenal, such as
qualitative mental states (e.g., the sensation of pain).
