... my today’s self perpetually slips out of any hold of it that I may try to take.
Gilbert Ryle, "The Concept of Mind", p. 196.
When two terms belong to the same category, it is proper to construct conjunctive propositions embodying them. Thus a purchaser may say that he bought a left-hand glove and a right- hand glove, but not that he bought a left-hand glove, a right- hand glove, and a pair of gloves. ‘She came home in a flood of tears and a sedan-chair’ is a well known joke based on the absurdity of conjoining terms of different types. Now the dogma of the Ghost in the Machine does just this. It maintains that there exist both bodies and minds.
