For the neurologist, there is no such thing as the mind. There are certain activities of the brain endowed with consciousness that it is convenient to consider as mental activities. Since one expects to find a noun adjoined to an adjective, one supposes that there must be a mind expressing itself in a mental way. But the requirements of language and of logical thought are not always the same; demands of syntax may lead to errors in thinking.
