Open peer commentary on the article “Why Josef Mitterer’s Non-Dualism Is Inconsistent” by Stefan Weber. Abstract: Weber reads Mitterer’s non-dualism as a variant of linguistic idealism. This means confusing non-dualism with an ontological theory. The consequence of this interpretation is his critique that non-dualism is inconsistent. In my commentary I claim that as soon as the initial confusion is cleared up, Weber’s critique collapses.
