Open peer commentary on the article “Why Josef Mitterer’s Non-Dualism Is Inconsistent” by Stefan Weber. Abstract: Philosophical approaches can be criticized by a semantic analysis of the logical course of their argumentation or by a pragmatic analysis of their originator’s intention and premises and of the approach’s practical effects. In this case, the target article is itself a critique of a philosophical approach, namely of non-dualism. I will focus on the pragmatic aspects of the critique, which are addressed in the concluding paragraphs. None of the practical consequences Weber imputes to non-dualism is justified.
