mental events
The events of feeling, thinking, willing, and so on that make up the conscious life of an individual. The issue of whether mental events are identical with complex physical events, or whether such an identity even makes sense, is central to the mind–body problem . See also anomalous monism, physicalism, type-type identity theory.
