    Abstract

    We review and analyse the approach to locality and to mind-body dualism proposed in the Many Minds Interpretation in the version given by David Albert and Barry Loewer (Albert and Loewer 1988). In particular, we investigate what kind of supervenience of the mind on the body is implied by Albert and Loewer’s Many Minds Interpretation, and how the interpretation of the related “mindless hulks” problem affects the issue of locality within this interpretation.
