Mind-Body Dualism

In psychology, the idea that the mind and the body are separate entities is referred to as mind-body dualism. The debate is over how much separation there is between the mind and the body. From this perspective, the mind controls the  body. Occasionally when the body does control the mind, we often lose our better judgment. This separation of mind and body allows for the idea of a soul that survives a bodily death.
