about this story

Long time ago, there was a boy who named Gilbert Ryle. In the year 1949 Gilbert was wondering about life and came across a book entitled "Cartesian Dualism" by Rene Descartes. In this book it talked about how the self is composed of two which is the mind and the body. It also talked about how the mind and body contrast each other. While reading, a thought came across Gilbert's mind, he asked himself how can they both be different.
Many days have passed Gilbert Ryle still wondered about the thought. He did researches and ended up making a book about it. He named his book "The Concept of the Mind" he argued in his book that Descarte's theory was a category mistake. Gilbert claimed that the immaterial mind and the material body casually interacts with each other. While doing his research about this he has ended up with this theory that the mind and body is connected with each other, because as he has observed the behavior of people, behaviorism was the main contribution in his theory.
