This paper presents some aspects of the nomiosic theory of mind, which adopts a dual antireductionist monism. According to this theory the mind is considered as a specific part of the brain’s processes that is formed by mental configurations, which are different from cerebral configurations. Mental configurations cannot be explained by neurophysiological processes alone. The main characteristic of the mind is to generate meaning, and so the mind is at the same time inside the brain that formulated it and in any other mind that receives these meanings.
