. Plato pointed out that although Parmenides maintains the unity of existence, he however ends up with a dualism, namely the idea of unity and the idea of existence (26).
The other thesis in Huang's book with which I am inclined to disagree--or at least about which I wish to raise a serious doubt--is the supposed total monism
of the Neo-Confucians and of today's New Confucians as well.
Space constraints preclude me from discussing all the essays in detail, but those that stood out to me included Christopher Tilmouths essay, which takes up recent work on inter-subjectivity to show how this understanding of early modern selfhood helps us read accounts of the passions more accurately; Russ Leo's, on Spinoza; Cummings's 'Donne's Passions: Emotion, Agency and Language'; Felicity Greens essay on Montaigne and emotion; Katherine Fletcher on how Milton's monism

Biblical Theology ebbed in the 1970s as it became apparent that the Bible is far too eclectic to be reduced to a theological monism
. Moreover, influences from postmodern thinking brought about the realization that the Bible is never read objectively but always is informed by the contemporary context of those who read and interpret it.
These chapters not surprisingly do not cover unified monism

If we simply debunk that primary non-ideal conceivability implies standard epistemic possibility, as Chalmers argues, then this debunking will, in turn, have consequences for the strong arguments by Chalmers against physicalist versions of monism
