We cannot call Searle's view dualism because 1) he denies the existence of a 
second non-physical mental substance, a substance asserted by Cartesian 
dualists, and 2) he denies the existence of non-physical properties of matter, 
properties asserted by property dualists. Moreover his philosophy in no way 
depends on these dualistic ideas.
