ABSTRACT
The article deals with one of the most important problems in modern philosophy: the difference between mental and physical realities. The success of naturalistic methodology has led to the introducing of a physicalists movement in the modern philosophy. The author considers weak and strong versions of physicalism in order to demonstrate that contemporary philosophy cannot eliminate the concept of mental reality.
