Terminology Tuesday: Materialism
The view that only material objects exist. Materialism is sometimes used as synonymous with physicalism, but some thinkers distinguish the two by allowing that physicalism holds that only matter and energy exist. Some materialists define their view in terms of science and claim that ultimate reality consists of whatever particles or entities are discovered by physicists. See also: eliminative materialism; nonreductive materialism.
