S. C. Gibb holds that some mental events enable physical events to take place by acting as ‘double preventers’ which prevent other mental events from effecting change in the physical domain. She argues that this enables a dualist account of psychophysical interaction consistent with the causal relevance of mental events, their distinctness from physical events, the causal closure of the physical and the exclusion of systematic overdetermination. While accepting the causal powers metaphysic, this paper argues that: Closure is maintained only on the assumption of an implausible pre-ordained harmony between preventing and double-preventing mental events. Distinctness is preserved only at the cost of positing brute unexplained powers of mental and physical events to causally interact with each other. Exclusion is systematically violated in a substantial number of everyday cases. The case for Relevance made by the Double Prevention model is accordingly too weak to sustain a dualist approach to mental causation.

through moving a load on the cantilever, effectively playing a micro-guitar string by the light. In the meantime, our MBL can simultaneously pick up these pressure waves from both light and sound, and coherently mix them into optical signals, opening up a unique gate for the dual-physical-channel communication. Additionally, the MBL can also react to the external microwave through material absorption. Based on that, we demonstrate a deep-subwavelength probe for microwave imaging. These results prove the MBL as a compact versatile tool in hybrid micro-systems for

NP1 ends after NSX where the protagonist transforms from villain-exile to heroine in the form of helper and adopts a new actorial role as actantial and thematic subject in relation to other subjects within the cognitive and occurential doing of the second narrative program. The sequencing of NP1 and NP2 in figure of functions reveals the importance of the original conjunction and disjunction based upon indivi- dual physical characteristics set up between Effie, as an actor, and the subsequent subjects presented in the lexical text. The introductory narra- tive

second degree iconization. A genuine index enjoys a relation to its object irrespective of its interpretant: the sign's relation to its object lies not in mental association but in a direct, dual physical relation independent of the mind's use of the sign. Ordinarily the index asserts nothing. '[I]t only says "there!" It takes hold of our eyes, as it 6 F. Merrell were, and forcibly directs them to a particular object, and there it stops' (CP 3.361). In other words, the index solicits a 'line of sight' between the eye and the object —between one point and another

plays an unmistakable style of his own. (Chapter IV.) In contrast to Wesker, John Osborne, 'father' of the new English drama, has no clearly formulated programme at all; yet, the anti-establishmentarianistic tendencies of his plays are evident enough: violent invectives against the establish- ed society and a presentation of the problems arising from the clashes of indivi- dual physical needs with the taboos imposed by a fossilized society are the main 92 components of his dramatic work, which can easily be divided into a pre- Brechtian (Epitaph for George Dillon and
