Redirect from "Concrete Object"?[edit]

The article about concrete objects redirects here. However, many philosophers classify the mind as a concrete object, but not as a physical body (see substance dualism and idealism). —Preceding unsigned comment added by Steohawk (talkcontribs) 20:27, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

I think it is a merely a semantic error that dualists are committing in trying to say that the two phrases are somehow different. Pontiff Greg Bard (talk) 18:20, 17 May 2009 (UTC)
As it says in the 1st sentence, the topic of this article is physical body primarily as a concept and term in physics. So I'm not sure why Concrete object, which is a term in philosopy and not a term in physics (or not a notable one today at least), should redirect to this article at all, unless perhaps it could redirect directly to the "In Philosopy" section which could mention the term concrete object and perhaps the question of whether it means the same as physical body in philosophy according to dualists or others. Alternatively, there could be a separate article like Physical body (philosopy) redirected from Concrete object or vice-versa. DavRosen (talk) 13:58, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
