    • In philosophy, the theory of materialism holds that all things are composed of material, and that all emergent phenomena (including consciousness) are the result of material properties and interactions. In other words, the theory claims that our reality consists entirely of physical matter that is the sole cause of every possible occurrence, including human thought, feeling, and action.

      Materialism is typically considered to be closely related to physicalism; although, to some philosophers, materialism is synonymous with physicalism.

      Contrasting philosophies include idealism and other forms of monism, dualism, and pluralism.
