The Concept of the Soul PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Concept of the Soul free pdf The idea of the soul is one which will not go away. This is despite the fact that traditional dualist understandings of humankind - that we are compound creatures, made up of a material body and a non-material soul - have been widely criticised in recent decades, by scholars from both theological and scientific backgrounds. What are the origins of the centuries-old traditions of dualist thinking? How have they been developed, and what can still be learned from them? What can modern philosophers and theologians say about the concept of the soul from a monist perspective? What light can scientific studies of the brain cast on it? And what perspectives can faiths other than Christianity bring to these issues? These were some of the issues considered at the 2012 conference of the Science and Religion Forum, held at Regents Park College, Oxford. This book presents papers derived from that conference, including contributions from leading scientific and theological scholars. Their very disparate approaches - and very diverse conclusions - will be of interest to a wide readership.
