The concept of the soul is accepted in many religious traditions and widely used in fictional worlds and yet the idea that we are anything more than physiochemical organisms seems out of step with contemporary secular thinking. Scratch the surface of western philosophy, however, and you find a history filled with arguments in favor of the idea that we are embodied souls. This book provides a clear and concise history of the soul, from Plato to cuttingedge contemporary work in philosophy of mind. Taking in the arguments of influential thinkers, such as Aquinas, Locke, Hume, and Descartes, Goetz and Taliaferro tackle keys issues, such as the problem of mindbody interaction, the causal closure of the physical world, and the philosophical implications of the brain sciences for the souls existence. A Brief History of the Soul brings together historical and contemporary scholarship to examine one of the essential questions of our existence.
