Resource summary

nature and existence of soul
  1. Nature
    1. Incorporeal (without material form)
      1. immortal essence of a person
        1. Aristotle - sol was not a distinct substance from the body. the soul is closer to the idea of a life force
          1. Aquinas - the soul animates the body and gives it life
          2. Existence
            1. Plato
              1. The 'use' argument
                1. a user differs from what is used
                  1. A human being uses his/her body
                    1. therefore a human being must be different from the body
                      1. a person is either a body or a soul. therefore a person must be a soul
                2. the 'recollection argument
                  1. things in the world of senses are not perfect. eg: beautful things are not absolutely beautiful
                    1. we would not have this certainty if we did not already know what absolute beauty is
                      1. therefore we must know absolute beauty innately
                        1. therefore we must have lived before birth
                  2. the 'opposites' argument
                    1. in nature we observe cycles of opposites eg hot -> cold etc
                      1. reasonable to suppose that when we die, we will be transformed into something else.
