This excellent book traces the history of the philosophy of science as it relates to the Christian faith, and it makes the case that modern science developed in western culture because the The Soul view of the cosmos--that it is (1) orderly, and (2) contingent (i.e., it could have been otherwise)--is the only foundation strong enough to allow scientific enterprise to flourish/5.

to the soul in both dualistic and monistic terms – either as that part of the human person which ascends to the heavenly realm at death, or as standing for the ‘inner personality, the real “I”’. The soul, understood in the Aris- totelian sense, is the ability of the brain, or of the entire organism through the brain, to carry out these processes, ranging from the most basic func- tions, called physical, to the higher and more complex ones, called Size: KB.

Recently two quantum scientists have claimed that they can prove the existence of the soul, a quantum entity that acts as the program for the computer of our brain, and exists independently of the Author: Damon Isherwood. Sometimes Plato's division of the psyche into its three main elements can be easily misunderstood.

Some who read about it for the first time think it is the same as Freud's division of the psyche into the ego (das Ich), id (das Es), and superego (das Über-Ich), but it isn't the same as Freud's division.

Empiricism is the philosophical stance according to which the senses are the ultimate source of human knowledge. It stands in contrast to rationalism, according to which reason is the ultimate source of knowledge.

In Western philosophy, empiricism boasts a long and distinguished list of followers; it became particularly popular during the 's and ': Andrea Borghini. The soul is a scientific hypothesis about the design and functioning of human beings (the stuff of biology, psychology, and neuroscience), and dualism makes claims about the detachability of mind and body and the existence of a substance capable of causal interaction with ordinary matter (the stuff of physics).

The Modern English word "soul", derived from Old English sáwol, sáwel, was first attested in the 8th century poem Beowulf v. and in the Vespasian Psalter It is cognate with other German and Baltic terms for the same idea, including Gothic saiwala, Old High German sêula, sêla, Old Saxon sêola, Old Low Franconian sêla, sîla, Old Norse sála and Lithuanian siela.
