I’m a Soul, Man

What is a soul? Is it something we have or something we are? This is a question that Delmar B. Epp explores in “I’m a Soul, Man: One Psychologist’s Reflection on Human Nature“.

The different options as he sees them are:

  • Radical dualism
  • Emergent dualism
  • Reductive materialism
  • Nonreductive physicalism

The fourth seems closest to my own view? What about you?

  1. Well, I know that in the Bible the word translated “soul” came from the word “nephesh” referring to a literal physical, flesh and blood creation.
