Neuroscience, embodied soul, Discursive naturalism


In the contemporary scenario of the philosophy of mind, there are two divergent streams of explanations regarding the character of the human soul (psyche). The Cartesian tradition illustrates the human body and soul as two independent metaphysical substances and the empiricists, on the other hand, deny this extreme division between mind and soul and argue that the human soul has a natural development. Grant Gillet attempts in his book to establish the theory of the embodied soul based on the Aristotelian description of the human soul that proposes the theory of the natural development of the soul.
