Agree, but it is clear that so many people believe the 'soul' is some kind of separate entity within the body and can have a separate existence, despite the increasing knowledge of science to the contrary.Quote
Susan, the term "soul" is a word. I agree with you that it names or describes an "aspect of the totally integrated person". But I disagree with you that it is just an idea. The word 'soul', I suggest, describes a set of concepts or ideas in the mind/brain but it just as surely describes that "totally integrated person" we meet in the world out there. So words reference things in the world and things 'in the mind.'
