From Soul to Self takes the reader on a fascinating journey through philosophy, theology, religious studies, and physiological sciences. Each of the essays, drawn from a number of different fields, focuses on the idea of the soul and of our sense of ourselves.
A stellar line-up of authors explore the relationship between a variety of ideas that have arisen in philosophy, religion and science, each idea seeking to explain why we think that we as individuals are somehow distinct and unique.
Contributors: Richard Sorabji, Anthony Kenny, Kallistos Ware, Peter Riviere, Gary Matthews, Susan Greenfield, Galen Strawson

Industry Reviews

"From Soul to Self is a fascinating survey of thought about the Soul/Body relationship. It ranges boldly from Shamanism and ancient philosophy through Greek Christianity to Augustine and Descartes to the latest thinking on science and philosophy. It makes one vividly aware of the complexity of issues involved." -Paul Badham, University of Wales "These essays offer a rich survey of our historical and scientific obsession with the notion of soul and self." -F. Scott Scribner, University of Connecticut, Waterbury
