Soul and Body

Discusses the relationship between soul and body as seen through the philosophies of Plato and Aristotle.

Metaphysics has long been concerned with soul-body relation and generated more questions than answers. Plato sees the soul and body as separate and transiently united. The soul is immortal and exists in an eternal form. Departing from this idea, Aristotle contends that the soul is as inseparable from the body as form is from matter. Objectivism rejects the dichotomy altogether and argues that man is an entity of physical and psychological states
