Neuroscience and the soul : the human person in philosophy, science, and theology
Ch. 4 Why top-down causation does not provide adequate support for mental causation / J.P. Moreland
Ch. 6 A rejoinder to Runyan / J.P. Moreland
In Neuroscience and the Soul fourteen distinguished scholars grapple with current debates about the existence and nature of the soul. Featuring a dialogical format, the book presents state-of-the-art work by leading philosophers and theologians—some arguing for the existence of the soul, others arguing against it—and then puts those scholars into conversation with critics of their views. Bringing philosophy, theology, and science together in this way brings to light new perspectives and advances the ongoing debate over body and soul.
