What Are We? The Three Answers Underlying Many Spiritual, Moral And Political Disagreements (And Why One Answer Is Better Than The Other Two) Post 4 Of 8

All disagreements about what promotes the good life—human flourishing and the common good—depend on one’s answer to the question “What is it to be human?” The last two weeks I’ve argued we are a unity of soul and body. This week I’ll consider the second answer: “To be human is to be a purely physical thing—a human body.”  Here I’ll discuss four reasons people give in favor of this view, and next week I’ll discuss another two reasons. I’ll also explain why I think these reasons fail–why physicalism is not the right answer to the question.

Any story sounds true until someone tells the other side and sets the record straight.
-Proverbs 18:17

It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, and the glory of kings to investigate a matter.
-Proverbs 25:2

"As a natural skeptic, and a science researcher, I am interested in logic and evidence, which is why I'm a big fan of Dr. Wallace’s articles. He considers serious, foundational topics, and discusses them deeply. These articles induce us to think, long and hard, about issues of eternal significance."
