In Defence of the Soul

Keith Ward

Denying the existence of the human soul has devastating effects on our valuation of human beings and human endeavour, maintains the author. He counters such denials, the result of the recent popularization of secular and materialist views of human development, with a detailed examination of philosophical, anthropological and scientific attacks on God and the reality of the human soul. Taking current scientific arguments back to their essentials, Professor Ward presents a convincing case. God is not dead – the watchmaker was never blind.
