Write-up2 (as at 07/04/2019 09:40:19): Soul Criterion
- There ought to be a division of labour between this Note and its parent Note on Souls4.
- The parent Note ought to discuss what souls are (supposed to be), and what problems the concept encounters, while this one should focus on how souls help with the problem of personal identity.
- Some of the ground is also covered by the note on Dualism5.
- For a page of Links6 to this Note, Click here.
- Works on this topic that I’ve actually read7, include8 the following:-
- Both Notes require9 the following books10 to be read:-
→ "Brown (Warren), Murphy (Nancey) & Malony (H. Newton), Eds. - Whatever Happened to the Soul: Scientific and Theological Portraits of Human Nature", Brown
→ "Cooper (John) - Body, Soul and Life Everlasting: Biblical Anthropology and the Monism-dualism Debate", Cooper
→ "Corcoran (Kevin) - Rethinking Human Nature: A Christian Materialist Alternative to the Soul", Corcoran
→ "Corcoran (Kevin), Ed. - Soul, Body and Survival: Essays on the Metaphysics of Human Persons", Corcoran
→ "Crabbe (James), Ed. - From Soul to Self", Crabbe
→ "Moreland (J.P.) & Rae (Scott) - Body & Soul - Human Nature and the Crisis in Ethics", Moreland+Rae

→ "Porter (Roy) - Flesh in the Age of Reason - The Modern Foundations of Body and Soul", Porter
→ "Swinburne (Richard) - The Evolution of the Soul", Swinburne
→ "Ward (Keith) - The Battle for the Soul", Ward
- Currently, everything (such as it is) resides under the parent Note. When I’ve conducted (or written up) more research, I’ll divide the text accordingly.
- In principle, there is a categorised reading-list, but at the moment all reading material resides under the parent Note.
- A reading list (where not covered elsewhere) might start with:-
- "Baltimore (Joseph A.) - Got to Have Soul", Baltimore
- "Bruntrup (Godehard) - Soul, Body and Survival: The Renaissance of Christian Materialism", Bruntrup
- "Carruthers (Peter) - Introducing Persons: Identity and the Soul", Carruthers

- A number of my philosophical Notes are “promissory notes” currently only listing the books and papers (if any) I possess on the topic concerned.
- I’ve decided to add some text – whether by way of motivation, or something more substantive – for all these identified topics related to my Thesis.
- As I want to do this fairly quickly, the text may be confused or show surprising ignorance.
- The reader (if such exists) will have to bear with me, and display the principle of charity while this footnote exists.
- If only a “non-updating” run has been made, the links are only one-way – ie. from the page of links to the objects that reference this Note by mentioning the appropriate key-word(s). The links are also only indicative, as they haven’t yet been confirmed as relevant.
- Once an updating run has been made, links are both ways, and links from this Notes page (from the “Authors, Books & Papers Citing this Note” and “Summary of Note Links to this Page” sections) are to the “point of link” within the page rather than to the page generically. Links from the “links page” remain generic.
- There are two sorts of updating runs – for Notes and other Objects. The reason for this is that Notes are archived, and too many archived versions would be created if this process were repeatedly run.
- Frequently I’ll have made copious marginal annotations, and sometimes have written up a review-note.
- In the former case, I intend to transfer the annotations into electronic form as soon as I can find the time.
- In the latter case, I will have remarked on the fact against the citation, and will integrate the comments into this Note in due course.
- My intention is to incorporate into these Notes comments on material I’ve already read rather than engage with unread material at this stage.
Footnote 9: This is becoming a shelf-load, so “require” is rather strong!
- I may have read others in between updates of this Note – in which case they will be marked as such in the “References and Reading List” below.
- Papers or Books partially read have a rough %age based on the time spent versus the time expected.
- In general, if a book is noted, its Chapters are not.
