Writer/Copy Editor Simone Delochan interviewed Fr Dexter Bereton CSSp via email on the Catholic concept of soul. This is the second in a two-part series.
Christian thinking on souls, Fr Dexter Brereton CSSp explained, emerges from the meeting of philosophy and theology, both closely related disciplines.
“Philosophy, especially metaphysics, attempts to arrive at an understanding of the nature of life and existence” using human reason. Theology “also attempts to arrive at an understanding of the truth of life and existence” by human reason and revelation.
