Although belief in the human soul is an old humanity itself, clarity regarding the reality and nature of the soul remains an elusive enigma. The fifteen chapters of this volume are an attempt at presenting an up-to-date and interdisciplinary approach to unravel this mystery. The consensus emerging from these papers is that the Christian insights and tradition on the issue are essentially in the right direction. But these must be understood and interpreted in light of contemporary developments in the neurological and other branches of science as well as serious philosophical and critical reflection on scientific date. It is hoped that this attempt will render the religious beliefs and insights more relevant and meaningful to contemporary men and women.
