The first chapter deals with the subject of the body and soul as conceived in the western patriarchal tradition. This is explored from the perspective of the feminist critique of the body/soul dualism, and includes the response of the holistic-dualists to some of the philosophical and theological critiques of dualist anthropology. The Second chapter examines the 'holistic' alternative to dualism proposed by Sallie McFague and Rosemary Radford Ruether, alongside a number of other ecofeminist critiques. Chapter Three, looks at the rejection/use of dualism in New Age spirituality. In particular, I explore the theme of divine immanence and transcendence. Finally, Chapter Four is a study and appreciative critique of three alternative, yet distinctive approaches to the problem of traditional dualism. From these, different strands of thought are brought together and it is argued that dualism is necessary for Christian theology, but that this must be a modern form of dualism, that is holistic dualism.
