Access from EThOS:
As a work of constructive philosophical-theology, this disse11ation offers an account of theological anthropology by drawing from person-body substance dualism (e.g. pure, compound, and composite). To that end, I (i) philosophically defend substance dualism and parse out three kinds of substance dualism for exploration; (ii) show how substance dualism ontology persuasively accounts for the Scriptural narrative on human beings (the interface of philosophy and biblical-theology); (iii) defend person-body substance dualism as the most natural accounting for the New Testament teaching on the afterlife; (iv) constructively link contemporary dualism to the debate on the origin of the soul and put forward one novel model of origins; (v) draw out the implications from the various views on the soul's origin.
