In my recent post Abortion and the Philosophy of Mind I made this comment:
“In all of the debates raging over the status of the fetus I have yet to come across material which articulates the connection this issue has with the philosophy of mind.”
I am happy to report that I’ve found an excellent book which deals with this very issue from a dualist perspective. The title of the book is Body & Soul: Human Nature & the Crisis in Ethics by J. P. Moreland and Scott B. Rae. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in an articulate account of the nature of human beings, the philosophy of mind, and bioethics from a Christian perspective.
I shall write more on this subject myself in the very near future; until then, please enjoy this great book!
