What makes us human? Most contemporary philosophers and scientists hold that we are complicated machines, or animals different from other machines only by being conscious. In Are We Bodies or Souls? Richard Swinburne presents new philosophical arguments, supported by modern neuroscience, for the view that we are essentially immaterial souls sustained in existence by our brains.
