Swinburne & the Existence of the Human Soul

Richard Swinburne of Oxford University is one of the world’s great theistic philosophers. Here is an interview with Swinburne in which he defends the existence of the human soul. Swinburne is a property dualist, which is the view that the soul and the brain are distinct substances and that the soul survives the death of the body. J.P. Moreland is also a property dualist. For Moreland’s and William Lane Craig’s arguments for the existence of a soul that exists independently of the physical human body see their text Philosophical Foundations for a Christian Worldview.
