Soul by any other name

Psychological Perspectives

Over the years, the idea of soul became the property of many disciplines: religion, philosophy, medicine, technology and psychology. For example, the word that I so often use – psyche -- refers to our psychology but it also means soul.

Descriptions of soul include many difficult to understand details, such as soul accompanying a person into death and beyond. Soul is often considered different than a person's body. It is often described in terms of spirituality and the essence of life. Returning to psychology, if psyche means soul, then maybe our psychology is soul. Let me be more specific.
