Is there another nature within mankind other than the physical? Moreland and Rae emphatically affirm this in their modern version of dualism. This body and soul (dualism) view has historical roots as far back as Plato and Aristotle. The authors review modern arguments from science, philosophy and theology to make a convincing case that humans are more than just a collection of molecules and genes.

It is the exclusion of the soul (monism) and its responsibilities in our high tech society that creates many of the moral dilemmas we face today such as abortion, euthanasia, fetal tissue research and more. As with many scientists in their respective fields, Moreland and Rae are defending the philosophical and ethical issues of "personhood" by stating that we consist of more than chance, material substances and we have responsibilities to ourselves and others.
