Interaction of the Soul and Body (Vickers translation)


This is a translation of: De Commercio Animae et Corporis, by Emanuel Swedenborg

Translated into English by Paul Vickers


Description:

How do the spiritual and natural worlds interact? How does the soul interact with the body? This was an interesting question in Swedenborg's time (and it still is), and he became one of the top neuroscientists of his day as he explored it. In this short work he presents an explanation, primarily from a theological perspective, but informed by his study of the brain.
