Keith Ward has taught philosophy and theology in British universities for the past forty years, and he is now weighting in on a major intellectual battle: whther human persons are purely material - nothing but matter - or whther there is another, deeply valuable part of us, which transcends our bodies in nature and moral worth. For centuries philosophers have debated this question, but the battle has taken the limelight through the works of the new atheists, who argue that we are just pointless accidents - random combinations of stuff that just happen to be arranged to make thinking, felling beings, but otherwise have no purpose. In this book Professor Ward guides the reader through a panoply of thinkers and traditions, arguing that there is more to humanity than bodies. In fact, he argues, there is more to the entire universe than the naked eye perceives.
