What does this word “spiritual” mean? Some Christians distinguish between the soul, and the spirit. I understand how the word soul is used:
i. Non-physical component of a person
ii. The rational capacity of a person (philosophy)
iii. The cognitive capacity of a person (ancient philosophy)
iv. The emotional/(feminine-)intuitive/non-regulative aspect of a person
v. The eternal part of a person
v Scholium: Plato has an interesting argument for the immortality of the soul in virtue of it not being material.
1. If something is material, it decays
Corollary 1 X is material
Corollary 2 X decays
2. The soul is not material
3. The soul cannot decay/die
What of the term, spiritual?
1. I don’t practice a religion, but I’m spiritual
2. I engage in my ‘spiritual side’
This term I do not understand
