Bodies and Souls
Dr. Paul Bloom
Tuesday, March 22, 2005, 01:00pm - 02:00pm
Yale University, Department of Psychology
Evidence from developmental psychology suggests that both children and adults see physical entities such as objects (or bodies) as fundamentally distinct from psychological entities such as minds (or souls). We are natural-born dualists. This has profound implications for our mental life, and helps explain certain surprising facts about art, religion, humor, and morality.
