Christof Gestrich examines the paradigm shift that has occurred in relation to the soul's historicity, which the old »usual suspects« of philosophy or theology by no means gave rise to. He finds that the soul's new appearance even allows religion and science to be reconciled.
Many believe that the soul has gone missing in a Modern Age shaped by science and that there is no longer a clear image of it. Yet the soul reinterprets itself repeatedly – not so that one ends up not understanding it, but rather that one again sees in it what it always was: the power that brings individuals to life, holds them together and calls them to their inner unification. Christof Gestrich examines the paradigm shift that has occurred in relation to the soul's historicity, which the old »usual suspects« of philosophy or theology by no means gave rise to. He finds that the soul's new appearance even allows religion and science to be reconciled.
