Examines the politics surrounding the presence or absence of the idea of a soul: who has a soul, what difference does it make, and how do we know? What is the relationship of souls to bodies? Does the presence/absence of souls change what it means to kill? Are souls immortal, and in what sense does this matter when thinking or acting politically?
