The New York Times > Opinion > Op-Ed Contributor: The Duel Between Body and Soul

The opinion piece misses a key reality of a human being: I prefer the model: body - soul - spirit. Here's a view closer to mine on this point.

body: our physical self consisting of atoms and molecules

soul: those processes of the brain that create memory, reason and emotions

spirit: that which is created by God and is eternal; the part of a human that will never die
