Show Summary Details

Preview

Calvin has a strong dualist view of the human person. His understanding of the immortality of the soul is considered. The main sections of the Chapter are involved in considering three contemporary misunderstandings of Calvin's view of the soul. These concern various ways in which the Fall has affected its workings.
