This chapter addresses the concern that for a Platonic soul to make sense, is not right to say that it has genuine parts. It also assesses the philosophical cost of soul-partition by considering its impact on the question of the soul’s immortality and by worrying, with Aristotle, about the soul’s unity.

Keywords: Plato; Aristotle; soul; parts; soul-partition; immortality; unity
