This Is My Body: An Existential Analysis
of the Living Body
What does it mean to be human? This
book explores in detail this age-old question and provides a basis for rethinking the natural sciences of all living entities.
This is my Body presents the argument that the existentialist notion of being-in-the-world is a radical reassessment
of what it is to be a human being but it has not adequately established the natural spirituality of human
by a doctrine of emergence which fits into a neo-Aristotelian view of the natural human soul, the reader will consider that
being-in-the-world, seeing-the-world, and understanding-the-world and acting in the world are not merely physical.
The living human body is ensouled, and because it is ensouled it makes the surrounding world perceptually and intelligibly
present, and transforms the world in accordance with its desires for good and for bad.
This argument is reconciled with scientific knowledge, rigorous philosophical
argument and with ordinary human experience. This is my Body will leave you with a new understanding
of yourself and your existence in the world.
