Embodied Souls, Ensouled Bodies – Dr Marc Cortez

Dr Marc Cortez is Assistant Professor of Theology and Academic Dean at Western Seminary in Portland, Oregan.

In this fascinating talk given as part of a Faraday Institute Summer conference in July 2011, Dr Cortez gives an excellent overview of philosophical and theological anthropology – what makes us human – with particular emphasis on the various models of the “hard problem” of mind and body, and how these various models fit with Christian theology. He discusses Karl Barth’s insistance that all anthropological discussions must at least originate in a Christological framework, where Christ is used as a example of ultimate humanity.
