„Flesh–Body–Heart–Soul–Spirit: Paul’s Anthropology as an Interdisciplinary Bridge-Theory“, in: Michael Welker (Hg.), The Depth of the Human Person: A Multidisciplinary Approach, Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 2014, 45-57.
In the following, I should like, first, to illuminate the harsh dualism of “flesh and spirit” in Paul’s thought, a dualism that could be regarded as the root of many reductionistic evils in anthropology. In the second part, I will address Paul’s thoughts about the multidimensionality of the human body. A third part will deal with the various interrelations between spirit, body, soul, and spirit. In a final part, I will concentrate on Paul’s use of the terms “heart” and “conscience” as ciphers for future anthropological research about the complex unity of the human person.
