This text looks into early Greek philosophy for a treatment of what is meant by the concept of soul and soulness, carrying forward the use of this term as it was defended in the 3rd century AD by Plotinus, the founder of Neoplatonism. In this essay soul, self and selfhood are also placed in relationship with belief and judgment, noting that belief, with or without evidence, is more convincing to the self than simply a statement of facts, and must come before a full understanding of the manifold can be arrived at.


The noumenal self; Plato's "Phaedo"; Aristotle's soul; Plotinus and the soul; judgment; the virtual self; self and belief; imagination and the self; purpose and the self; the language of promise.
