Alvin Plantinga and the Soul

October seems to be Philosophy Month, so continuing that theme here are two more videos with Alvin Plantinga (who now has his own lable). First is his modal argument for the dualism (six minutes)

Very simple and straight forward. If A has a property that B does not have than A and B are not identical. If the mind can be conceived of as existing apart from the body (or the brain) then the mind is not identical with the body.

In his next video he argues for the immortality of the soul (which is still dependent on God for its existence) (7:30)
