Abstract

There are three perspectives on the nature of persons: Sacred, Secular, and Scientific. One idea is that these perspectives are fundamentally incompatible, inconsistent, incommensurable. Another is that these three perspectives can be reconciled. I explore the tension and explain how the ideas of a good human life, a morally excellent human life can be preserved even if the theories of evolution by natural selection and the view that the conscious mind is fully embodied are true.
