my textbook is “from socrates to sartre”


One of the contemporary fascinating issues is human beings’ search for spiritual fulfillment. New worship centers are coming up on daily basis, and I always wondered what the fascination with religious worship is. Interestingly, religion is one of the most intoxicating doctrines, and it is also a cause of deaths and sufferings. The answer lies in the issue of immortality of human soul.  The immortality of human soul is one of the enduring philosophical tenets, albeit controversial.   Although Plato’s notion of immortality of human soul is refuted by among others Hume, I believe in immortality of the human soul because it is the only way to explain the contemporary fascination with religious worship.
