- Dawkins: Soul one and soul two
- Although Dawkins strongly rejects the notion of a soul in the religious or Platonic sense, he suggests there may be a place for talking about !soul," in a metaphorical or symbolic way.
- Soul one: The traditional view of a principle of life, a real separate thing that is spiritual and contains personality. (Dawkins rejects this)
- Soul two: Defined in the Oxford Dictionary refers to: "Intellectual or spiritual power. High development of the mental faculties. Deep feelings and sensitivity." (Dawkin accepts).
