'John and Mary Doe, I Love You'

Martin, Malachi B.
January 1975
National Review;1/17/1975, Vol. 27 Issue 1, p44
The article states that issues like personal love, personal dignity, and personal achievement are arbitrary and relative. The civilization and its culture were built around one linchpin persuasion that the personal identity resides in spirit, or soul. The soul has a unique relationship to one body and to the material world. The practitioners and theorists in medicine, psychology, anthropology, and science treat and define the self solely in terms of physical and psychological conditions and functions.
