More on the existence of the soul by Just Thomism

Our friend over at Just Thomism just keeps on truckin'. He is in the midst of an excellent series on the soul. There are commenters on this blog who deny the soul, and have leveled arguments against its existence. If you think about it, that is a rather strange thing to do for someone who does not believe in the soul--to level arguments, I mean. After all, the intellect is an aspect of the soul, and how do you argue unless you have an intellect to do it with?

Here's just one choice excerpt:
Our modern scientists who deny the spiritual existence of the soul because they can account for human life without it are no different than a bookbinder who denies the existence of writing style or syntax because he can account for the whole book without mentioning them at all.
In any case, they ought to take the intellects which they deny over to Just Thomism. They might learn something.

Or maybe not.
