The body is not the essence of the human person.

The body is not the essence of the human person.
In memory.

The body is not the essence of the human person. ( PLATO)

Plato proves this through the process of elimination.
There are three possibilities, one is that the human person is essentially a soul or a body or a combination of body and soul. The body does not rule itself, therefore it cannot be the body. And if the body does not rule itself it cannot be in combination of the body and soul ruling, therefore the soul rules over the body, and the soul is the essence of the human person.

I really like this composition, and I also like the thought-provoking quote. Makes me stop and stare at this man walking away, and think about your statement.

very impressing compo. Love the rather decisive step of the man into the pic. Lovely split up in an upstairs and slowly downwards movement in the pic. Perspective at the right is leading and a beauty. The loosely rhythm at right , also alternating in white and blue, is nicely contrasting with the tight one colored "beat" at the left.
Light is very pleasant (the man's cloth !) . Good treatment of this difficult light. Great work ...

Philosophically spoken: the soul cannot rule without the body .... so the soul cannot be the essence of the human person :D Which shows that all things can be proven when they are not declared well .....
For me the division into a body and a soul is an artificial one. "A soul" (whatever that may be) manifests itself only in at least one body and a body alone ..... that's even harder to define. I agree with Joan+

La filosofia di Platone non poteva che essere raffigurata da una immagine come questa. La ripresa di spalle ne rafforza il pensiero.Ciao a te.
