The Concept of the Soul and the Problem of Diachronic Personal Identity* Josef Quitterer -- The Soul-Body Problem in Islamic Philosophical Psychology A. A. Shameli -- The Creation of the Human Soul: An Islamic Perspective Mohammad Ali Shomali -- The Simple View of Personal Identity and its Implications for Substance Dualism* Matthias Stefan -- Two Kinds of Ontological Dualism Erwin Tegtmeier -- On Subjects* Daniel Wehinger -- The Editors -- List of Authors.
Summary: The leading idea of the book is to focus on the common roots of Islamic and Western traditions and to increase awareness of the chances of systematic philosophical dispute, with the aim to promote a substantial dialogue on an academic level. Most of the collected papers in this edition are results of contributions to a workshop, organized by the editors of the volume, as an integrated part of a visit to the Imam Khomeini Education and Research Institute (IKERI) of Qom by a delegation of philosophers from the University of Innsbruck in May 2008. The organizational frame of the workshop and also of this edition is the partnership between the IKERI and the University of Innsbruck-the first formal high-level academic partnership between an Iranian Institution and a European University. The contributions in this edition investigate the topic "Soul" in an interdisciplinary and comparative way: Psychologists, Philosophers, and Theologians from both, Islamic and Western traditions, should be brought into dialogue with the focus on the general theme.
