The soul, in many religious, philosophical, and mythological traditions, is the incorporeal essence of a living being.

On the Soul (Greek: Περὶ Ψυχῆς, Peri Psychēs; Latin: De Anima) is a major treatise written by Aristotle c.

Titus Lucretius Carus (died mid to late 50s BCE) was an Epicurean poet of the late Roman republican era.
