But it isn’t too difficult to see how inappropriate it would be for him to stand up in court where time is limited. -caring for our souls is the most important thing… -Soc: “Philosophy is nothing but practice for dying and being dead”… practice for death and dying? -Soc ties his claim about separate existence of the forms…to immortality of the souls and show how they stand together; they depend upon each other. -It’s one thing to say we have souls. . and you want to care for it. .it’s fine… but to try to prove it’s immortal? -Afterall, if soul= differentiates you from dead? Dead= soul no longer inside? If it’s no longer there, it contradicts that it lives on. If seems that if soul = immortal, then soul just an entity the body has. Merely to show soul = entity but at the same time it differentiates you from a living/ dead thing… this entity has to be separate and somehow be me. -What if someone were to say: “When you die you can keep your organs and grow them forever?” You’d probably say: “Who cares? It doesn’t mean anything to me, because ‘I’ will be gone”. . to show soul = entity that can exist separately from the body…. Even then
