Sample text

Phillips in 1706 had seen fit to distinguish between body and soul only in the definition for difference: ‘Difference (in Logick) signifies an Essential Attribute ... and is the Universal Idea of that Species. Thus Body and Spirit or Soul, are two Species of Substance ... ’ It would seem that, as body became more commonly defined as a matter of impenetrable solidity, there was a corresponding imperative to incorporate spirit or soul into the definition. This theory is not perfect, as the twenty-fourth edition of Bailey’s dictionary, ‘carefully enlarged and corrected by Edward Harwood,’ omits reference to spirit, but consider Samuel Johnson’s influential Dictionary of the English Language (1755).

16 What McLuhan was conflating, either consciously or unconsciously, was a religious version of human spirit with a mechanistic association of the mind as extended, electrified matter. Speculations upon the spirits of so-called post-humans extending beyond the body in electric or electronic media have been reiterated regularly in fiction, film, and theory for several decades: the relationship between material embodiment and immaterial identity, consciousness, or soul is a fundamental trope of cyborg literature.

Denis Diderot also suggested a monistic interpretation of mind and body in depicting the human nervous system, in his unpublished play Le Rêve de d’Alembert (1769), as a web extending beyond the body to the contiguous objects in the world and universe sensed by the individual. Later the discovery of electricity and its effects on organic bodies compelled the conversation about body mechanics and animation to change its vocabulary. Samuel Taylor Coleridge, who embraced and Introduction 27 then rejected Hartley’s mechanical physiology, could stand as an emblem of a groundswell against a mechanistic world-view, while physiologists continued to examine and explain the human body in terms of its material mechanisms.
