Insofar as theology is responsible to its religious sources, it seeks to answer religious questions, such as, for Christians, \"What must I do to be saved?\" However, theology also involves asking whether such a question is the right one at all. This essay attempts an innovative approach to this question by investigating the intelligibility of \"the soul.\" Much recent neurobiology suggests that, even if a defensible notion of soul can be presented, it is unclear that it would allow meaningful talk about salvation.
