"Anthropological and Metaphysical Consequences of Non-Thomistic Understanding of the Human Soul: Selected Problems": The article is aimed to show how the non-Thomistic understanding of the human soul determine the understanding of the human being. The author discusses the following problems: 1) delayed animation, 2) the reductionist idea of the human soul, and 3) anima separata. All reductionist approaches to the soul necessarily lead to a limitation or negation of the subjectivity of the human person. In turn, the absolutization of the human spirit leads to a dualistic or idealistic vision of the human being. The proposition of St. Thomas Aquinas, in the light of which the human soul is necessarily assigned to the body, shows an integral image of man, confirmed in his external and internal experience.
