The soul is essentially “that which feels” and has to be devoid of any material part in order to be such, it has to be “spiritual”. There are two fundamental realities in man: the idea of being, and the fundamental feeling. By means of both, knowledge becomes possible, the idea providing the objectivity, and the fundamental feeling providing the matter. Rosmini provides many proofs for the existence of the “fundamental feeling” and explains its origin, nature, and implications. He provides powerful arguments against materialism and any other theory which reduces man to pure matter. Such arguments are particularly valuable in the current debates about Mind and Body.
