On Man

St. Justin the Philosopher ca. 103-165

For what is man, if not consisting of a soul and body as a rational living thing? Therefore, is the soul in and of itself man? No, the soul is not man. Would you call the body man? No, but it is called the body of man. Therefore, neither one of the two is in of itself man, but the union of the two is indeed called man. (Fragments)
