in religion, when we talk about human, we're talking about a being which has different faculties, and has soul, and is everlasting. we're not simply talking about social aspects of human or how they behave toward one another.
so the term need to cover these areas as well. like where have we come from, what are we doing here, where are we going, and what difference we have from animals, what are our different faculties (sense, imagination, wisdom, ... our never satisfying thirst for perfection ...) . you know, like how human is talked in philosophy.
anthropology might work, but is there a better word for it?
thanks in advance.
