by ANTONY FLEW,
Professor of Philosophy, Keele University
'Suppose that you are told that people are constituted of a few gallons of water, and of much smaller quantities of various other chemicals. You may think that it is impossible to escape the conclusion that people are merely chemicals ... that there can be no really good reason why they should not be treated and used as chemicals and nothing more.' Professor Flew shows how this conclusion can be avoided.
