proof from logic alone of the immortal nature of the human soul
#6
I believe the affinity argument is used by Aquinas.  I was reading Phaedo, compared it to Aquinas in my Catechism of the Summa (Pegues O.P.) and it was virtually identical.  It was something along the lines of the sould is immortal because it can comprehend immaterial things, and thus is not only vegetative (a human), because a purely vegetative mind could only comprehend material things, like animals.
