A Theory of Soul
Author: THOMAS D. LYNCH and CYNTHIA E. LYNCH
Published in PAM, Vol. 4 No. 2
This paper postulates a way of thinking about our individual and collective being that the authors argue is essential for us as professionals in public administration for the twenty-first century. In spite of the use of the words "soul" and "spirit," this is not a paper about religion but it is about infusing public administration with ethics and morality. We call this approach the Theory of the Soul. In this theory, the human "soul" is at least an acquired consciousness of one or more sentient beings that guides our behavior.
