  1. According to Aristotle, which part of human body is not perishable?

This is one of the questions that elicit great philosophical debates from the work of Aristotle. For centuries, scholars and philosophers have discussed about the concept of perishability and there is a general agreement that for Aristotle, the intellect remains immortal. In this work, De Anima, Aristotle contends that thinking is not a function of a single body organ, even though brain is considered the basic organ of thinking (Klemp, 2009). This means that even if the body dies and decay, intellect is not robbed but continues to live. It is the only living function of the body without any connection to the decayed body.  However, it is important to differentiate between intellect and the soul. The soul is immortal and it perishes with the body.
