We must now consider the knowledge of the separated soul.
Under this head there are eight points of inquiry:
A Whether the soul separated from the body can understand?
A Whether it understands separate substances?
A Whether it understands all natural things?
A Whether it understands individuals and singulars?
A Whether the habits of knowledge acquired in this life remain?
A Whether the soul can use the habit of knowledge here acquired?
A Whether local distance impedes the separated soul's knowledge?
A Whether souls separated from the body know what happens here?
