[1 of 1] Swedenborg (1688-1772, Sweden): primary subject "Spirit, of man" (search under Inner Life/Mind, Psyche, Soul, Spirit)": source "Heaven and Hell": detail "Section 602"
The soul is nothing but the life of man, while the spirit is the man himself; and the earthly body which he carries about with him in the world is merely an agent whereby the spirit, which is the man himself, is enabled to act fitly in the natural world.
