The body matters: the interment of King Richard III

We know instinctively, down to our bones, that the body is important, even after death, that Descartes and all his followers were wrong; the body isn't just a disposable meat suitcase for carrying around our souls. The body matters, and we feel it, we understand this, because we are our bodies.

This was surprisingly moving. It's what civilised people do.
