Man - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1221 words)
A man is a male human, in contrast to an adult female, who is a woman.
The term man (irregular plural: men) is usually used for an adult, with the term boy being the term for a child.
In the 20th century, the generic meaning of man declined still further (but survives in compounds mankind, everyman, no-man's land, etc), and it is possible that future generations will see it as totally archaic, and use it solely to mean "adult male".
CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Man (2540 words)
Man is an individual, a single substance resultant from the determination of matter by a human form.
A masterly synthetic exposition of the theological and philosophical doctrine as to man is given in the "Summa Theologica" of St. Thomas Aquinas, I, QQ.
With regard to the last end of man (as "man" and not as "soul"), it is not universally held by Scholastics that the resurrection of the body is proved apodictically in philosophy.
