By relying on both Primo Levi and a number of Wittgenstein's remarks and reminders, I want to bring out both the entrenched nature of our basic attitudes towards human beings as beings possessed of a soul, and what it would be like for us not to have or display such an attitude. The question is to what extent those attitudes of ours can be subverted (as if we where "soul blind"), or, to put it in other terms, to explore some cases in which we fail to acknowledge the humanity of the other.
