What does Webster say about soul?

from Kanye West (Ft. Gil Scott-Heron) – Who Will Survive in America Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

What does Webster’s Dictionary say about a “soul”? Does it consider it to be something tangible or is it a figment of our imagination that makes us sleep better at night thinking that we will go somewhere better after this world? The narrator is asking his audience in essence, what is your take on the existence of a “soul”. Do you believe what is written in a book by man or do you believe something larger and abstract?
