There are 3 main ways in which we can view the world:
1) Materialism holds that there is nothing in the world besides matter. Accordingly, materialists view subjective consciousness as nothing more than the product of the interactions among the neurons in the human brain.
2) Idealism holds that nothing exists in the world except our conscious experiences. Idealists therefore regard the material world as a mere illusion of our consciousness.
3) Dualism is the philosophical tradition embraced by those who wish to reject neither the existence of the material world nor the existence of the mind. Dualists believe that there are two worlds: one of mind, and one of matter.
Gen 2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. (KJV)
