body soul and spirit

I am having a discussion with some that believe instead of 3 parts we are composed of 2 parts....what you you all think? 2 or 3?
two parts (dichotomy) and not three parts (trichotomy)

It depends on what is meant.

We have a material part and immaterial part. So we are definitely a dichotomy in some sense

Can the immaterial part also be divided into two separate or distinct parts and if so what is the difference of them? I don’t know if we can get a clear answer here on earth but maybe the soul is the part of our immaterial self that internally defines who we are and our spirit is the immaterial part that interacts with the immaterial world.

In which case we could also be classified as a trichotomy as well as a dichotomy.
