'Well, then, what makes a man a man is something inside him.'

'A soul?' I suggested.

'No,' he said, 'souls are just counters for churches to collect, all the same value, like nails. No, what makes man man is mind; it's not a thing, it's a quality, and minds aren't all the same value; they're better or worse, and the better they are, the more they mean. See where we're going?'

According to the text, what makes a man is held inside him. It's the way he thinks, his values..... his morals. Yes, I agree.
