Here we read the great teachers and writers of the past and present not just as representatives of historical periods but as vivid teachers who show us the way toward a richer, more spirit- and soul-filled life. The selections come from Greek tragedies and ancient magical texts; from the Renaissance philosophers so often mentioned in Moore's earlier books, such as Marsilio Ficino, Pico della Mirandola, Robert Fludd, and others; and from modern archetypal psychologists such as C. G. Jung and James Hillman. Moore has selected these passages not only for their brilliance in describing the soul but also for the beauty and power of their language.
