Abstract:

Thomas Moore's books on the soul paint a picture of literate, sensitive, and artful human living. In The Education of the Heart, he presents many of the sources that influenced and inspired Care of the Soul, Soul Mates, and The Re-Enchantment of Everyday Life, choosing special passages that show us how to cultivate our humanity. But this is not merely a sourcebook or an anthology; it's a manual for living from the heart.

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.
