The Thought of the Heart and the Soul of the World (Paperback)
Two groundbreaking essays, "The Thought of the Heart" and "Anima Mundi: The Return of the Soul to the World," by James Hillman that launched Archetypal Psychology and began the renaissance of a psychology that returns psychic reality to the world. Following Marsilio Ficino, who was the first to place the soul in the center of his vision, Hillman argues for a psychology that reflects the world it works in.
