"[An] acute and powerful vision . . . offers a renaissance of humane values ."--Thomas Moore, author of Care of the Soul and The Re-Enchantment of Ever yday Life Plato called it "daimon," the Romans "genius," the Christians "guardian ang el"; today we use such terms as "heart," "spirit," and "soul." While philos ophers and psychologists from Plato to Jung have studied and debated the fu ndamental essence of our individuality, our modern culture refuses to accep t that a unique soul guides each of us from birth, shaping the course of ou r lives. In this extraordinary bestseller, James Hillman presents a brillia nt vision of our selves, and an exciting approach to the mystery at the cen ter of every life that asks, "What is it, in my heart, that I must do, be, and have? And why?" Drawing on the biographies of figures such as Ella Fitzgerald and Mohandas K. Gandhi, Hillman argues that character is fate, that there is more to eac h individual than can be explained by genetics and environment. The result is a reasoned and powerful road map to understanding our true nature and di scovering an eye-opening array of choices--from the way we raise our childr en to our career paths to our social and personal commitments to achieving excellence in our time. Praise for The Soul's Code "Champions a glorious sort of rugged individualism that, with the help of a n inner daimon (or guardian angel), can triumph against all odds."--The Was hington Post Book World "[A] brilliant, absorbing work . . . Hillman dares us to believe that we are each meant to be here, that we are needed by the world around us."--Publishers Weekly.
