Some call it genius. Others have names it spirit, daimon, and even guardian angel. But while philosophers and psychologists from Plato to Jung emphasize the fundamental essence of our individuality, our modern culture refuses to accept that a unique, formed soul is within us from birth, shaping as much as is shaped. Now in this extraordinary bestseller, James Hillman presents a brilliant new vision of our selves not defined by family relationships or the mentality of victimization. Drawing on the biographies of such disparate people as Ella Fitzgerald and Mohandas K. Gandhi, James Hillman argues that character is fate and shows how the soul, if given the opportunity, can assert itself even at an early age. The result is a reasoned and powerful road map to understanding our true nature and discovering an eye opening array of choices, from the way we raise our children to our career paths to our social and personal commitments to achieving excellence in our time. Champions a glorious sort of rugged individualism that, with the help of an inner daimon (or guardian angel), can triumph against all odds. ˜ Washington Post Book WorldBrilliant, 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
