Editorial Reviews

Review

“Whatever Sardello touches breaks open with startling new meaning. Now he enters the great arena of our cultural disorders so that we can suddenly see them afresh. I have thieved privately from his mind for fifteen years. At last his work is out, available to anyone recognizing the need to reimagine the soul’s plight in a world astray.”—James Hillman, founder of archetypal psychology and author of The New York Times best seller The Soul’s Code: In Search of Character and Calling --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Publisher

Expanding on ideas in Thomas Moore's Care of the Soul, his longtime colleague and the author of Facing the World with Soul discusses the relationship of the individual to the soul of the world and how awareness of this relationship helps ensure our future. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This book goes hand in hand with Silence by the same author.
J. Brunner
Sardello maintains that to truly speak objectively about soul and the world, we must enter into the creative processes which they are.

This in-depth and incredibly well-written book exploring a subject more than any other I have read.

well, maybe not, but without a doubt "Love and the World" is an immensely significant work in the field of depth psychology. Originally titled "Love and the Soul", Sardello's book takes an experiential look at the connection between the individual and the world. By staying within the realm of experience, Sardello allows the reader to begin the process of psychological research for him or herself. Sardello honors the original direction which Freud and then Jung trailblazed but points to the danger inherent in any exploration of soul which leaves out the world. Yet Sardello's experience of 'World' and his methodology which leads to it is what is truly groundbreaking about this work.
In "Love and the World" the world is not maintained to exist 'out there' independent of the individual, and yet, Sardello avoids any hints of suggesting the relativistic/constructivst conception which denies the possibility of talking objectively about realms such as Truth, Beauty and Goodness. Sardello maintains that to truly speak objectively about soul and the world, we must enter into the creative processes which they are. It is in the creative process that we can find, through sensing the creating activity of our own 'I', the link between ourself and the world. Sardello shows how spiritual psychology demands a distinction between the ego and the 'I'. This distinction has never been articulated in depth psychology and it is for this reason that the world has always been left out. And so after we identify the 'I' as distinct, not separate, from the ego, we can then experience the 'I' as the creative, non personal, yet completely individual, activity through which the world individuates itself and from which fully conscious, world oriented love is born.

Robert Sardello is never who you expect. This parent of LOVE AND THE WORLD is no exception. He prefers ecstasy to analysis, the imaginal and magic to logic. So if you would enjoy a conversation between Rudolf Steiner and Carl Jung, you will love this book. Shine.

More chapters have been added from this book`s previous incarnation as "Love and the World". If you enjoyed Love and the World you need to read this book.

The new chapters (six or seven) offer some of the most astonishing spiritual science/alchemy prose ever put to paper.

This book goes hand in hand with Silence by the same author.

UPDATE. Thank God this book is out on the Kindle. The only thing I didn`t like about Silence and Love and the Soul was the formatting and type setting which could never do justice to the contents. Hopefully that is not an issue on the Kindle.

This in-depth and incredibly well-written book exploring a subject more than any other I have read. I was able to relate experiences I have had and understood their place in my development, whereas many other books on this topic, are superficial. This is also not an easy read, but an incredibly rewarding one!

Robert Sardello's works are always a treat, but this is a tour de force. No one is more successful at opening up a concept, exploring the guts of it, and relating it to the larger whole. Sometimes he does that briefly and deeply like a meditation, as in Silence. Other places - as here - he provides a veritable sumptuousness of insight and perspective. No wonder this title is so well-loved. He is certainly one of our most nuanced and foremost contemporary cultural commentators and psychologists.
