The Force of Character

The Force of Character
and the Lasting Life

Old age as "an archetypal state of being." James Hillman, author of The Soul's Code, once again focuses on character -- in this case, its role in the pattern-making functions of the aged mind. Now increasingly subsumed by a youth-obsessed world, the aged were meant to be society's and culture's long-term memory processors, piecing together that "larger truth, a richer understanding" that only decades of living and experience can affect. If you need a new way to look at your own non-youth, or at the seniors around you, The Force of Character will definitely make you see the glorious mission of those "void of ova but packed with memes."
