Love and the Soul is an immensely significant work in the field of depth psychology. Sardello maintains that, to speak truly objectively about soul and the world, we must enter the creative processes that they are. In the creative process, through sensing the creating activity of our “I,” we can find the link between ourselves and the world. – How refreshing to read a sophisticated work in the field of psychology that earns the distinction by leaving theories, abstractions, and in-bred language systems at the door. Like any truly improvisational art, Sardello is not content to present a system of finished concepts that can be repeated and systematized; rather, he enters the active images of experience and, from there, performs language that can deepen the readers own explorations and questions. This quality is reflected in the poetic style that imbues each sentence of this important work.
