The Soul's Code: In Search of Character and Calling
by James Hillman
About this title: Prominent Jungian author Hillman finds that the central and guiding force behind the "heart," "spirit," "soul," etc., can be illuminated by his "acorn theory"--in which each life is transformed by a unique image. He sees the image as the essence of that life and that which calls it to a destiny, just as the oak's destiny is written in the tiny acorn. He urges his readers to discover the "blueprints" particular to their own individual lives, and is convinced that there is more to life than can be explained by genetics or environment.
