In an era of information technology we tend to neglect education in the emotions, the imagination, and civility. Thomas Moore's books on the soul paint a picture of literate, sensitive, and artful human living. In The Education of the Heart he presents many of the sources that influenced and inspired Care of the Soul, Soul Mates , and The Re-Enchantment of Everyday Life , choosing special passages that show us how to cultivate our humanity. But this is not merely a sourcebook or anthology; it's a manual for living from the heart. Here we read the great teachers and writers of the past and present, not as representatives of historical periods but as vivid teachers who show us the way towards a richer, more spiritful and soul-filled life. As Thomas Moore says, Listen to these passages, write them down for future reference, tell them to friends, commit them to memory - these are all ways of educating the heart.
