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.

“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
