The Force of Character: And the Lasting Life - hardcover

ISBN: 0375501207

[SR: 411030], Gebundene Ausgabe, [EAN: 9780375501203], Random House, Random House, Book, [PU: Random House], 1999-08-17, Random House, This philosophy/psychology work on character and aging is not a self-help book but rather a self-perception book--philosophical, wise, and deep. "What does aging serve? What is its point?" asks James Hillman, and proceeds to examine those questions fully. The loss of short-term memory, for example, enables us to better recall the past and review our lives. "On the one hand, brain cells may be flaking off like autumn leaves in a deciduous forest; on the other hand, a clearing is being made, leaving more space for occasional birds to alight." Hillman also likens short-term memory loss to a warehouse packed full of the inventory of life, emptying the latest files "to preserve enough emotional space for evaluating what has been there for a long time." Other aging markers also have benefits for character, reflection, and imagination. We wake up at night not only because our old bodies have to urinate, for example, but also because our minds are open to the wonders and mysteries of night. Hillman discusses the three major changes that character undergoes in later life. First is "lasting," which is the desire to live as long as possible. Next is "leaving," where we change from holding on to letting go, and our character becomes more exposed and confirmed. The final stage is "left": "what is left after you have left," and Hillman interweaves all the connotations of that word. --Joan Price, 64836011, Altern, 64768011, Herzkrankheiten, 64752011, Osteoporose, 64840011, Krebs, 64854011, Hauterkrankungen, 64839011, Rückenschmerzen, 64859011, Hörprobleme, 64861011, Schmerztherapie, 64852011, Depressionen, 64862011, Übungen, 64855011, Diabetes, 64769011, Persönliche Gesundheit, 64617011, Gesundheit, Geist & Körper, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 64643011, Persönlichkeit, 64618011, Psychologie & Beratung, 64617011, Gesundheit, Geist & Körper, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 1322756031, Alternde Eltern, 54072011, Eltern & Familie, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher
