Description - A Terrible Love of War by James Hillman

War is a timeless force in the human imagination and, indeed, in daily life. Engaged in the activity of destruction, its soldiers and its victims discover a paradoxical yet profound sense of existing, of being human. In A Terrible Love of War , James Hillman, one of today s most respected psychologists, undertakes a groundbreaking examination of the essence of war, its psychological origins and inhuman behaviors. Utilizing reports from many fronts and times, letters from combatants, analyses by military authorities, classic myths, and writings from great thinkers, including Twain, Tolstoy, Kant, Arendt, Foucault, and Levinas, Hillman s broad sweep and detailed research bring a fundamentally new understanding to humanity s simultaneous attraction and aversion to war. This is a compelling, necessary book in a violent world."
