2nd Edition: Previously published as "The Soul Does Not Specialize." This 2019 release contains a new preface by Dennis Patrick Slattery.
An education in the Humanities is under attack, defunded and depreciated in academic institutions ranging from primary school through doctoral degree programs both in the United States and abroad. The emphasis is on educating students for standardized and specialized minds, at the expense of educating the whole student, which includes, as the title of this volume argues, schooling the soul.
This collection brings together essays by administration, faculty, and staff from Pacifica Graduate Institute, a small educational institution located on the coast of Central California, which emphasizes the wisdom traditions in depth psychology, mythology, and the humanities. Each essay is a personal manifesto, an impassioned argument for the importance of an education in the humanities which stimulates the mind, nourishes the soul, and gives wings to the imagination.
