No word in our language is more misunderstood than the word "heart." And almost no word is more important, for it refers to what is at the very center of our soul. Peter Kreeft examines the two common understandings of the heart's purpose and shows how they are not at odds, but rather different (and essential) facets: feeling and emotion, which can reduce us to action without thinking, but also drives us to compassion, empathy, and gratitude; and love, an act of the will, designed so that we can follow Jesus' commandment to love God and others. This book, therefore, is a psychological aid to understanding the philosophy behind St. John Paul's "Theology of the Body" while exploring the three dimensions of persons: the will, the mind, and the emotions, and their three loves: the good, the true, and the beautiful.
