Summary
Dr. Coles shows how the work of writers, artists, and thinkers of the past two centuries can inspire our own reflections on our daily lives. He offers a compelling call to venture outside our own selves and lives and to listen, attentively and with growing humanity, to the way others get through life, and he encourages us to examine our own character, kindness, and complexity by studying the wisdom of authors from Charles Dickens to Flannery O'Connor, from James Agee to George Orwell, and many others. Inthis influential conversation about empathy and engagement, Coles inspires us to seek out deeper meaning in our lives and guides us toward achieving greater clarity, strength, and richness of understanding amid the moral, psychological, and social complexities of the modern world. --Publisher's description from dust cover
