The Force Of Character And The Lasting Life -by- James Hillman. Psychology/Personal Development.
The author resurrects the ancient, widespread, and socially effective idea of
the old person as 'ancestor', a model for the young, the bearer of a society's
cultural memory and traditions; 'oldness' is an archetypal state of being that
can add value and lustre to things we treasure, places we revere, and people's
character; when we open our imaginations to the idea of the ancestor, ageing can
free us from convention and transform us into a force of nature, releasing our
deepest beliefs for the benefit of society (Random House, Sydney, 1999) ISBN
