No word in our language is more misunderstood than heart, and almost no word is more important, for it refers to what is at the very center of our soul. We have mapped the outer world, in fact the whole universe, with amazing exactness . . . but we have neglected the world within. This new book by venerable Catholic thinker Peter Kreeft offers a map of that inner world, that of the self. In it, he takes up the mantle of Dietrich von Hildebrand and plumbs the depths of that most misunderstood (by the world) and overlooked (by philosophers and theologians) part of the human being.

In Wisdom of the Heart, 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 drive us to compassion, empathy, and gratitude
  • Love, which is an act of the will, designed so that we can follow Jesus’s commandment to love God and others

This book, therefore, is a psychological aid to understanding the philosophy behind St. John Paul II’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. A new masterwork by one of the foremost Catholic philosophers of our time, Wisdom of the Heart is essential reading for understanding ourselves, our God, and our relationship with Him.
