Moments of Soul

An Inquiry into Personal Attraction

Series:

John D. Sommer

Moments of Soul is a philosophical inquiry into four distinctive powers of humanity: free choice, personal identity, honor, and faith. The theme through all four powers is the paradox of soul as the power of attraction between persons, not the hidden attribute of an individual. While the inquiry aims to develop our powers of mutual attraction, it exposes some common mistakes of our times, such as reducing mind to brain function, mixing personal identity with ethnic pride, and confusing faith with religious belief. The method is to avoid making images or analogies in order to state clear problems and find their solutions.
