A Thoughtful Soul: Reflections from Swedenborg
(ISBN: 978-0-87785-148-6)



In this thoughtful introduction to Emanuel Swedenborg’s spiritual writings, author George F Dole leads the reader through a philosophical consideration of how this eighteenth-century theology fits into modern concepts of knowledge, self, and the afterlife.

Each of the ten chapters starts with a brief introduction from Dole followed by a series of short excerpts from Swedenborg’s writings that illustrate the point. For this volume, all of Swedenborg’s words were translated from the Latin by Dole himself, who is also a translator for the New Century Edition of the Works of Emanuel Swedenborg.
