Active reading of this book can heal the mind/body split that has tormented thinking people for centuries. It shows that my ideas belong not only to me but also to the world I perceive with my physical senses. 'Whoever lives the true life in the world of ideas, feels working in himself the being of the world in a warmth that cannot be compared to anything else (p. 163).'
