Politics could also be imagined as work of the anima, with emphasis on imagination, caretaking, and depth of vision. Imagine, for example, a political science department in a university shifting its attention to soul issues, leaving behind its critical, argumentative, and analytical style, becoming interested in the myth and poetry of political language, the emotional needs of citizens, and the role of art and beauty in the life of the culture. The politician courageous enough to explore the soul of this activity might also discover its depth and spiritual dimensions.
