The Inner Landscape of Beauty
A friend of mine sent me a link to this 2007 interview with the late Irish Catholic Priest, Poet, and Philosopher John O’Donohue. I didn’t know anything about John O’Donohue prior to listening to this interview, I wish I had a chance to see him in person. Full audio below:
The Irish poet and philosopher John O’Donohue was beloved for his book Anam Ċara, Gaelic for “soul friend,” and for his insistence on beauty as a human calling and a defining aspect of God. In one of his last interviews before his death in 2008, he articulated a Celtic imagination about how the material and the spiritual, the visible and the invisible worlds intertwine in human experience.
