I am in need for some suggestions for books for a research paper I am writing for a liberal studies class. What I am looking for are any books that discuss the Orthodox Christian view of the human person. More specifically, my paper is an examination of the relationship between the mind and the heart in the Orthodox tradition. The paper also will discuss the mind in light of Sartrian existentialism, and the guiding question for the paper is "If the mind is just a stream of consciousness, then how are we solid?" In studying Sartre in the class, I noticed that Orthodoxy would agree with Sartre that the human mind and our thoughts are a process, and that to pretend that a self arising from the thoughts is a lie. Orthodoxy obviously differs though in that it does see the human person as having an essence or a center, which we would call the heart. The transcendental ego that Sartre writes against seems to be very different than what Orthodoxy teaches about the heart. So, I need some books! So far, I have "I love therefore I am" by Archimandrite Sophrony, "Monk of Mount Athos" by St Silouan, "We shall see Him as He is" by Archimandrite Sophrony, and an article by Fr Meletios Webber entitled "The Mind, the Heart, and the Way to Salvation." If anyone knows of anything else on these topics, that would be really helpful! Even ascetical texts on dealing with thoughts would be good.
