המחזיר נשמות

Yall may remember my post אלוהיי נשמה from almost three weeks ago about an article in the Autumn 5766/2005 issue of Azure. In Soul of Fire: A Theory of Biblical Man, Ethan Dor-Shav describes a theory of the soul based on a close reading of the different uses of terms for 'soul' in the Tanakh.

Anyway, as an aid to help me remember the theory (since it's so cool), I made up a convenient table, charting out the different souls, elements, and associations laid out in Dor-Shav's article.

And guess what?

Only a few days later, I get an email from the Shalem Center — the people who publish Azure — saying that the article's author appreciated the chart I made! They also encouraged me to write a letter to the editor, but the one question I had about the content of the article was quickly answered by pointing me to the footnotes. They also offered to send me a free copy of the issue with the article in it!

My Azure arrived yesterday.

Thanks, Shalem Center people!

Yasher koach. Once more, the internet successfully spreads both pearls of Torah wisdom and good will among complete strangers.
