About the Author:

The pioneering imaginative psychology of James Hillman that soon will span five decades has entered cultural history, affecting lives and minds in a wide range of fields. For the creativity of his thinking, the originator of Archetypal Psychology and author of A Terrible Love of War; The Soul's Code; and The Force of Character has received many honors, including the Medal of the Presidency of the Italian Republic. He has held distinguished lectureships at Yale, Princeton, Chicago, and Syracuse Universities, and his books have been translated into some twenty languages. The American public showed its appreciation of his approach to psychology by placing his book, The Soul's Code, at the top of the bestseller list of serious works of nonfiction. Of his many books, Spring Publications has published Anima, Loose Ends, Archetypal Psychology: A Brief Account, Pan and the Nightmare, Suicide and the Soul, Insearch, Oedipus Variations (with Karl Kerényi), The Thought of the Heart and the Soul of the World, Inter Views, and Lectures on Jung's Typology (with Marie-Louise von Franz). He lives in Connecticut.

Review:

Insearch: Psychology and Religion is one of the few enduring descriptions of Jungian therapy in its relation to religion. In four insightful chapters (The Human Encounter, The Unconscious as Experience, The Inner Morality of the Shadow, and The Inner Feminine or Anima) James Hillman gives a comprehensive account of Jungian psychology. His examples are fresh, his language easy, and the evident pleasure he takes in opening the great questions of the soul make Insearch a basic text and seminal work, an introduction to psychotherapy and a consistently quoted reference for pastoral counseling. --Midwest Book Review

Book Description Spring Publications,U.S., United States, 1998. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. From the book: One day in Zurich, I watched a woman being interviewed. She sat in a wheelchair because she was elderly and feeble. She said that she was dead for she had lost her heart. The psychiatrist asked her to place her hand over hery breast to feel her heart beating: it must still be there if she could feel its beat. That, she said, is not my real heart. She and the psychiatrist looked at each other. There was nothing more to say. Like the primitive who has lost his soul, she had lost the loving courageous connection to life - and that is the real heart.I believe the primative and the woman in the hospital: we can and do lose our souls. I believe with Jung that each of us is modern man in search of a soul. From the Author s new Postscript: Maybe the soul isn t lost; it s just elsewhere, otherwise engaged. Maybe it s more involved with the way of the world than with your path of individuation. Maybe it s not too concerned with human relationships, human moods, human personality development. From the evidence of archaic peoples and ancient philosophies, soul was never altogether in the human arena. But its absence from that arena doesn t mean that it s lost.Why are we numb to the soul in things other than ourselves? Why are we dumb to speak to and with this soul out there? Is it really lost, or fiercely defended against? What investment has our culture in its locus only inside us, and is search with all its collaterals like journey, trials, and guides the right term for reestablishing connection? Might it not be far simpler just to step outside, or walk around your room, and do what the Psalmist said: O taste and see. Soul is in, or is, the very first matter to hand.
