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.From Publishers Weekly:
For Jungian psychoanalyst Hillman, who has won a following with such books as Re-Visioning Psychology , the psyche is a polytheistic battleground, words are carriers of soul between people and dream images are "necessary angels" demanding a response. Readers who have found Hillman's therapeutic approach impractical or abstruse will welcome this compact, highly readable anthology of his writings--edited in collaboration with Hillman and encompassing hard-to-find books, articles and lectures. The selections reveal Hillman as a systematic thinker who adopts an open-ended attitude toward the mind, seeking out mythic archetypes and fantasies at work in family conflicts, in politics, war, the workplace--and in the betrayals and raptures of love.
