About the Author:

Recognized internationally, Steven Herrmann has published over forty papers, several chapters, and four books, William Everson: The Shaman's Call, Walt Whitman: Shamanism, Spiritual Democracy, and the World Soul, Spiritual Democracy: The Wisdom of Early American Visionaries for the Journey Forward and Emily Dickinson: A Medicine Woman for Our Times. In 2015 he contributed a chapter "C.G. Jung and Teilhard de Chardin: Peacemakers in an Age of Spiritual Democracy" in Pierre Teilhard de Chardin and Carl Gustav Jung Side by Side, published by Fisher King Press. He has taught on the subjects of Jung, Whitman, and Melville at the C.G. Jung Institutes of San Francisco, Chicago, and Zürich, UC Berkeley, UC Santa Cruz, and on Jung and James at Yale University. Herrmann's expertise in Jungian Literary Criticism makes him one of the seminal thinkers in the international field, and a foremost authority on Whitman, Melville, and now Dickinson in post-Jungian studies.
