The Sleuth and the Goddess
The Sleuth and the Goddess:

Hestia, Artemis, Athena, And Aphrodite in Women’s Detective Fiction

By Susan Rowland

"Detective fiction is compelling–once started it has to be finished: The Sleuth and the Goddess is no less gripping. In this riveting book Susan Rowland is part detective, part analyst, and always a brilliant literary critic.  She adroitly reveals how detection is one of the central myths of the modern psyche.  The crime scenes she investigates reveal their psychological and literary clues to show how the re-emergence of the sacred feminine is at the center of women’s mystery detective stories.  Never cozy, never hardboiled, this is cultural psychology at its very best."

Jung in the Academy and Beyond:

The Fordham Lectures 100 Years Later

Edited by Mark E. Mattson, Frederick J. Wertz, Harry Fogarty, Margaret Klenck, and Beverley Zabriskie

C. G. Jung delivered a ground-breaking and influential series of lectures at Fordham University in 1912. In many ways, the lectures laid out the future development of his work as well as his movement away from Freud. Fordham University, in collaboration with the Jungian Psychoanalytic Association of New York, honored the 1912 Jung lectures with a conference that sought to locate Jung in the Academy and beyond—in the years when the lectures were delivered and published, in today’s academic and clinical world, and into the future, with speculations and insights into the trends of psychological and scientific research and understanding. This book is an expanded proceedings of this conference, and gives us hope—hope that Jungian thought is alive in the Academy, where both will find enrichment, hope that the misunderstandings and old wounds within the depth psychological world may finally be healed, and hope for even more fruitful conversation among current scientific explorations, theological reflections, political concerns, and analytical psychology.
