Spring: A Journal of Archetype and Culture and Spring Journal Books

Analytical Psychology & Contemporary Culture

A New Book Series from Spring

In our rapidly changing contemporary world, analytical psychology is confronted ever anew with the challenge of remaining relevant. To take on this challenge, Spring Journal Books has created a new series under the title Analytical Psychology & Contemporary Culture. The goal of the series is to bring analytical psychology into a cross-fertilizing dialogue with the fundamental issues of our time. The series will explore the multiple, interpenetrating relationships between history, mythology, politics, economics, sociology, and the arts as they express themselves in contemporary culture. At the heart of our mission is the creative exploration of the psyche’s response to a world in rapid transition from the evolving perspectives of analytical psychology.

Series Editor: Thomas Singer, M.D.
Dr. Singer has long been interested in this interface as reflected in the topics he has addressed in his books and articles. He has reflected on baseball as a college player, a lifelong fan, and as a Jungian analyst in his A Fan's Guide to Baseball Fever. He has been a student of the interface between politics, social conflict, and Jungian psychology in his books, The Vision Thing and The Cultural Complex. He has written on the relationship between modern psychiatry and Jungian psychology in Who's the Patient Here? He has contributed articles focusing on contemporary film (Spielberg's Munich) and modern opera (John Adam's Dr. Atomic). Drawing on his keen interest in contemporary culture and the tradition of analytical psychology, Dr. Singer will be developing this new series with an eye to all the different arenas of social, political, economic, legal, and cultural life in which a Jungian perspective might be relevant.
