by Stanton Marlan, editor
From the Studies in Archetypal Psychology Series, Series Editor: Greg Mogenson
This unique collection of essays was inspired by the wide-ranging work of James Hillman. In keeping with the "polytheistic" spirit of archetypal psychology, Hillman's writings have enriched the entire spectrum of our cultural imagination, challenging thinkers in such diverse fields as philosophy, religion, history, mythology, language, urban studies, politics, the men's movement, feminist criticism, ethics, art, film studies, poetry, analytic practice, and more.
In this volume, Stanton Marlan brings together the work of 29 leading scholars, practitioners, and new voices as a testament to the fecundity and influence of archetypal psychology around the world. Archetypal Psychologies highlights the importance both of Hillman's original contributions and of current developments in this field. Featured in the volume are an excerpt from the developing official biography of James Hillman, a provocative current interview with Hillman, and a series of rare photographs. This work provides a fascinating exploration of the innovative ideas and current controversies generated by archetypal psychology and of how its many-faceted approach to life and culture intersects with and enriches contemporary society. It is certain to become a classic text in the field of archetypal psychology.
