PHILOSOPHY OF REVELATION (1841–42)
and Related Texts

Edited, translated, and with an introduction

Paperback original, $32 USD
384 pages
First edition
ISBN: 978-0-88214-066-7

Kindle/iBooks edition, $9.99 USD

SUBJECT: Philosophy/Religion

The first complete translation of the 1841-42 lectures on “Philosophy and Revelation” by the important German idealist philosopher Friedrich Wilhelm Joseph Schelling (1775-1854), which until now has been largely neglected in the English-speaking world. Schelling’s “Philosophy of Revelation” was never published during his lifetime. The historically most significant 1841-42 lectures in Berlin exist only in transcriptions, which form the basis of this volume, paired with earlier writings and lectures on the subject of philosophy and religion, such as his 1798 text on “Revelation and National Education”; his 1802 Jena lecture “On the Historical Construct of Christianity”; and his 1827 inaugural lecture in Munich.

Opening the Eyes of Fire

SUBJECT: Archetypal Psychology/Religion

This book explores the status of religion in the Post-Prophetic Age, especially as seen through the eyes of the French Islamic scholar Henry Corbin. In lucid and simple prose, Cheetham explores the creative role of the imagination in the formative ground of the three great Abrahamic religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. For Corbin, engaging the soul of the world through the mediating power of the Imaginal is an act of love, a theme Cheetham expands through his analysis of such concepts as mystical poverty, contemplative knowledge, the luminosity of the earth, the theophanic vision, the Christ Angel, Incarnation, the divine sensorium, alchemical transformation, the spiritual humanism of Ivan Illich, Western iconoclasm, and the centrality of gnosis.

FROM TYPES TO IMAGES

by KLAUS OTTMANN

Hardcover, $36 USD

SUBJECT: Archetypal Psychology

Moving Jungian psychology from types to images, to an image-based archetypal psychology, is James Hillman’s concern in this volume. This volume leads from Hillman’s principal essay on typology, “Egalitarian Typologies versus the Perception of the Unique,” to his expansive “Inquiry into Image.”
  Hillman instigates an active re-visioning, re-imagining, of psychology as a self-generative activity of the soul: “An image is given by the imagining perspective and can only be perceived by an act of imagining.”

SUBJECT: Archetypal Psychology

This book is about the god who electrifies women. And the Dionysian charge that surfaces in the writings of Jungian analyst Linda Fierz-David, classicist Jane Ellen Harrison, and poet H. D. Although the scene of this work is the mystery chamber in Roman Pompeii, it really begins with the need to fathom a mystery of identity. Who were those analytical women who embraced Jung’s depth psychology with their whole lives? Why did so many of them never marry? Where did their peculiar strength come from, and why did they choose to study what they chose to study? Nor Hall here uses the ten scenes of dramatic initiation to frame the experiences of death, maenadic madness, and change that occur to women in the midlife constellation of Dionysos, the Shaker and Loosener. Along the way, her meditation—rich with images from dreams, vase paintings, poetry, biographies—considers as well “housebound” women and other constraints, the gripping experience of childbirth, and relationships with the masculine, whatever its form.
