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: Jungian Psychology/Research

In this clear and readable book, the authors show that research guided by the soul is rich, passionate, and meaningful. Borrowing from their expertise as scholars and teachers, they blend philosophy and practice to describe what scholarly research undertaken from the perspective of the soul might look like and to account for the exceptional experience of psychological inquiry at its best. The third, expanded edition includes two new chapters. The new second chapter offers a basic introduction to depth psychology for thoughtful, inquisitive readers, one that follows its connections to myth, religion, and indigenous practices of healing. A new seventh chapter on deep writing explores qualities such as beauty, craft, the fluidity and precision of language, and soulful communion between author and reader. This edition also enlarges the scope of the conversation by including more expert voices, including philosophers, poets, and novelists as well as scholars of religion, anthropology, mythology, and neurobiology.

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.
