Depth Psychology and the Digital Age

$17.99

Google "the digital age" and you'll discover it is rather broadly defined as "the present time"-when most information is available in digital form, as compared to the era before the rise of computers in the 1970s. Depth psychology is the study of the soul, first and foremost associated with uncovering and exploring the unconscious. The Greek word psyche means "butterfly," and is linked to the Greek anemos, meaning "wind" or "breath," as well as "soul" and "spirit"-all concepts that seem distinctly unrelated to technology, yet this diverse and compelling collection of depth psychological insights quickly reveals the archetypal aspects at work on all of us in the depths of the digital age. For one of the founders of modern depth psychology, Carl Gustav Jung, who was born in 1875 and died in 1961, the "digital age" remained in potentia, but even more than half a century ago, he had significant concerns about the challenges of a growing mind/matter split and the excessive focus of western cultures in particular on science, technology, and rational thinking. Jung believed this trend toward "modernity" emerged at the expense of more soulful, reflective, poetic ways of being and issued a strong caution against our increasing reliance on machines and technology. He warned of severe consequences that might ultimately propel our civilization toward collapse, unless modernity could be adequately acknowledged and dealt with from a psychological view. The rapid growth of technology in recent decades, combined with what is arguably a decided lack of psychological context around it, has contributed intensively to concerns for some regarding the speed and quantity of information we and our capacity to navigate such a tsunami of data. Technology has profoundly amplified the speed and efficiency at which we accomplish certain tasks, but at the same time has served to expedite the very pace of our lives, leaving us with little time for reflection and reconnection with things of the soul. Technology alone will never be that thing that enlivens us, enforces our sense of soul in a fast-moving world, and roots us in something which is inherently already there. With the proliferation of digital advances in an increasingly globalized culture, we tend to take "technologies" lightly, without giving them their proper ritual due. In earth-based cultures, "technologies of the sacred" have always encompassed ceremonies, invocations, and rites that created containers in which something very special could occur. Shamanism was only practiced within the proper context by individuals who were designated and prepared to enter sacred space. Over time as the ritual has been lost, the container has also crumbled, and technology is no longer wielded in sacred space but rather is used haphazardly by virtually all members of our society. What is asked for is that we re-boot our understanding of the psychological and soulful aspects of technology in order to adopt a new way of being in a digital world. Social media, video gaming, virtual reality, digital media, screen time, mobile devices, electronic music, "smart" technology, and electronic waste are all everyday imperatives in our current culture, and will continue to be future realities for decades, if not centuries, to come. While the digital age will always produce consternation, scintillation, and debate, no matter the pace of growth or decline, the essays and themes that appear in this collection are timeless, tapping into underlying ideas that can offer context and meaning for generations to come. The authors in this anthology proffer a chance to redeem ourselves, to re-invent our relationship to the digital age and re-infuse these sacred tools with meaning and soul. The details of our technologies may morph, but the contents of this volume are profoundly archetypal, offering patterns upon which we may predicate our own relationship to the depths and breadths of the digital age

Jung in Love: The Mysterium in Liber Novus

product image
$10.95

Love was the great mystery in C. G. Jung's life. His confrontation with love for a woman and a feminine soul animated the composition of Jung's great Red Book, the book he formally titled Liber Novus.

C. G. Jung's relationships with women during these central years of life have generated several commentaries and critiques. But the power and depth of love has figured little in most of the romances about this period patched together by biographers, dramatists, and psychoanalysts. In consequence, a crux experience of Jung's life has been miscast and little understood.

Three decades after the events chronicled in his Red Book, C. G. Jung turned to writing a commentary on the still hidden records. In Jung in Love, Lance Owens illustrates how Jung's four last books -- his "last quartet" of major works published after 1945 -- are summary statements about his experiences during the years he labored with Liber Novus.

Owens illustrates how in the first volume of this "last quartet" -- The Psychology of the Transference, published in 1946 -- Jung employed a sixteenth-century alchemical text to provide context for what is in fact a statement about his own experience with love recounted both in his private journals and in Liber Novus.

Based on long-sequestered documentary sources, Jung in Love offers a balanced and historically contextualized account of Jung's relationships with four women during the years that led him into the visionary experiences recorded in the Red Book: Emma Jung-Rauschenbach, Sabina Spielrein, Maria Moltzer and Toni Wolff.

Jung in Love - The Mysterium in Liber Novus was originally published as a chapter in Das Rote Buch - C. G. Jungs Reise zum anderen Pol der Welt, ed. Thomas Arzt (Verlag Königshausen & Neumann, 2015). This English monograph edition adds illustrations and minor corrections to the previously published edition.

C. G. Jung on Love (from Jung in Love - The Mysterium in Liber Novus):

It is my misfortune that I cannot live without the joy of love, of tempestuous, ever-changing love in my life.
- 1908, Letter to Sabina Spielrein

Salome loves me, do I love her? I hear wild music, a tambourine, a sultry moonlit night, the bloody-staring head of the holy one - fear seizes me.
- 1914, Liber Novus

Who exhausts the mystery of love? ... There are those who love men, and those who love the souls of men, and those who love their own soul. Such a one is PHILEMON, the host of the Gods.
- 1914, Liber Novus

What occurs between the lover and the beloved is the entire fullness of the Godhead. Both are unfathomable riddles to each other. For who understands the Godhead?
- 1920, Black Book Journal

The problem of love seems to me a monster of a mountain which, for all my experience, has always soared to still greater heights whenever I thought I had almost reached the top.
- 1922, Letter to Theodor Bovet

I falter before the task of finding the language which might ade- quately express the incalculable paradoxes of love.
- 1961, Memories, Dreams, Reflections

Cycle of Life: Themes and Tales of the Journey

product image
$25.00

"The art of life is the most distinguished and rarest of all the arts." -C.G. Jung, CW 8, par. 789. The Cycle of Life explores the patterns that unfold over the course of our lives, as we set out to find our place in the world, in our efforts to live authentically, and in our search for home-that place within ourselves that can so easily be neglected or disregarded in this fast-paced modern world. In the first half of life, the task of the young traveler is to depart from home, to adventure out into the world to find his or her own individual path. However, in the second half, we find ourselves on what often amounts to a very long journey in search of home. In many a tale, the hero, for instance Gilgamesh, sets off on his road to find life's elixir, while other stories, such as the Odyssey, revolve around the hero's long and arduous journey home. Many are also familiar with the journey of Dante, who at the very beginning of his Divine Comedy finds himself "Midway along the journey of our life." The archetypal journey of life is constantly reenacted in the never-ending process of individuation. We find ourselves returning to this venture repeatedly, every night, as we set out on our voyage into the landscape of our unconscious. Many dreams begin by being on the way, for instance: I am on my way to ... I am driving on a road that leads into the desert ... I am walking through one room after the other in a long corridor-like building ... I am walking towards my office, but it looks different than in reality ... I walk on the pavement and on the opposite side of the street someone seems to be following me ... I go down into an underground parking ... I am in my car, but someone I don't know is driving ... I have to go to the place from where I came ... Erel Shalit is a Jungian psychoanalyst in Ra'anana, Israel. He is the author of several publications, including Enemy, Cripple, Beggar: Shadows in the Hero's Path, The Hero and His Shadow: Psychopolitical Aspects of Myth and Reality in Israel, The Complex: Path of Transformation from Archetype to Ego, and Requiem: A Tale of Exile and Return. Dr. Shalit lectures at professional institutes, universities, and cultural forums in Israel, Europe, and the United States.

CG Jung A Biography in Books

$65.00

In 1912, C. G. Jung wrote, "Should it happen that all traditions in the world were cut off with a single blow, the whole mythology and history of religion would start over again with the succeeding generation."With this, Jung gave new understanding to the concept of world literature: that the history of human thought lay in the soul, passed from generation to generation, always ready to reemerge.

This book shows how Jung's theory evolved through classics of Western literature, annotated books from his library, manuscripts of his Black Books and The Red Book, other major works in which he attempted to translate insights from The Red Book for a scientific public, the Gnostic and alchemical texts he studied and presented as parallels to his psychology of the unconscious, and Eastern texts he presented in collaboration with leading scholars, establishing a cross-cultural psychology of the process of higher development.

Analysis and Activism: Social and Political Contributions of Jungian Psychology

$52.95

Jungian psychology has taken a noticeable political turn in the recent years, and analysts and academics whose work draws on Jung's ideas have made internationally recognised contributions in many humanitarian, communal and political contexts. This book brings together a multidisciplinary and international selection of contributors, all of whom have track records as activists, to discuss some of the most compelling issues in contemporary politics.

Analysis and Activism

is presented in six parts:

  • Section One, Interventions, includes discussion of what working outside the consulting room means, and descriptions of work with displaced children in Colombia, projects for migrants in Italy and of an analyst's engagement in the struggles of indigenous Australians.
  • Section Two, Equalities and Inequalities, tackles topics ranging from the collapse of care systems in the UK to working with victims of torture.
  • Section Three, Politics and Modernity, looks at the struggles of native people in Guatemala and Canada and oral history interviews with members of the Chinese/Vietnamese diaspora.
  • Section Four, Culture and Identity, studies issues of race and class in Brazil, feminism and the gendered imagination, and the introduction of Obamacare in the USA.
  • Section Five, Cultural Phantoms, examines the continuing trauma of the Cultural Revolution in China, Jung's relationship with Jews and Judaism, and German-Jewish dynamics.
  • Finally, Section Six, Nature: Truth and Reconciliation, looks at our broken connection to nature, town and country planning, and relief work after the 2011 earthquake in Japan.
  • There remains throughout the book an acknowledgement that the project of thinking forward the political in Jungian psychology can be problematic, given Jung's own questionable political history. What emerges is a radical and progressive Jungian approach to politics informed by the spirit of the times as well as by the spirit of the depths.

    This cutting-edge collection will be essential reading for Jungian and post-Jungian academics and analysts, psychotherapists, counsellors and psychologists, and academics and students of politics, sociology, psychosocial studies and cultural studies.

    Soul's Code: In Search of Character and Calling

    $17.00

    "[An] acute and powerful vision . . . offers a renaissance of humane values."--Thomas Moore, author of Care of the Soul and The Re-Enchantment of Everyday Life

    Plato called it "daimon," the Romans "genius," the Christians "guardian angel"; today we use such terms as "heart," "spirit," and "soul." While philosophers and psychologists from Plato to Jung have studied and debated the fundamental essence of our individuality, our modern culture refuses to accept that a unique soul guides each of us from birth, shaping the course of our lives. In this extraordinary bestseller, James Hillman presents a brilliant vision of our selves, and an exciting approach to the mystery at the center of every life that asks, "What is it, in my heart, that I must do, be, and have? And why?"

    Drawing on the biographies of figures such as Ella Fitzgerald and Mohandas K. Gandhi, Hillman argues that character is fate, that there is more to each individual than can be explained by genetics and environment. The result is a reasoned and powerful road map to understanding our true nature and discovering an eye-opening array of choices--from the way we raise our children to our career paths to our social and personal commitments to achieving excellence in our time.

    Praise for The Soul's Code

    "Champions a glorious sort of rugged individualism that, with the help of an inner daimon (or guardian angel), can triumph against all odds."--The Washington Post Book World

    "[A] brilliant, absorbing work . . . Hillman dares us to believe that we are each meant to be here, that we are needed by the world around us."--Publishers Weekly

    Psychology's Dream of the Courtroom

    $32.95

    Psychology and the law have long maintained a collegial association with one another as adjacent disciplines. In the criminal justice system, for example, psychologists and psychiatrists serve regularly as expert witnesses, providing insight into the motivations and mental status of accused and convicted persons. But what about the reverse of this relation? What contribution has "the law" made to the work of analyst and patient in the consulting room? And what insights may be drawn from putting psychology itself on trial? In this ground-breaking book, the use of legal metaphors and the courtroom analogy by Freud, Jung, and psychology more generally are examined in relation to the practice psychotherapy and analysis. In this way, psychoanalysis and analytical psychology are shown in fresh perspective to be disciplines of truth in the spirit of a trial or court proceeding.

    Platonic Jung

    product image
    $26.00

    How does Jung model his psychology on Plato's philosophy? The Platonic Jung gives us a clear look at the remarkable similarities between the two, particularly in the structure of the cosmos and psyche, and in the nature of the self. The individual self is identified as soul in each system, and it is placed in what both Jung and Plato call the "third," a level of being located in-between the divine Self or One, and the ego complex or sense based self. Practicing the work of individuation in Jung or philosophy in Plato, which are also shown to be similar paths of development, a person is able to unite the opposites in the lower self. Thus, by healing the conflicts inherent in psychological injury, consciousness is developed in soul and its subtle body. The transcendent function is the cornerstone of individuation in Jung, and we learn here that he included an energetic aspect of transformation in the function, which is actually responsible for the movement of consciousness from ego-complex into soul in the third.

    Developing the self through philosophy or individuation involves a unity of the psyche that creates an inner state Dr. Weldon calls dual-unity, where the individual soul is simultaneously aware of the ego or sense based world below and the divine One or Self above. Plato referred to this state as the realization of the macrocosm within the microcosm and Jung mirrors this in his idea of wholeness. After doing the theoretical work of showing us the root of Jung in Plato, the book also includes a chapter on how to practice analytically orientated psychotherapy using the framework of the individual self as soul. In the first chapter Dr. Weldon shares her own experience of consciousness in soul and subtle body, all of which ultimately called her to this project. The Platonic Jung re-unites philosophy and psychology and expresses the message these two great men imparted to the world--that the soul is the true self, and is worth finding.

    Ages of Anxiety: Jung's Types as Inspiration for Poetry, Music, and Dance

    $29.95

    Craig Stephenson draws on depth psychology to provide an original and profound study of W. H. Auden's Pulitzer Prize winning poem, The Age of Anxiety. In this dramatic poem, Auden draws on Jung's psychological typology to explore and develop the themes of identity and integrity in times of war. Stephenson examines Auden's use of Jung's critical psychology of type to understand the traumatic effects of war on the individual and collective psyche, as well as the noxious attractions of fascism. In this light, Stephenson also examines Leonard Bernstein's symphony, The Age of Anxiety (Symphony No. 2 for Piano and Orchestra), inspired by Auden's poem, and three ballets based on Bernstein's music, choreographed by Jerome Robbins (New York City Ballet), John Neumeier (Hamburg Ballet), and Liam Scarlett (Royal Ballet, London).

    Using all these creative works as points for reflection, Stephenson surveys historically the concept of "anxiety," from Kierkegaard through five editions of the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). Interweaving Auden's exploration of the twentieth-century mind with Jungian depth psychology, Stephenson extrapolates forward into our time, with its mounting political tensions and escalating intolerance, and inquires into the sufferings currently diagnosed as "anxiety" and their significance.

    Relationship Between CG Jung and Erich Neumann Based on Their Correspondence

    $19.95

    With the rise of Adolf Hitler and the National Socialist Party in Germany, Erich Neumann, who had just finished his medical studies, was forbidden, as were all his Jewish colleagues, from completing his final practicum year and obtaining his medical degree. He took his small family and left Germany in 1933 to work with C. G. Jung in Switzerland. In 1934, young Micha and his mother immigrated to Palestine, and Erich followed them several months later. He established himself as a Jungian analyst and began writing in German about his Jewish experience and Jungian ideas, while keeping up a lifelong correspondence with Jung.
    Micha Neumann, himself a psychiatrist, offers us a personal glimpse into the complicated relationship between his father, Erich Neumann, and C. G. Jung. Whereas Freud was the elder in his relationship with Jung, in the relationship between Jung and Erich Neumann, Jung was the elder.
    Micha Neumann, who learned of the letters only after both his parents were gone, comments: "I remember how my father spoke about Jung, whom he adored and loved. When I read the correspondence between them, I could compare the father-son relationship between Jung and Neumann, which was very fruitful and positive, where Freud's attitude toward his young disciple Jung was negative and castrating."
    Based on the letters of Jung and Neumann, which have been recently published, along with the impressions Micha Neumann gleaned from his parents, this book provides a framework for this correspondence and provides additional insight into a rich, personal dimension of their complicated relationship.

    On Psychological and Visionary Art: Notes from C. G. Jung's Lecture on Gerard de Nerval's "Aurelia"

    $35.00

    In 1945, at the end of the Second World War and after a long illness, C. G. Jung delivered a lecture in Zürich on the French Romantic poet Gérard de Nerval. The lecture focused on Nerval's visionary memoir, Aurélia, which the poet wrote in an ambivalent attempt to emerge from madness. Published here for the first time, Jung's lecture is both a cautionary psychological tale and a validation of Nerval's visionary experience as a genuine encounter.

    Nerval explored the irrational with lucidity and exquisite craft. He privileged the subjective imagination as a way of fathoming the divine to reconnect with what the Romantics called the life principle. During the years of his greatest creativity, he suffered from madness and was institutionalized eight times. Contrasting an orthodox psychoanalytic interpretation with his own synthetic approach to the unconscious, Jung explains why Nerval was unable to make use of his visionary experiences in his own life. At the same time, Jung emphasizes the validity of Nerval's visions, differentiating the psychology of a work of art from the psychology of the artist. The lecture suggests how Jung's own experiments with active imagination influenced his reading of Nerval's Aurélia as a parallel text to his own Red Book.

    With Craig Stephenson's authoritative introduction, Richard Sieburth's award-winning translation of Aurélia, and Alfred Kubin's haunting illustrations to the text, and featuring Jung's reading marginalia, preliminary notes, and revisions to a 1942 lecture, On Psychological and Visionary Art documents the stages of Jung's creative process as he responds to an essential Romantic text.

    Conversing with James Hillman City & Soul

    $21.95

    We might begin by asking why did James Hillman talk and write enough about the city to fill an entire volume, City & Soul, of his Uniform Edition? [In] America in the late twentieth century we had grown careless and had allowed so many of our major metropolises to fall into decline. One of the unique contributions to Western civilization that the city-state of Athens made in the classic era was appreciation for the cohesion of the city. . . .[We] kept reimagining what a city, a lively one could be. We reminded ourselves that it was indeed possible to bring back the bustling energy that had fled the center. . . . Not only does James Hillman have much to add to the knowledge of the experience of life in the city, but he also leaves us with much to further question. My hope is that this new book, Conversing with James Hillman, will provide that opportunity for readers. - Joanne H. Stroud From the James Hillman Symposium held at The Dallas Instititue of Humanities and Culture on his book City & Soul - Hillman's writings on the psychology of public affairs: urbanism, environmental aesthetics, citizenship, and politics. The essays and talks divide into four groups: Patient as Citizen; Politics of Beauty; Places of Practice; and Responsive Environmentalism. (color images of the symposium) Conversing with James Hillman includes works by: James Hillman, Gustavo Barcellos, Gustavo Beck, Scott Becker, Tom Cheetham, Matthew Green, Nor Hall, Jonathan Harrell, Sarah Jackson, Robert Leaver, Klaus Ottmann, Robert Romanyshyn, Cheryl Sanders-Sardello, Robert Sardello, Randolph Severson, Dennis Slattery, Joanne H.

    Europe's Many Souls: Exploring Cultural Complexes and Identities

    product image
    $32.95

    What is going on in Europe? In this book a number of outstanding Jungian Analysts explore the Cultural Complexes and Identities of their European homelands and nations. This is a new approach to old questions: What makes a people feel at home? How do their traditions and narratives form a cultural Self and identity? How do they differ from one another? Exploring cultural complexes as a part of answering these important questions requires knowledge of history, economics, sociology, anthropology, geography, psychology, religious studies, literature and poetry. But as every complex is built around an emotional core, the study of how cultural complexes live in the psyche is not limited to these disciplines. Each author and reader engages in a confrontation with their emotions, prejudices, and projections. The shape that the ideas and feelings of a cultural complex take in the psyche can be inchoate, rapidly shifting and yet paradoxically long standing, and often quite immune and impermeable to the reason that traditional disciplines of thought would impose on them. These cultural complexes do not necessarily provide a coherent or linear sequencing of facts and events because that is not how they actually exist and function in the psyche of individuals and groups. At the same time, cultural complexes shape what it means to be a citizen of a particular city, region, or country of Europe. They contribute to Europe's Many Souls.

    From Tradition to Innovation: Jungian Analysts Working in Different Cultural Settings Clin W16

    $32.95

    This compilation of sixteen chapters gives a fascinating account of the wide variety of experiences of Jungian analysts working in different cultures across the world - for example in Russia, China, Poland, Lithuania, South Africa and Mexico. The contributors describe and reflect on their experiences both of offering and receiving training within these cross-cultural professional partnerships. The book shows the expansion of distance learning models in analytical psychology, in particular in so-called "shuttle" programs which have been developed by analysts travelling widely over the past 20 years under the auspices of the International Association for Analytical Psychology (IAAP). The authors give detailed accounts from both sides of the mutual encounters and challenges between different cultures, often coloured by recent history including social trauma. This is a book not only about training but is also an enlightening cultural commentary for our times. The powerful bi-directionality of cultural influence and discovery is apparent in different ways in every chapter. By locating new training programs not in long-established institutions but within developing groups in other cultures, traditional models of training have been challenged by different therapeutic environments. Often this has led to imaginative, innovative ways of learning - as vividly detailed in the chapters. It also prompts a necessary re-appraisal of which concepts feel to be essential to the core values of our Jungian practice and which show an outdated adherence to culture-bound attitudes. The publication of this book is a timely reminder that when psychoanalysis and Jungian analysis as we know it is floundering in some Western countries, new projects in countries seeking to develop an analytic culture give hope for sustaining our professional practice. This book contains the voices of both seasoned and recently qualified analysts; well-known and new authors. The contributors come from nine countries including Russia, Poland, Israel, the UK, the USA, Lithuania, Germany, Switzerland and Italy.

    Jungian Odyssey Series Volume VII 2014 the Crucible of Failure

    product image
    $24.95

    This volume ensues from the 9th Jungian Odyssey retreat, inspired by Grindelwald, a village lying in a green hollow high within the Bernese Alps. As training analysts and scholarly guests of the International School of Analytical Psychology, the authors address students, clinicians, and all others with interest in C.G. Jung. The (in)famous trio of mountains that commands the historic retreat locale could tell of climbers who risked their lives ascending to formidable heights-some to successful ends and others failing tragically. Grindelwald itself became a literal cauldron of violent change in 1892, when it was nearly decimated by fire. Invoking the genius loci, Polly Young-Eisendrath proposes, "Our inherent brokenness provides a primary way to embrace our imperfect species and the imperfect world on which we depend." The authors generally agree that, as a collective, we are bent on Icarus-like heights, prone to follow the hubristic ego. How might we learn to renunciate success? For all the shame involved, can we grasp failure as the need for a paradigm shift? Explorations ensue from case work in the analytic consulting room, from field work with refugees, from history, myth, fairy tale, and even mountaineering itself. Ultimately readers of this volume are invited to consider that, "life has to be undone, and one often gets to truth through error. . . . So be human, seek understanding, seek insight . . ." -C.G. Jung

    Jung in the Academy and Beyond The Fordham Lectures 100 Years Later

    product image
    $32.95

    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.

    Spring 92, Eranos: Its Magical Past and Alluring Future, The Spirit of a Wondrous Place

    $32.95

    Spring is delighted to publish this special issue on Eranos, founded in Ascona, Switzerland by Olga Frobe-Kapteyn in 1933. Spring has had a longing-standing connection to Eranos, and has published through the decades articles by many of the key figures who presented at the Eranos conferences, including works by C. G. Jung, Karl Kerenyi, Mircea Eliade, Heinrich Zimmer, Erich Neumann, Henry Corbin, Adolf Portmann, Alfred Ziegler, Gilbert Durand, James Hillman, Rudolf Ritsema, David Miller, and Wolfgang Giegerich. Eranos's pioneering endeavor of interdisciplinary conferences has been properly recognized as "one of the most creative cultural experiences in the modern Western world" and "one of the richest centers of intellectual and spiritual interchange known to our century." Its influence has been documented in a number of fields of knowledge ranging from psychology to the history of religions, from philosophy to Eastern studies, from theology to anthropology, and from biology to physics. Many of the talks given at Eranos shaped the works of some of most influential scholars of the twentieth century. Moreover, the Eranos Archive for Research in Symbolism served as the iconographic support for fundamental studies in Jungian thought and psychology. Despite the enormous amount of intellectual work, thus far only three journals have published special issues dedicated to Eranos. There has been, in fact, a singular lack of balance between Eranos's cultural importance and the attention paid to it in scholarly literature. Ultimately, even without gathering strictly historiographical works on the topic, this issue of Spring is meant to propose a reflection and a discussion on Eranos from various points of view. A first series of contributions, gathered under the title, "The Eranos Phenomenon," mainly offers an interpretation of Eranos from a historical perspective. A second series of essays, "Eranos and the Psychological Tradition," deal with Eranos's contribution to Jung's thought and then to the development of analytical psychology. The third section, "Eranos and the Idea of the Sacred," gathers a series of articles that deal with Eranos's view of the religious issues and the study of the sacred. A fourth group of articles deal with the "Philosophical Perspectives of Eranos." Lastly, a fifth series of writings, "Eranos and the Unity of Psyche and Matter," delve into Eranos's contribution to the dialogue between human sciences and natural sciences as well as between the theoretical speculation and the need for concrete answers to some crucial problems of the world we are living. This issue of Spring also includes an ample iconographic section with more than fifty photographs from the Eranos Foundation Archives, many never before published. They are products of Eranos photographers Margarita Marianne (Margarethe) Fellerer (1886- 1961), Tim N. Gidal (1909-1996), and Luciano Soave. The volume closes with a bibliographical appendix comprising a list of the Eranos Yearbooks (1933-2014) and of the Eranos Round Table Sessions (1990-2002), as well as of the proceedings of the Associazione Amici di Eranos (1990-2012) and of the Verein zur Forderung der wissenschaftlichen Tagungen von Eranos (2001-2014)."

    Contemplative Approach to Understanding World Religions C G Jung as Phenomenologist of the Soul

    product image
    $32.95

    How does one understand a religion not one's own? In our politically and culturally diverse and divisive times, where religious identities create tension and conflict internationally and in our own backyards, Blake Burleson addresses this most relevant of questions. Inspired by the psychology of C. G. Jung, Burleson pioneers a contemplative phenomenology which values both the paticularity and universality of the world's religions. In an age in which inter-religious dialogue is of greatest importance, this book will appeal to teachers, students, and seekers of religion alike.

    Spring 91 Fall 2014 Women's Voices

    $25.95

    The inspiration for this volume was the most recent book written by American writer, naturalist, and environmental activist Terry Tempest Williams and entitled When Women Were Birds: Fifty-four Variations on Voice. We are very honored that Terry Tempest Williams herself agreed to be interviewed for this volume. Her interview comes first and sets the tone for the articles that follow, as she explores in detail issues related to voice that were discussed in When Women Were Birds. Contained within this volume are articles that deal with the psychological issues that arise when women attempt to express themselves, the obstacles faced, the obstacles overcome (or not), the creativity that may released. Included are both clinical articles, as well as personal and more academic papers. In When Women Were Birds, Terry Tempest Williams asks, "What needs to be counted on to have a voice? Courage. Anger. Love. Something to say; someone to listen." The sixteen contributors to this volume recognize and demonstrate, directly or indirectly, the truth of Terry Tempest Williams' observation. They come from different places and from different backgrounds. They are writers, poets, teachers, analysts, educators, and theorists. Their writing styles vary accordingly, yet their works share similar themes, from the deeply personal to the cultural and historical, from the literary to the mythological and spiritual. Terry Tempest Williams' statement also implies a necessary bond between speaker and listener, or as in this case, author and reader, and it is our hope that this Women's Voices issue of Spring will encourage such a mutually inspired relationship.
