Jungian And Archetypal

Relationship Between CG Jung and Erich Neumann Based on Their Correspondence

product image
$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.

Synchronicity: Nature and Psyche in an Interconnected Universe

$19.95
Also available in an open-access, full-text edition at
http://oaktrust.library.tamu.edu/handle/1969.1/88024

In 1952 C. G. Jung published a paradoxical hypothesis on synchronicity that marked an attempt to expand the western world’s conception of the relationship between nature and the psyche. Jung’s hypothesis sought to break down the polarizing cause-effect assessment of the world and psyche, suggesting that everything is interconnected. Thus, synchronicity is both "a meaningful event" and "an acausal connecting principle." Evaluating the world in this manner opened the door to "exploring the possibility of meaning in chance or random events, deciphering if and when meaning might be present even if outside conscious awareness."

Now, after contextualizing Jung’s work in relation to contemporary scientific advancements such as relativity and quantum theories, Joseph Cambray explores in this book how Jung’s theories, practices, and clinical methods influenced the current field of complexity theory, which works with a paradox similar to Jung’s synchronicity: the importance of symmetry as well as the need to break that symmetry for "emergence" to occur. Finally, Cambray provides his unique contribution to the field by attempting to trace "cultural synchronicities," a reconsideration of historical events in terms of their synchronistic aspects. For example, he examines the emergence of democracy in ancient Greece in order "to find a model of group decision making based on emergentist principles with a synchronistic core."

Playful Psyche Jugian Odyssey VIV

$24.95

This volume of essays ensues from the 6th Jungian Odyssey retreat, held at the historic Monte Verità-the Mountain of Truth-in the Canton of Ticino in the southern Swiss Alps. The authors are training analysts and scholarly guests of the International School of Analytical Psychology Zürich. The modern history of Monte Verità began in 1899 when a group of anarchists settled in this rugged terrain, vowing to re-discover "humanity's harmony with nature" and "the unity of body, soul, intellect." In time this mountain of truth emerged as a magnet for many dancers, artists, and thinkers-among them C.G. Jung himself. Carrying forward the spirit of the place, the authors of this volume observe the psyche at play in wide-ranging fields that stretch from the science laboratory to the analytic consulting room-from physics and mathematics to collective and personal catastrophe, to synchronicity, symptom, art, song, dream, myth, and the experiencing body. These seemingly far-flung contributions join in a vital persuasion: The playful psyche draws us into the "chaos of chance" and "wondrous mischance" with purpose-namely to imbue life with new meaning. The creative challenge for the ego and individuation is to sustain being at the threshold of the conscious and unconscious-or to dwell at "the edge between chaos and order, where the dance of life takes place." (I Ching)

C.G. Jung in the Humanities: Taking the Soul's Path

$24.95

C. G. Jung in the Humanities offers for the first time a comprehensive analysis of the significance of Swiss psychiatrist C.G. Jung's work to the humanities. By penetrating the secrets of the creative psyche and exploring how the individual fits into the social and psychological collective, Jung’s work offers valuable contributions to cultural theory, literature, film and the arts, history, mythology, gender, politics, religious studies and even to the complex areas where the humanities and sciences border one another. As a writer of myth, alchemy, symbolism, narrative and poetics as well as on them, Jung proves a forerunner of the new holism reflected in complexity theory and emergence theory, and offers the promise of reconciling the sciences with the arts, of man with nature.

Psyches Knife Archetypal Explorations of Love and Power

$19.95

Psyche's Knife examines the myth of Eros and Psyche as a metaphor for the development of soul in the psychology of women, explicating the tropes of love and power as depicted by Psyche's use of a knife in attempting to learn the identity of her lover. Nelson examines the metaphor of the knife from all angles-alchemical, sacrificial, lunar, phallic-and delves into the mythology and imagery of women and knives, connecting our deep past to our present lives and our possibilities for the future. Elizabeth Eowyn Nelson is core faculty and dissertation policy director at Pacifica Graduate Institute near Santa Barbara, California, where she has been teaching since 2002. She is coauthor of The Art of Inquiry (2005), which expresses many key ideas about research and the creative process centered on the living psyche. Her research interests focus on mythologies of feminine power, cultural expressions of the shadow, and somatic psychology. A professional writer and editor for thirty years, she is also a lifelong athlete, a certified massage therapist, and an avid student of the Tarot, runes, and archetypal astrology.

Psyche Speaks A Jungian Approach to Self and World

$14.99

Psyche Speaks had its origin in a dream, in the dream's poem, and in a series of strange events. Dr. Lockhart writes: "I awoke from a dream, speaking the last line of a poem..... where madness is psyche's only nurse. Later that day, as I walked along Market Street in San Francisco, I experienced a series of events that were a powerful reminder of that line, which haunts me still." It is the author's sense that the failure in modern life to nurse psyche in ourselves and in others does, in fact, open the door to madness. Madness itself becomes nurse. The dream, the poem, and that day's events have led the author to work on the problem of how to nurture psychic development in our day, which means, first of all, how to listen to psyche in the overlooked and undervalued Market Street we call every day, ordinary life. Jung perceived and taught that the psyche now, as in ages past, produces myths by which to portray its sufferings, its realities, its hopes. These images may correspond to ancient myths of other peoples and other times, byt we need also to hear those symbolic expressions of the psyche in our own time which are new or different, not contained in old stories or categories, mythical or clinical What is the psyche trying to say in our time? The author believes the new myths have to do with eros, with a new eros forming: an eros which cannot be portrayed or comprehended within old explanations, interpretations, or analyses: an eros which recognizes that psyche first and foremost wants to be heard. To hear and to tell means to keep faith with the myth-inducing quality of life and the myth-producing quality of the psyche. This eros also requires a re-casting of our normal distinctions between "inner" and "outer," for psyche seems to be speaking from a space between these realms. Dreams are visitors from this between space. Listening to and enacting the hints of such dreams will provide the welcoming eros for what the Irish poet AE called "The Pilgrim of Eternity" and for what Jung called the "Coming Guest."

Psychology's Dream of the Courtroom

product image
$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.

Surfing LA (DVD)

$34.00
Surfing LA’s principle photography was completed in one day in the spring of 2004.

The three participants spent the day touring some of Los Angeles’ oddest spots including Hyperion Wastewater Treatment Plant, The Metropolitan Detention Center, The Hollywood Forever Cemetery and of course Venice.

Bestselling author and psychologist James Hillman and famed essayist Michael Ventura spend the first half of the hour long DVD chatting about the LA mindset. Their good friend and Doors drummer John Densmore joins them the second part for further reminiscences and explorations of 60’s LA and her weird place in the world’s psyche. Surfing LA , conceived by director Kevan Jenson, corresponds with major themes in Hillman’s depth psychology. Hillman’s dictum that "conversation is consciousness" was tested here in the attempt to bottle the spontaneous intellect, wit and insight that flashes within conversation, much like improvisation in jazz.

The first title in the series "James Hillman's Fragments". These titles explore psychology as amusement, entertaining ideas with a little sparkle of inspiration.

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

Jung on Mythology (Encountering Jung Series)

$28.95


At least three major questions can be asked of myth: what is its subject matter? what is its origin? and what is its function? Theories of myth may differ on the answers they give to any of these questions, but more basically they may also differ on which of the questions they ask. C. G. Jung's theory is one of the few that purports to answer fully all three questions. This volume collects and organizes the key passages on myth by Jung himself and by some of the most prominent Jungian writers after him: Erich Neumann, Marie-Louise von Franz, and James Hillman. The book synthesizes the discovery of myth as a way of thinking, where it becomes a therapeutic tool providing an entrance to the unconscious.


In the first selections, Jung begins to differentiate his theory from Freud's by asserting that there are fantasies and dreams of an "impersonal" nature that cannot be reduced to experiences in a person's past. Jung then asserts that the similarities among myths are the result of the projection of the collective rather than the personal unconscious onto the external world. Finally, he comes to the conclusion that myth originates and functions to satisfy the psychological need for contact with the unconscious--not merely to announce the existence of the unconscious, but to let us experience it.

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 Fröbe-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 Kerényi, 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 Förderung der wissenschaftlichen Tagungen von Eranos (2001-2014).

Breaking Plates: Fracturing Fictions and Archetypal Imaginings. Published by a group of Pacifica Alumni under the Journal of Archetypal Studies.

$19.99

Four decades ago, archetypal psychology offered a different way of viewing all things psychological. As radical and useful as this move was forty years ago, however, it is time to question the sustainability of tenets like these for our contemporary world. As the highly turbulent 21st Century enters its second decade, it is time to ask ourselves “why archetypes?” and “why images?” This book explores these questions through a variety of topics, ranging from clinical psychology, death, cultural colonialism, paranoia, feminism, ecology, education, capitalism to politics. This book is committed to the fact that an archetypal approach should not estrange us from mundane reality; it should facilitate a stronger, more complex, and more active involvement with it. This is what archetypal studies are setting out to do—yes: to do.

Jung as a Writer

$42.95

Jung as a Writer traces a relationship between Jung and literature by analysing his texts using the methodology of literary theory. This investigation serves to illuminate the literary nature of Jung’s writing in order to shed new light on his psychology and its relationship with literature as a cultural practice.

Jung employed literary devices throughout his writing, including direct and indirect argument, anecdote, fantasy, myth, epic, textual analysis and metaphor. Susan Rowland examines Jung’s use of literary techniques in several of his works, including Anima and Animus, On the Nature of the Psyche, Psychology and Alchemy and Synchronicity and describes Jung’s need for literature in order to capture in writing his ideas about the unconscious. Jung as a Writer succeeds in demonstrating Jung’s contribution to literary and cultural theory in autobiography, gender studies, postmodernism, feminism, deconstruction and hermeneutics and concludes by giving a new culturally-orientated Jungian criticism.

The application of literary theory to Jung’s works provides a new perspective on Jungian Psychology that will be of interest to anyone involved in the study of Jung, Psychoanalysis, literary theory and cultural studies.

EVOCATIONS OF ABSENCE

product image
$22.95

If absence is the most compelling form of presence, then emptiness is pregnant with fullness, and the Void is not a place of darkness, but of potentially healing light. That is the unifying theme and underlying message of this wide-ranging collection of essays, brought together in this volume. The essays are drawn from fields as diverse as music, art, poetry, religion, neurobiology, dance/movement therapy, and philosophy, and many are written against the backdrop of Jungian psychotherapy. While each of the contributors brings his or her own unique perspective-and, in some cases, personal experience-to bear on the painful experience of the void state, they unanimously strike a note of unqualified optimism that we can, if we embrace that pain, return from the abyss transformed.
