Psychology and the Internet

The latest issue of Spring:
A Journal of Archetype and Culture, Vol. 80, is dedicated to an exploration of life in the Information Age. Combining Jungian and Archetypal perspectives with the views of artificial intelligence and internet pioneers, the volume penetrates the array of present and future innovations in search of their psychological implications. Connected or disconnected? Essays by Robert Romanyshyn, Mikita Brottman, Glen Mazis and others take up this central question. Enter a virtual world, discover your smart phone transference and consider living with robots--all in Vol. 80.
