About the Lecture
Archetypal psychology is most closely associated with the works of James Hillman (1927 2011).
Departing from foundations in Freud and Jung it moves in a different air: less Northern, more
Mediterranean, polytheistic rather than monotheistic, and exhibiting parallels with Buddhism and other
Eastern philosophies in its dissolution of literalisms and essentialisms of every sort. It provides a
psychology of soul where anima is located primarily in the world and secondarily in the human person.
It is more than a psychology. It displays a form of life in which metaphor and imagination are the primary
modes of knowledge, and the poetic basis of mind is fundamental.
