IPTC INFO
CaptionRe-Visioning Psychology Paperback by James Hillman _________________________________________ Many may be repelled by Hillman's seeming anachronistic and animistic return to gods daimons and personifications; as if taking the field of psychology on a regress. Hillman may even seem to some as living in a fantasy world concocted out of what he's read between Plato and the Renaissance period. But this is not mere atavism on his part to revive a nostalgic time and worldview. As Hillman states in his latest book "The Soul's Code" we need only fall madly in love to admit of a daimonic possession. Gods--archetypes--animate us. Some gods may be dead but many others certainly are up to the task of roiling us. Hillman is a master writer. He is effusive as any scribe of the soul should be. He is poetic and mythic; he provokes the reader and evokes a litany of images and connections. Helmsmen Intuition and Imagination are continually steering Hillman's hand. If there are contradictions in this work then they are most welcome and even sought. How else can it be? Simple sciences breed simplistic answers. Something as complex as the soul and as great as the imagination cannot but procreate that which to Logic appears as contradictions. And so his style and objective as he admits is to confuse and confound rather than reduce and ground in the empirical and therefore to a halt. There can be no pat and final answers or theologies of the soul and the gods and Hillman makes certain of that. --- A Coup de Grace Jan 1999 Edwardson Tan ---____________________________________________________________________________ # Paperback: 304 pages # Publisher: Harper Paperbacks; Reissue edition January 28 1978 # Language: English # ISBN: 0060905638
