A Blue Fire: Selected Writings Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A vitally important introduction to the theories of one of the most original thinkers in psychology today, A Blue Fire gathers selected passages from many of Hillman's seminal essays on archetypal psychology.

Review:

"Rich and provocative....Mr. Hillman has an exciting, difficult, deeply cultured mind, one that ranges easily from the arcana of alchemy to the discomforts of a busride." New York Times Book Review

Review:

"One of the few truly original thinkers in psychology today. His archetypal psychology transcends more traditional psychology, blending myth, language, and imagination in psychotherapy." Los Angeles Times

Review:

"Readers who have found Hillman's therapeutic approach impractical or abstruse will welcome this compact, highly readable anthology of his writings..." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"More than any other author in the last part of this century, Hillman deserves credit for restoring 'soul' to its psychological sense." Utne Reader

Review:

"Hillman's the most inspiring and disruptive thinker at work now in our country." LA Weekly

Review:

"James Hillman is the most lively and original psychologist we have had in America since William James. I honor him, and read something in his work almost every day." Robert Bly, author of Iron John

Review:

"People interested in creativity, religion, and mythology will find A Blue Fire rewarding, maddening, and ultimately, beguiling." Minneapolis Star Tribune

Review:

"[Hillman's] brilliance, wryness, sharpness, combativeness, grace, and love of beauty manifest themselves....[T]he best available introduction to archetypal psychology and to Hillman." Yoga Journal
