Synopses & Reviews
This book is about soul-making. It is an attempt at a psychology of soul, an essay in re-visioning psychology from the point of view of soul. This book is therefore old-fashioned and radically novel because it harks back to the classical notions of soul and yet advances ideas that current psychology has not even begun t consider. Because the soul cannot be understood through psychology alone, our vision even leaves the field of psychology as it is usually thought of, and moves widely through history, philosophy, and religion.
"More than any other author in the last part of this century, Hillman deserves credit for restoring 'soul' to its psychological sense." Utne Reader
"Reading this book is a mind-blowing experience....[It] sizzles with the provocative ideas of a person of obvious talent and imagination." Christian Century
"As an explorer of the imaginary realm of the psyche faithful to the reality of the archetypes rather than to any one theory about them, Hillman has no living peer." Library Journal
This groundbreaking classic explores the necessity of connections between our life and soul and developing the main lines of the soul-making process.
A groundbreaking classic work by the pioneer of soul-making.
