Philosophically opaque much like the French philosophy of the 1970s. There is some value in understanding how we create/imagine our world, as proven by research on the neuroscience of perception. I also find commonalities between active imagination and Ericksonian hypnosis and the imaginal work involved in EMDR and Somatic Experiencing. In the end, I prefer authors who can write about such esoteric subjects without the obscuring use of language.

Better than the popular press book, but still more religion than psychology. Interesting, but hard to grasp.

One of my favorite books by James Hillman. I enjoyed this book so much that I have written an 8 part series of posts on my blog.

The book is a fascinating tour of the alchemical process and its correlative psychological journey as told to us by the Alchemists of old. Yes, they weren’t only interested in literally transforming substances, but about experiencing the transformation of the psyche and finding the Philosopher’s Stone.

Loved the book, learned so much. Finished up disliking him more. Never liked him, always awed by his genius, and impacted. His attitude to his affair and his relationship with women is not just of its time - it is callous and a-psychological, out of touch and this is so disappointing. It shows a flaw in his professional as well as personal life, not one that I can forgive. I sort of knew this but here it is laid out - blatant. Even though the author seems to be sympathetic, colludes.

So I rate th

It is, as it claims to be, a brief account, with all the benefits and deficiencies that such a format provides. As usual, Hillman has the merits of being provocative and (over?) confident. The concomitant lack of humility and caution, as usual, make him seem a bit strident. Interesting but not mind-blowing.

This is a re-read for me. I devour Hillman. He is an extremely wise and perceptive man who makes me think a lot...

Replace "brief" with vague and an accurate description becomes manifest.
