Editorial Reviews

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