Overview

Myths of the Family by James Hillman

In this challenging and entertaining audio program, internationally recognized Jungian teacher and theorist James Hillman, Ph.D., presents the themes he writes about in his well-know book, The Soul’s Code. The fantasy of the family remains the dominating theme of psychotherapy and psychotheory. In this recording, Dr. Hillman brings his critical eye, his wide eye – and often his absurd humor – to bear upon the myths that operate in our thoughts about family.

About the Author

James Hillman is the founder of archetypal psychology and is a leading scholar in Jungian and Post-Jungian thought. He is considered to be one of the most important radical critics and innovators of contemporary culture. Hillman served in the U.S. Navy Hospital Corps from 1944 to 1946, after which he attended the Sorbonne in Paris and Trinity College, Dublin, graduating in 1950. In 1959, he received his Ph.D. from the University of Zurich, as well as his analyst's diploma from the Jung Institute. He was immediately appointed to the Director of Studies at the Jung Institute, a position he held until 1969. In 1970, Hillman became editor of Spring Publications, a publishing company devoted to advancing archetypal psychology as well as publishing books on mythology, philosophy, and art. His magnum opus, Re-Visioning Psychology, was written in 1975 and nominated for the Pulitzer Prize. Hillman then helped co-found the Dallas Institute for Humanities and Culture in 1978. His 1997 book, The Soul's Code: In Search of Character and Calling, was on The New York Times Best Seller List in 1997. His works and ideas about philosophy and psychology have been popularized by other modern authors such as Thomas Moore. His papers and book drafts reside at Opus Archives and Research Center, located on the campuses of Pacifica Graduate Institute in Carpinteria, California. Hillman currently lives in Connecticut.

I would prefer to give this audiobook no star. It is not about the soul, but is filled with psycho jargon, with no solutions offered. It talks a lot about family structure and problems therein, but offers no hope at the end of the tunnel.
