The Myth of Analysis: Three Essays in Archetypal Psychology (Paperback)
Originally published by Northwestern University Press in 1972, this work had a profound impact on a nation emerging self-aware from the 1960s, as well as on the era's burgeoning feminist movement. It remains a profound critique of therapy and the psychological viewpoint, and it is one of Hillman's most important and enduring works.
James Hillman (April 12, 1926 – October 27, 2011) was an American psychologist. He studied at, and then guided studies for, the C.G. Jung Institute in Zurich, founded a movement toward archetypal psychology and retired into private practice, writing and traveling to lecture, until his death at his home in Connecticut on October 27, 2011.
". . . an effort to penetrate beneath analysis and its theoretical language to the central archetypes and myths that reveal themselves therein. The result is a creative and innovative study of depth psychology that moves through and beyond Jung." —Journal of the American Academy of Religion
