What began as a “Postscript” to the 1970 issue of the Spring Journal has in the past twenty-five years come to offer the most broad-ranging, radical, and serious alternative to modern ego-based psychology. Archetypal psychology challenges orthodox psychological thinking by replacing its humanistic and scientific assumptions with a psychology founded in soul. Of the hundreds of psychological theories, only archetypal psychology has, from the beginning, insisted on a constant re-visioning of psychology’s own ideas. Others argue ideology–archetypal psychology insists on a psychology guided by aesthetic concerns and polytheistic imagining.

Working with Images focuses on the theory and practice of archetypal psychology as set forth by some of its pioneering theoreticians and practitioners. Included are James Hillman’s classic essays, “Archetypal Psychology: Monotheistic or Polytheistic,” “Peaks and Vales,” and “Image-Sense,” as well as selections from Thomas Moore, Wolfgang Giegerich, Patricia Berry, Mary Watkins, and others.
