James Hillman "has been called "the most lively and original psychologist we have had in America since William James." A former director of studies at the Jung Institute in Zurich, where he lived for 25 years, James is also a Founding Fellow of the Dallas Institute of Humanities. In 1970, he established a journal, Spring, and a publishing company of the same name, both devoted to archetypal psychology. James believes in the primacy of Greek mythology as a key to depth psychology, focusing on polytheism as a core dynamic. He has written 21 books on archetypal psychology, ecopsychology, and the human condition. His Revisioning Psychology was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize in 1975. His most recent books are The Soul's Code: In Search of Character and Calling (Random House, 1996), and Kinds of Power (Doubleday Currency, 1994)." [1]
