Publisher's Summary

James Hillman was a past master of alchemical psychology. This field uses metaphors derived from ancient alchemy to elucidate deep structures in the creative imagination. Creative processes are not random. By studying alchemical psychology we come to understand ourselves and other humans in surprising ways that frequently diverge sharply from the habitual understandings we have unconsciously absorbed from the cultures in which we were raised. These new awarenesses can engender unexpected new vitality and wonder.

Hillman's Voice

I am delighted that Hillman's talks are being released. He was an impressive speaker. These lectures are interesting not only for the fantastic subject matter but the way Hillman's delivers them. He doesn't see to follow too strictly to words pre-written but rather seems to have something like a general plan from which he brings in elements and quotations here and there as and when he conjures them in his remarkable mind. His engagement with his audience is captivating responding to feelings and murmurings in the crowd and diverting or directing his talk based upon them. Highly recommended.
