Spirit and Soul: Essays in Philosophical Psychology

Casey, Edward S.

 The aim of this collection of philosopher Edward Casey is to relate phenomenological philosophy and archetypal psychology. Fourteen essays, written 1973-1985, are included, of which four had not been published previously. He emphasizes the situatedness of archetypes, thus denying their universality. Perhaps the most integrated piece in the book is the Foreword, "Spirit and Soul in Perspective," in which he deals with the joining, or conjoining, of these two major aspects of human being. Memory and Imagination are dealt with in detail in the text, where they are viewed as two major bridges between spirit and soul, with soul moving upward from the body and memory moving downward from spirit to soul and from soul to body. The essays are arranged in four sections entitled Imagining, Between Imagination and Memory, Remembering, and Soul in Time and Space. In the story of a person, through memory and imagination the archetypes became particularized in a time and place via a particular human being who is, in effect, the universe in a point. This volume is very relevant to the way and the why of incorporating and living from one’s EHEs, which may be viewed as calls from the soul conveyed by memory and imagination.
