Archetypal Process: Self and Divine in Whitehead, Jung, and Hillman

Griffin, David Ray. (Ed.)

 This provocative volume is an outgrowth of a conference aimed at connecting process theology based on Whitehead’s philosophy and the archetypal psychology of James Hillman—in turn an outgrowth of Jungian psychology. Additional essays were written specifically for the book. The format of the conference was dialogical, with some papers being responses to others, and with the original authors replying to their respondents. In essence, the contributions are concerned with archetypes and the proper use of language and theory to deal with them. The range and depth of the contributions is evident from the contents: Introduction.
