The life and times of the world?s foremost post-Jungian thinker, and best-selling author of The Soul?s Code.

The Life and Ideas of James Hillman: Volume I: The Making of a Psychologist explores the early life of Dr. James Hillman, one of the world's foremost post-Jungian thinkers. The founder of a revolutionary school of archetypal psychology and the author of more than twenty books, including the groundbreaking New York Times bestseller The Soul's Code, Hillman was devoted to returning psychology to its ancient roots, as the ?study of the soul.? Here Dick Russell provides readers with an unprecedented exploration of the life that shaped this philosophy, following Hillman from his youth in the heyday of Atlantic City, through postwar Paris and Dublin, to his travels in Africa and Kashmir, and onward to Zürich and the Jung Institute, which appointed him its first Director of Studies in 1960.

The result of hundreds of hours of interviews with Hillman and others, including his family, friends, and fellow scholars, The Making of a Psychologist examines the themes of Hillman?s life, and how his unique vision of psychology was forged through his early experiences and found its basis in the imagination, aesthetics, a return to the Greek pantheon, and the importance of ?soul-making.? Russell?s thoughtful and informed analysis provides readers with a deep understanding of the mind and legacy of one of the most brilliant psychologists of the modern era.
