Product Description

From the Author

The "Why" of Archetypes
Gods in Everyman is a companion volume to Goddesses in Everywoman. Both are the archetypes in us, based on the gods and goddesses in Greek mythology. People are complex, there is a pantheon of these archetypes in each of us. They act from within us, and the more we know of them, and the more conscious we can be about ourselves, the better. Every archetype is a predisposition each contributes to our personality, helping define our strengths, difficulties, and meaning. Families and cultures favor some archetypes over others, which affects success and self-esteem. On a personal level, individuals who find themselves repeatedly attracted to certain types need to know "who" it is in them and in the other person. I hope that people who read both books, will come away with a respectable knowledge of Greek mythology, a working understanding of Jungian archetypal psychology, and on a personal level, with insights into themselves and the significant people in their lives.

From the Back Cover

In this enlightening companion volume to the bestselling Goddesses in Everywoman, Jean Shinoda Bolen introduces men's inner patterns in the guise of eight archetypal gods. From the authoritarian, power-seeking gods (Zeus, Poseidon) to the gods of creativity (Apollo, Hephaestus), from the sensual Dionysus to Hermes, the communicator and a rchetype of the man on the move, Dr. Bolen shows men how to identify their ruling gods, how to decide which to cultivate and which to overcome, and how to tap the power of these enduring archetypes in order to enrich and strengthen their lives. She stresses the importance of understanding which gods you are attracted to and which are incompatible with your expectations, uncovers the origins of the often-difficult father-son relationship, and explores society's deep conflict between nurturing behavior and the need to foster masculinity.

In Gods in Everyman, Dr. Bolen presents us with a compassionate and lucid male psychology that will help all men and women to better understand themselves and their relationships with their fathers, sons, brothers, and lovers.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the companion volume to Godessess in Everywoman, both are a mine of readable and understandable information for anyone wanting to follow the behest of the Delphic Oracle and "Know Thyself". I would go so far as to say that one volume isn't complete without the other because both the feminine and masculine archetypes are found in all of us.
Through these books and with the use of the stories of the mythical Greek gods and goddesses Jean Shinoda Bolen helps us to identify the many facets of personality and the stages of growth we all go through. She gives guidelines to help us offset the more negative traits of the personality aspects she explores, she warns us of the ruts we may get stuck into and what might precipitate a mid-life crisis. She also gives us an insight into the ups and downs of the parental and romantic relationships each predominant god and goddess type might have. She doesn't confine "romantic" to hetrosexual relationships either.
Both volumes are a "must have" on the bookshelves of anyone interested in personal growth and/or seeking to understand the driving forces in men and women.

I am hardly a literary critic. I'm just a 38 year old husband and father and the product of an extremely unfortunate childhood. I bought this book and couldn't put it down. If you're a guy, you'll find yourself described among the author's pages and you'll see yourself a bit differently as a man. It's really refreshing and inspiring. I know my life has changed. If you're a woman, you'll probably understand the man you love, whether he's your mate, your son or father, a bit better. It's a great book. :)

Women have always wondered what makes men tick - or even better, what makes them call or not call. Well, here is your answer, and then some. Joking aside, this is an excellent book into men's lives, loves and general psychology in relation to fathers, mothers, siblings and partners. Warm recommendations.

I feel that this book is an essential part of anyone's education. However, it is as important to read the original Godesses in Everywomen as it is to read this one.
