The Making of a Psychologist covers the first half of the life of Dr. James Hillman, who is considered by many as the world's foremost post-Jungian thinker. He is also considered the founder of archetypal psychology, and is the author of more than twenty books, including the number one best-selling title, The Soul's Code. We follow Hillman from his youth in the heyday of Atlantic City, through post-war Paris and Dublin, travels in Africa and Kashmir, onward to Zurich and the Jung Institute, which appointed him its first Director of Studies in 1960. This first of a two-volume authorized biography is the result of hundreds of hours of interviews with Hillman and others over a seven-year period, The Making of a Psychologist examines how Hillman's unique psychology was forged through his life experiences and found its basis in the imagination, aesthetics, a return to the Greek pantheon, and the importance of "soul-making." Learn where Hillman started from, and have a better understanding of the mind of one of the most brilliant psychologist's of the 20th century.
