Violence in History, Culture, and the Psyche: Essays
James Hillman dubs his friend Luigi Zoja of Milan an ""anthropological psychologist"" with good reason. Drawn from Zoja’s lectures in Europe and the Americas between 2000 and 2007, this collection probes in depth one of the core issues that vex contemporary life: violence. Zoja brings a breadth of vision to bear on this terrifying subject as he seeks to understand it in a broad historical, mythological, and psychological context. His basic approach is that of analytical psychology, but he also avails himself of the insights of sociology, anthropology, philosophy, and other disciplines. This unique collection is an invaluable contribution to Jungian thought on the subject of violence. Chapter One: Violent Hearts: America’s Divided Soul, Chapter Two: Trauma and Abuse: The Development of a Cultural Complex in the History of Latin America, Chapter Three: The Duel and Honor, Chapter Four: Nightmares, Chapter Five: Reductivism: Against Ismene, Chapter Six: The Clash of Civilizations? A Struggle between Identity and Functionalism, Chapter Seven: Almachius and the Demon.
