The lead essay in this volume, “Entertaining Ideas,” could as well be its title. Ideas investigated range from particular philosophers (Heraclitus, Plotinus, Whitehead, Ficino, Vico, Carus, Proclus) to discussions of the philosophical aspects of an archetypal psychology. Also included are papers on cosmology, mathematics, justice, language, and education, as well as Hillman's responses to colleagues and intellectual critics first published in the Italian book Dear James.
Spring takes pride in announcing, in conjunction with the Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture, the publication of the Uniform Edition of the Writings of James Hillman (1926–2011), the founder of Archetypal Psychology - the lasting legacy of an original mind.
The uniform, clothbound set of 10 volumes of the writings of James Hillman unites major lectures, occasional writings, scholarly essays, clinical papers and interviews - arranged thematically. Each volume is embossed with a drawing by the American artist James Lee Byars.
