Volume III is an exegesis of the myth of Hermes stealing Apollo’s cattle and the story of Hephaestus trapping Aphrodite and Ares in the act are used to set a mythic foundation for Jungian ecopsychology. Illustrates Hermes as the archetypal link to our bodies, sexuality, the phallus, the feminine, and the earth. Hermes’ wand is presented as a symbol for ecopsychology. The appendices develop the argument for the application of complexity theory to key Jungian concepts, displacing classical Jungian constructs problematic to the scientific and academic community. Hermes is described as the god of complexity theory.

Dennis Merritt, Ph.D., LCSW, is a Jungian psychoanalyst and ecopsychologist in private practice in Madison and Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Dream work and use of the I Ching in analysis are his fortes, and he incorporates sandplay therapy into his work as a subtle yet powerful form of active imagination. He integrates elements of psychoanalytic, psychodynamic, brief therapy and Winnicott into a Jungian ecopsychological perspective. Over twenty years of participation in Lakota Sioux ceremonies have strongly influenced his worldview.
