Working with Images is an indispensable volume for all those who are drawn to the mystery of soul and imagination. For the student of psychology, these essays sketch many of the formative ideas behind one of the most exciting and challenging psychological movements of our day. Benjamin Sells introduces readers to some of the essential essays that formed the theoretical basis of archetypal psychology, the radical post-Jungian movement initiated by James Hillman in the 1970s and later elaborated by Thomas Moore (A Blue Fire and Care of the Soul). Sells provides an overview of the field and then introduce each essay providing its context and significance. Includes the essential and hard-to-find Hillman essays “Peaks and Vales.” If you are new to archetypal and imaginal psychology this collection is a must read. (Revised Second Edition, 2022)
A classic in the field. It resolved many longstanding uncertainties about the relationship of soul, spirit and the mythic and spiritual realms. Highly recommended.
