a daylong program led by
Saturday, November 2, 2013
James Hillman, who authored more than twenty-five books before his death at 86 in 2011, is considered the founder of archetypal psychology, an important post-Jungian school of thought. With Hillman's authorization, Dick Russell has been working on his biography for more than seven years. The two-volume work is based upon many hours of interviews with Hillman and others, as well as dozens of Hillman's unpublished letters.
Volume One of Russell's The Life and Ideas of James Hillman was published in June by Helios Press. Sub-titled "The Making of a Psychologist," the 702-page book covers the first half of Hillman's life, 1926-1969, with emphasis on the experiences that led him to Zurich's Jung Institute in the early 1950s and to becoming its first Director of Studies following his student years.
This workshop will include the personal story of Russell's relationship with Dr. Hillman, and he will read a number of excerpts from the book, with particular emphasis on some of the critical experiences that led Hillman to Zurich to study with Jung and on the evolution of Hillman's relationship to Jung.
Dick Russell is the author of ten books, including three New York Times best-sellers and Eye of the Whale, named among the best books of the year (2001) by three major newspapers. A recipient of the citizen's Chevron Conservation Award, he is a longtime environmental activist who worked closely on projects with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. He first met James Hillman through a mutual friend who sold each of them organic vegetables.
