Review by:
David Trappier

This anthology of essays demonstrates an intellectual and cultural movement or psychic momentum which is represented by authors who present multiple voices from different perspectives and professions. Its title presents archetypal psychology in the plural, with an emphasis true to the pluralism and diversity of the ‘polytheistic psychology’ of Hillman's soul-making world, where the individual interacts with the mundus imaginalis, creating a transformative field for soul. Writers differ in their emphasis on whether this ‘soul-making’ takes place in the individual, the ‘polis ‘or the anima mundi itself.

Although it is stated more than once by Hillman and others that there is no founder to this movement, it is clear to anyone reading this book that the fecundity of Hillman's work and the energy it has released results in his presence being felt throughout as a founding spirit.
