Psyche and the Arts: Jungian Approaches to Music, Architecture,… (2008)

by Susan Rowland (Editor)

MembersReviewsPopularityAverage ratingConversations
Does art connect the individual psyche to history and culture?Psyche and the Arts challenges existing ideas about the relationship between Jung and art, and offers exciting new dimensions to key issues such as the role of image in popular culture, and the division of psyche and matter in art form. Divided into three sections - Getting into Art, Challenging the Critical Space and Interpreting Art in the World - the text shows how Jungian ideas can work with the arts to illuminate both psychological theory and aesthetic response. Psyche and the Arts offers new critical visions of literature, film, music, architecture and painting, as something alive in the experience of creators and audiences challenging previous Jungian criticism.

For Edmund Cusick, poet


You, who knit the underworld to the overworld

With your shaman words.
First words

This book began at a conference by the River Thames in London, July 2006. In the hot summer air and green trees of the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich, Psyche and Imagination’ was held in conjunction with the University of Greenwich, and was the first independent conference of the International Association of Jungian Studies.

I offer this paper in two guises, partly as a creative artist, partly as a Jungian critic. What I hope to do is to put some of my own work in the context of Jungian themes, and make some observations about how a Jungian understanding of the life of the psyche informs my own experience as an artist.
