James Hillman (1926-2011)

"...Rather than case history, a psychologist would read human history; rather than biology, biography; rather than applying the epistemology of Western understanding to the alien, the tribal, and nontechnological cultures, we would let their anthropology (their stories of human nature) be applied to ours.  I want to reverse our thinking in psychology as it is taught and practiced, ambitiously seeking to redeem this field from some of its sins."  -- James Hillman, The Soul's Code. p. 31.
