IMAGINAL LOVE
The Meanings of Imagination
in Henry Corbin and James Hillman
by TOM CHEETHAM

Paperback original, $22
200 pages
First edition
ISBN-13: 978-0-88214-032-2

Kindle/iBooks edition, $9.99
eISBN: 978-0-88214-033-9

SUBJECT: Religion/Psychology

Corbin’s work on the role of imagination in the religions and its fundamental place in human life has had a lasting and wide-ranging influence on contemporary poetry and the humanities. Among his most influential readers were the poets Charles Olson and Robert Duncan and the archetypal psychologist James Hillman. Central to their common vision is the creative power of language, understood not as a human invention but as a fundamental feature of reality. This new book by philosopher, biologist, poet, and teacher Tom Cheetham provides an overview of Corbin’s “psychocosmology” and its significance for Hillman’s archetypal psychology, contemporary poetics, and spiritual practice. It will be of interest to psychotherapists, artists, poets, and anyone who has ever wondered at the mysterious power of language and the imagination to transform the human soul.

THE LOVE CURE
Therapy Erotic and Sexual
by JOHN RYAN HAULE

Kindle/iBooks edition, $9.99
eISBN: 978-0-88214-035-3

SUBJECT: Jungian Psychology

The Love Cure asks questions and describes feelings and events that the therapeutic and self-help communities would rather not look at. But it goes beyond simplistic and moralistic either/or, yes-or-no debates about erotic relations in therapy. Haule is a clear-minded and full-hearted professional who writes brightly, learnedly, and with a rich understanding of the complexities of love, the illusions it brings, and the healing it offers.

THE GENIUS DECISION
The Extraordinary and the Postmodern Condition
by KLAUS OTTMANN

Paperback original, $22
216 pages
Second, revised and enlarged edition
ISBN: 978-0-88214-592-1

Kindle/iBooks edition, $9.99
eISBN: 978-0-88214-037-7

SUBJECT: Philosophy/Art

THE GENIUS DECISION is not an attempt at explaining or predicting genius. Nor is its goal to construct a concept or the concept of genius. Rather, the following should be considered as a horizon of conceptual events that constitute an philosophy of desire within the ethical-aesthetical writings of seven of Western philosophy’s most influential thinkers: Spinoza, Schelling, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Peirce, Wittgenstein, and Heidegger. This postmodern reevaluation of genius suggests that while there is no essentialist quality of genius, the postmodern artist can reach the Extraordinary by way of an active-passive Genius Decision, which is engaged in an activity of failure in its desire to represent the Nonrepresentable.

ARCHETYPAL MEDICINE
Translated by Gary V. Hartman
Foreword by Robert Sardello

Kindle/iBooks edition, $9.99
eISBN: 978-0-88214-036-0


SUBJECT: Jungian Psychology/Medicine

"This work … constitutes a rare and valuable contribution to a radically different way of approaching physical illness and suffering … Only archetypal medicine, it seems, recognizes that … there can be health only when there is also illness … To oversimplify Ziegler's case: illness represents one of the primary ways in which the forgotten, sleeping soul awakens itself by falling into body."
– from Robert Sardello's foreword
