Archetypal Psychology Home

Welcome… What is now known as the school of ‘archetypal psychology’ was founded by James Hillman with a number of other Jungians in Zurich in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. The school arose in reaction against what they regarded as unnecessarily metaphysical assumptions in Jung and the complacent, rote application of Jungian tenets. Hillman prefers to regard archetypal psychology not as a ‘school’ but as a ‘direction’ or an ‘approach’.
Archetypal psychology is a post-Jungian psychology, a critical elaboration of Jungian theory and practice after Jung.
