Hi David, I bought the book, Underworld and Archetypes Illustrated. As a layman, I might not be able to competently review it, but it looked fascinating and appears to be a book of reference that will help me to understand this subject as my perspective widens.
I will certainly contribute a commentary on the thread you posted for the community here. This may take some time, as I'm still reading a couple others now, including Re-visioning Psychology by Hillman, pertaining to this topic.
I apologize for the lateness of response to your message. I have been swamped with dissertation writing. I hope you found a person that can review the book for you and submit. Many times I would jump at the chance but being behind and behinder, it was not possible.
Greetings David and welcome to the Depth Psychology Alliance. With so many options in cyberland, I am pleased you chose to join our wonderful online community! There are a number of people who are part of this community that might be able to give you any expertise you may desire on the multiple depth psychologies at play in the world. If you have a new depth psychology book that you are publishing, you might want to have someone write a review for submission for the Depth Insights E-zine.
We currently have over 3800 members from all over the world! As you explore our community, I hope you find a dynamic group of like-minded people who I believe are all deeply drawn by the field of depth psychology.
