"Drinking Archetypal Beers": Michael Vannoy Adams and James Hillman at the third Jungian "Tertulia," or group conversation, in Scranton, PA, June 14-16, 2002
James Hillman is the founder of the school of "archetypal psychology." Adams's article "The Archetypal School," in P. Young-Eisdendrath and T. Dawson (eds.), The Cambridge Companion to Jung (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1997), pp. 101-18, describes the origin and influence of the school, which Hillman prefers to call a "direction" or "approach." Hillman's Archetypal Psychology, Uniform Edition of the Writings of James Hillman, vol. 1 (Putnam, CT: Spring Publications, 2004), also provides an account of this movement, with a complete checklist of writings by Hillman and an extensive bibliography of writings by others in the field of archetypal psychology. Adams has written two articles specifically about Hillman: "The Very Idea(s) of James Hillman: Dreaming of a Black Dog and Sticking to the Image" and "Hillman Alone in Pursuit of the Imagination: Golden Calf Psychology."
