In this compelling interview with one of the world’s most respected psychologists and social critics, Dr. Hillman takes a critical look at American culture, from how we relate to passersby on the street, to our response to 9/11 and Katrina, to what happens between therapist and client in the consulting room. He delves into diverse topics such as the addiction to innocence, the value of breakdown, the terrible oppression of being normal, and the role of elders. With his characteristic passion and fervor, Dr. James Hillman shares his thoughts on what’s wrong with American society, what we can do about it, and what really matters most.
This intriguing video will inspire anyone who has a longing for more authenticity and connection to cultivate a deeper sense of curiosity and wake up to the mystery of being alive. Hillman’s discussion about the role of psychology and psychotherapy in perpetuating the addiction to security and innocence will be of particular interest to anyone interested in a thoughtful critique of psychology. With counterintuitive injunctions such as, “Be rude!” and “Leave out hope,” Hillman offers his wise guidance about what we can all do to create a more soul-full society.
James Hillman has been a maverick thinker and writer, especially focusing on the pathology of society. His Re-Visioning Psychology was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in 1975. In this DVD, The Soulless Society, the interviewer skillfully leads this brilliant scholar through updates to the high points of his lifetime of insightful critiques of our society.
