James Hillman on the Soulless Society

by James Hillman
Hillman probes deeply into the psyche and underbelly of modern society, and offers some unexpected insights.


James Hillman on the Soulless Society
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. 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.
