Between ancient Greece and modern psyche lies a divide of not only three thousand years, but two cultures that are worlds apart in art, technology, economics and the accelerating flood of historical events. This unique collection of essays from an international selection of contributors offers compelling evidence for the natural connection and relevance of ancient myth to contemporary psyche, and emerges from the second 'Ancient Greece, Modern Psyche' conference held in Santorini, Greece, in 2012.

This volume is a powerful homecoming for those seeking a living connection between the psyche of the ancients and our modern psyche. This book looks at eternal themes such as love, beauty, death, suicide, dreams, ancient Greek myths, the Homeric heroes and the stories of Demeter, Persephone, Apollo and Hermes as they connect with themes of the modern psyche. The contributors propose that that the link between them lies in the underlying archetypal patterns of human behaviour, emotion, image, thought, and memory.

Ancient Greece, Modern Psyche: Archetypes Evolving makes clear that an essential part of deciphering our dilemmas resides in a familiarity with Western civilization's oldest stories about our origins, our suffering, and the meaning or meaninglessness in life. It will be of great interest to Jungian psychotherapists, academics and students as well as scholars of classics and mythology.

MEDIA REVIEWS

`The Ancient Greece - Modern Psyche conferences, established by Virginia Beane Rutter and Thomas Singer at Santorini, have quickly become an essential stage for dialogue between classical Greek studies and contemporary analytical psychology. In this brilliant collection of essays, the founding editors bring together seven thinkers who, with lucid double vision, weigh images of the Greek soul with scholarly precision and assess their life-and-death implications for the modern psyche.' - Craig E. Stephenson, author of Possession: Jung's Comparative Anatomy of the Psyche (Routledge, 2009) and Anteros: A Forgotten Myth (Routledge, 2011).
