Collected English Papers, Vol. II

The internet, television, and the nuclear bomb have completely transformed man's relation to the world. Though regarded by many as soul-less, these technological realities are the real gods and archetypes of the soul today. This work presents a depth psychological approach to contemporary technological civilization and our relationship with it. This is the second volume of Wolfgang Giegerich's Collected English Papers and is the product of over three decades of critical reflection by one of archetypal psychology's most brilliant theorists.
Giegerich's English Papers are collected in four volumes: The Neurosis of Psychology (Vol. 1), Technology and the Soul (Vol. 2), Soul-Violence (Vol. 3), and The Soul Always Thinks (Vol. 4).
