Merritt on Jung, Hermes, and Ecopsychology

Fisher King Press Presents:

Jung, Hermes and Ecopsychology 
The Dairy Farmer’s Guide to the Universe in Four Volumes
We keep forgetting that we are primates and that we have to make allowances for these primitive layers in our psyche. The farmer is still closer to these layers. In tilling the earth he moves around within a very narrow radius, but he moves on his own land. —C.G. Jung
Volume I:  Jung and Ecopsychology presents the main premises of Jungian ecopsychology, offers some of Jung’s best ecopsychological quotes, and provides a brief overview of the evolution of our dysfunctional Western relationship with the environment.
—ISBN 9781926715421 Available Jan 2012

Volume II:  The Cry of Merlin—Jung, the Prototypical Ecopsychologist makes the basic premises of Jungian ecopsychology more convincing and understandable by illustrating how they evolved out of Jung’s lived experience.
—ISBN 9781926715438 Available Sept 2012

Volume III:  Ecopsychology and Complexity Theory: Hermes and the Cows is an exegesis of the myth of Hermes stealing Apollo’s cattle to be used as a mythic foundation for Jungian ecopsychology with Hermes' wand as its symbol.
—ISBN 9781926715445 Available Dec 2012

Volume IV: An Archetypal View  Land, Seasons, Weather, Planet of the Insect: An Archetypal View  Land explores the environment, with the Midwest as an example, using traditional Jungian and Hillmanian approaches to deepen our connection with the land, the seasons, and insects. The Dalai Lama said how we relate to insects is very important for it reveals much about a culture’s relationship with the psyche and nature.
—ISBN 9781926715452 Available June 2013
