The Soul’s Code

Hermetic Library fellow T Polyphilus reviews The Soul’s Code: In Search of Character and Calling by James Hillman:

James Hillman's The Soul's Code from Grand Central Publishing


Hillman is a Jungian psychologist, and this volume is a secularized treatment of the attainment of daimonic inspiration, written for a popular audience. Most of the book treats its topic through extensive biographical anecdotes, and the conclusion foregrounds a phallic symbolism of creativity and destiny. Recommended to Thelemites. [via]



The Hermetic Library Reading Room is an imaginary and speculative future reification of the library in the physical world, a place to experience a cabinet of curiosities offering a confabulation of curation, context and community that engages, archives and encourages a living Western Esoteric Tradition.
