Puer Papers Reviews
I am up to the last section of this book: The Puer in Myth and Literature. I am stopping here and putting it aside for now. I simply have too many books that I am excited to read right now and the end of the book is getting to be a bit of a slog. This book is a very important counter-balance to Von-Franz's book on the Puer. When I say "this book" what I really mean is the first essay by James Hillman titled, "Sensex and Puer: An Aspect of the Historical and Psychological Present" which runs about 50 pages. Hillman celebrates the puer and does not see it like Von-Franz who wants to "kill" the puer and turn him into a sensex. Okay, maybe that's a little harsh in describing Von-Franz. Regardless, Hillman sees it as a Puer-Sensex continuum and that psychological health comes from adding some balance to either extreme - but not that the Puer is inherently problematic.I hope to add some of my favorite excerpts soon.The four stars are specifically for the Hillman essay and not for the entire book.
