Description

Contemporary politics goes on at a mythic level. This is the argument put forward in this book which results from the collaboration of practising politicians, organizational and political consultants, scholars of mythology and culture, and Jungian analysts from several countries. The first part of the book focuses on leadership and vision, and features a reflection on myth and leadership by former US Senator Bill Bradley. The second part deals with the way the theme of "the one and the many" works itself out in politics today. From the perspective of "the many", there are chapters on factionalism, ethnic strife, genocide and multiculturalism. From the perspective of "the one", there are chapters on the economic myth and gender politics showing how these bring coherence to the late-20th century confused political scene, culminating in the suggestion that the modern political psyche is itself in the midst of a rite of passage. The book should provide interesting reading for practitioners and students in these areas as well as for those engaged in psychological work such as therapy, counselling or analysis.
