CONVERSING WITH JAMES HILLMAN

The Conversing with James Hillmanseries publishes the papers from the Dallas Institute’s annual James Hillman Symposium. Each symposium takes as its subject a volume of the Uniform Edition of the Writings of James Hillman. Internationally recognized scholars explicate the volume and illuminate concepts developed by James Hillman in his groundbreaking work on archetypal psychology.

The title of the series, Conversing with James Hillman, emphasizes the dialogic nature of this work, considering Hillman’s texts in psychological, philosophical, historical, cultural, and social frameworks. Conversing with James Hillman supports the mission of the James Hillman Symposiums to honor Hillman’s lifelong study of—in his own words—a “psychology deliberately affiliated with the arts, culture, and the history of ideas, arising as they do from the imagination.”

THE GASTON BACHELARD TRANSLATIONS

The Bachelard Translations are the inspiration of Joanne H. Stroud, Director of Publications for The Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture, who in 1981 contracted with José Corti to publish in English the untranslated works of Bachelard on the imagination. Quite directly said, Dr. Stroud presents Gaston Bachelard in an exquisitely "Bachelardian" fashion, through images, in images, and through what we might think of as "the great reversal"-being more "objective" about our inner life while at the same time becoming more "subjective" in our presence with the world. We discover that it is quite possible to carefully and with care "track" the inner world through deepest engagement, and at the same time feel everything around us as a Who, as Presences. The imaginal world discovered by Gaston Bachlard, lover of poetic images, that great alchemical union of "knowing and presence," can heal the world, can heal the soul, can heal our relationships, from the most intimate pairing to the boardroom, even leading to international intimacy of respect. This book presents these possibilities. With Bachelard, and with Dr. Stroud, we experience something of a revolutionary shift: that it is indeed possible to live poetic, imaginal existence as formative of daily life. Bachelard seemed to be somewhat of a recluse, which seemed necessary to the work he was doing, for the disturbances of the hectic world would have delayed or even foiled the unfolding of his work. Dr. Stroud, however, intimates that it is possible, indeed imperative in this time, to be fully within the world as active world-dreamers. While the process may well be the "grasping, mapping, making," equally important is the primacy of the imaginal Earth, and dedication to imaginal ecology.
