James Hillman was my dear friend, from whom I learned much at our dinners, on walks and drives, and during collaborations in writing and speaking. He was devoted to the ideas of C.G. Jung and yet was fiercely willing to go his own way. He was always on the lookout for soul, always the therapist, even when he turned his attention away from individuals to the world.

C.G. Jung believed that the Self is an expression of the divine within the personality. He refers to it as the “God within,” or imago dei. In this series of lectures, Dr. Corbett will describe some of the ways in which the Self manifests itself symbolically, comparing the idea of the Self with a number of classical theistic images of God in Western religious traditions.
