9780062505972: King, Warrior, Magician, Lover: Rediscovering the Archetypes of the Mature Masculine

In this contribution to the emerging men's movement, Jungian analysts Robert Moore and Douglas Gillette argue that mature masculinity is not abusive or domineering, but generative, creative, and empowering of the self and others. They clearly define the four mature male archetypes - the king (the energy of just and creative ordering), the warrior (the energy of aggressive but nonviolent action), the magician (the energy of initiation and transformation), and the lover (the energy that connects one to others and the world) - as well as the four immature patterns (divine child, oedipal child, trickster and hero). The authors propose the idea of a "man psychology" that is the key to true, mature masculinity.

From the Back Cover:

THE BESTSELLING, WIDELY HERALDED, JUNGIAN INTRODUCTION TO THE PSYCHOLOGICAL FOUNDATION OF A MATURE, AUTHENTIC, AND REVITALIZED MASCULINITY.

"The author take on the difficult task of separating man from boy by excavating 'psychological facts' from ancient myths and modern movies"
MICHAEL J. MEADE

"A map for men…When the intellectual history of the twentieth century is written, Moore's shrewd analysis of Jungian thought…will occupy an important place. [Moore and Gillette] are handing men concrete images and explicit ways of thinking and being, ways to mature and still remain fully masculine"
CHICAGO SUN-TIMES

"A liberating guide to self-transformation"
PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

"An exciting view of masculinity, one rooted not in domination but in creativity and empowerment of the self and others"
NEW AGE JOURNAL
