Hermes, guide of souls
Karl Kerenyi, the famous mythographer, classicist, & friend of Jung, here represents a beautiful, authoritative study of the great God whom the Greeks revered as Guide of Souls. Chapters on Hermes & Night, Hermes & Eros, Hermes & the Goddesses illuminate the complex role of Hermes in classical mythology, while also providing an archetypal background for the guiding of souls in psychotherapy. A vital contribution both to the study of the classics & therapy of the soul. "A most useful work on the archetypal background & an important character in our mythic identity."--Baelder.
