James P. Driscoll, PhD, is one of the foremost critics of Renaissance literature from a Jungian perspective. He is author of Identity in Shakespearean Drama, The Unfolding God of Jung and Milton, Shakespeare and Jung: The God in Time, Shakespeare’s Identities, and Jung’s Cartography of the Psyche: A Guide to Terms, Concepts, and Insights.

Here he describes the magnitude and breadth of C. G. Jung’s thought process, extending far beyond Jung’s specific professional interest in psychiatry. Jung, for example, wrote far more on religious topics than any other psychological theorist. He tended to oppose religious orthodoxy; but argued that godhead archetypes regulate both individual psyches as well as the evolution of civilizations. Driscoll also addresses the relationship of Jungian thought to literary criticism, philosophy, and social justice.
