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, and Shakespeare and Jung: The God in Time.

Here he distinguishes between three different philosophical styles: flux philosophies are oriented toward the future, stasis philosophies are oriented toward the past, and process philosophies focus on the present. Alfred North Whitehead, perhaps the greatest philosopher of the twentieth century, was a process philosopher. Time, as we experience it, is conditioned by archetypal processes. These processes entail civilizational godheads that are not entirely alien from actual god.
