James Hillman - psychologist, scholar, culture critic, and author of more than 20 books, including the bestselling “The Soul’s Code” - is one of the modern era’s most original thinkers on the human and collective psyche.
Now approaching his 85th birthday, I spoke with Hillman as he was recuperating from two years of illness.
It’s a new life, he told me. A lot of reflection instead of ambition.
The American psyche has always stoked Hillman’s reflections.
