Feminist Views from Somewhere: Post-Jungian themes in feminist theory explores what and how Jungian thought contributes to feminist thinking. Broadly speaking, feminist thinking, or thinking by and about women as autonomous, intelligent and independent agents, has opened up scholarship through insightful, reflective critique and practice. This is the starting point of this collection from a range of theorists, interested in the multiple concerns of Jungian and analytical psychology.

The contributors take a unique approach to Jungian thinking. Rather than focussing on its mythological aspects, the authors develop alternative, feminist approaches that enhance the appreciation of the possibilities for Jungian and post-Jungian studies. With a primarily theoretical orientation, the rigorous, critical approaches in the collection highlight the possibilities of imaginative Jungian theory. Divided into three parts, Viewing Earth, Clinical Perspectives and Literary Landscapes, the chapters cover themes including embodiment, intersubjectivity, individuation and narrative. The contributors vividly reflect the range and diversity of opinions amongst women influenced by Jungian thought.

Feminist Views from Somewhere is essential reading for academics and students of Jungian and post-Jungian studies, women's studies and gender studies.
