For Love of the Imagination is a book about the imagination - about what and how images mean. Jungian psychoanalysis is an imaginal psychology - or what Michael Vannoy Adams calls imaginology, the study of the imagination. What is so distinctive - and so valuable - about Jungian psychoanalysis is that it emphasizes images. For Love of the Imagination is also a book about interdisciplinary applications of Jungian psychoanalysis. What enables these applications is that all disciplines include images of which they are more or less unconscious. Jungian psychoanalysis is in an enviable position to render these images conscious, to specify what and how they mean. On the contemporary scene, as a result of the digital revolution, there is no trendier word than applications - except, perhaps, the abbreviation apps. In psychoanalysis, there is a Freudian app and a Jungian app. The Jungian app is a technology of the imagination. This book applies Jungian psychoanalysis to images in a variety of disciplines. For Love of the Imagination also includes the 2011 Moscow lectures on Jungian psychoanalysis. It will be essential reading for psychoanalyists, psychotherapists, students and those with an interest in Jung.
