House MD is a globally successful and long running medical drama. House: the Wounded Healer on Television employs a Jungian perspective to examine the psychological construction of the series and its namesake, Dr. Gregory House. The book also investigates the extent to which the continued popularity of House MD has to do with its representation of deeply embedded cultural concerns. Divided into three parts: Diagnosing House, Consulting House and Dissecting House, topics of discussion include: specific details, themes, motifs and tropes throughout the series narrative, character and visual structure the combination of performative effects, text and images of the doctor and his team the activities of the hero, the wounded healer and the puer aeternus. Offering an entirely fresh perspective of House MD, with contributions from medical professionals, academics and therapists, this book is essential reading for students and scholars of Jungian psychology. The inclusion of a glossary of Jungian terms means that this book can also be enjoyed by fans of House MD who have been seeking a more in depth analysis of the series.
