Description

Well-known Jungian analyst, author and lecturer Erel Shalit passed away in early 2018.  This is his book, The Human Soul (Lost) in Transition At the Dawn of a New Era, published posthumously.

“The aim of this book,” wrote Shalit, “is to present a depth psychological perspective on phenomena pertaining to the present, postmodern era. As such, its origins are in the depths; symbolically, in the depth of the waters, in which the sacred is reflected. Likewise, this book centers around the image, which has travelled from the forbidden zone of the transcendent command ‘make no graven image,’ through the interiority of the human soul, to become an exteriorized, computerized, robot-generated image that virtualizes as well as augments reality.”

This book explores the changing character of the relationship between us humans and the image, and the dramatic impact this has in post-modern culture.
