Beschreibung

"Stevens has a unique capacity for relating myths and symbols to the way our psyches function today, thus bringing symbols alive rather than dismissing them as historical curiosities. He is also a stylish writer, and is able to link his conclusions from a variety of fields into a consistent, readable whole."--Anthony Storr, University of Oxford

Pressestimmen

"This is a fascinating book, packed with ideas and out-of-the-way information... a thesaurus of symbols. [Stevens] aim[s] to provide clues to the origin, meaning, and development of some of the most common symbols and, like Ariadne's thread, to trace connections between different parts of what seems like an impenetrable maze."--John Habgood, The Times Higher Education Supplement "What sets this book apart from many others ... is Stevens's viewpoint. He approaches symbols as an evolutionary psychologist ... one who seeks to understand the biological reasons underlying our symbols... [This] would be of interest to anyone who tries to understand themselves, whether they do it by biology, psychology, astrology, or tarot. The symbols are always there."--David Smillie, Discovery Channel "One need not be a Jungian to appreciate this fine book both as a reference and a contemporary introduction to symbolism. A brilliant integration of psychological archetypes with Darwinian theory... Stevens presents vast learning easily and precisely in prose that is at once calm and exciting... [A] standard--if not the standard--in the field; essential for most libraries."--Library Journal (starred review)
