The Warrior Within: Accessing the Knight in the Male Psyche

Robert Moore, Author, Douglas Gillette, With William Morrow & Company $22 (301p) ISBN 978-0-688-09592-5
The second in a projected series of four works on the structure of male archetypes, based on Jungian psychology, this study follows The King Within by the same authors. Moore, a professor of psychology and religion at the Chicago Theological Seminary, and Gillette, a graduate of that seminary and a pastoral counselor, hew closely to the Jungian party line, explaining with exceptional clarity the concepts of archetypes, the Ego, the Transpersonal Other (God for many individuals), the Self and the Shadow. Their thesis is simple: the Warrior is an integral part of the male psyche, but it must be socialized so that it does not lead the man to either sadism or masochism, and it must be incorporated with the King, the Magician and the Lover to achieve its fullest expression. The authors, both of whom are active in the men's movement, obviously feel that the Warrior's existence must be recognized, not repressed, because its unharnessed potential threatens psychic stability. Their book offers much food for thought. Illustrations not seen by PW. (Sept.)
