This article should be about Archetypal psychology and not just Hillmans beliefs on it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:38, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

Agree that wider coverage is needed[edit]

I agree with the last comment. My main criticism of this article is that it is too exclusively focussed on one theorist, James Hillman, from the archetypal school; I was hoping this article would give wider coverage to this subject, and list other archetypal Jungians, such as Rafael Lopez-Pedraza. I think too that it is important that this article makes it clear how this school differs from both the developmental and classical school of Jungian psychology.

Class Assignment[edit]

These are the editions that I made to this article: First of all I made influences a section rather than a sub-section and I added Carl Young, Henry Corbin and Edward Casey as influences (new sub-sections) and information for each to the article. I also put every section that was attributed to James Hillman as a sub-section under his section in order to organize the information more efficiently. Finally, I added the sections of Psychopathology and Therapy to the article with information under each. Mlsteele92 (talk) 13:45, 23 April 2013 (UTC)

Clarification needed[edit]

Thank you for your contributions Mlsteele92! Could you (if you are still around) or anybody else explain the sentence "Corbin [...] offers an ontological mode of location of archetypes of the psyche."? The article ontology doesn't really help here. With friendly regards, Lova Falk talk 07:31, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
