Remembering James Hillman across the web

13 May 2018
The James Hillman Symposium this year is Friday 26 - Saturday 27 October at the Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture in Dallas, Texas. The theme is "Animal Presences":
“By bringing our superior postures to the level of the creature . . ., we begin to see as they do; a transposed eye. . . . To see with the creaturely eye is an act of imagining the world so that it appears in continuing animation, in a continuing play of creation with which human consciousness participates by means of imagining acts. Not the creative imagination as some wondrous gift that creates images, art, and ideas. Rather, the transposed eye itself releases what is into its own createdness, each event as as a presentation of creativity.” James Hillman, Animal Presences
1 September 2017
The Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture announces plans for the 6th annual James Hillman Symposium to be held Friday 27 Oct. and Saturday 28 Oct. 2017 with the theme Mythic Figures: "More than a dozen internationally known experts in archetypal psychology will explore the Olympians, the Titans, and other legendary figures in talks, breakout sessions, and informal conversations with participants. The featured book this year is Hillman’s epic work: Mythic Figures, volume 6.1 of the Uniform Edition of the Writings of James Hillman co-published by Spring Publications and the Dallas Institute, edited by Dr. Joanne Stroud, Director of Publications for the Dallas Institute."

Pacifica Graduate Institute hosts Climates of Change and the Therapy of Ideas conference from Thursday 21 April to Sunday 24 April, 2016.

"In this calling, we are deeply inspired by James Hillman, the founder of Archetypal Psychology, toward creating a future that undertakes a critical “re-visioning” and “re-imagining” of our world. He urged us to create a therapy of ideas, “to bring in new ideas so that we can see the same old patterns differently.” 

The James Hillman Symposium for October 16-17, 2015 at the Dallas Institute will address Senex and Puer.

"The 2015 James Hillman Symposium will address Hillman’s third volume, Senex and Puer. Senex and Puer are Latin terms for “old man” and “youth” and personify oppositional states such as old versus new, authority versus creativity, and control versus impulse. Speakers will discuss these primary patterns for how we perceive ourselves and others. Join us for a lively conversation of Hillman’s work in a series of talks and roundtable discussions."

"Teachers We Trust" from Thomas Moore
James Hillman
"Psychologist James Hillman died in October. He is the most insightful person I’ve ever encountered, in life or in print. I put him above Plato and Aristotle. Here’s one lesson I took from him: He never turned off the switch of his genius. He was always on. Even on his deathbed, he was the thinker and the teacher. Today, people often criticize thinking as an evasion of emotion. Not so with James. He was a passionate and emotional man. If you really want to be taught, challenged as well as inspired, read anything by James Hillman. If you take it in, your life will never be the same.
[Note: Thomas Moore wrote the introduction for A Blue Fire: Selected Writings by James Hillman]"

Pantheatre Presents James Hillman-Tribute Workshop
IMPACTS April 26 - May 3 2013
"James Hillman's IMPACT on Pantheatre is mainly in the construction and figuring out of performance narrative, in what he called: making "image-sense". It applies especially to the setting-up of texts in performance. Hillman was a master at narrative mobility, which is the most important aspect of our training: how to make a move. There is a lot of talk today of "non-narrative" theatre. Hillman makes us end up in something like "non-narrative narrative theatre". (Enrique Pardo).

"To honor and continue to learn from Dr. Hillman, the Institute initiates with this lecture an annual program aimed at descending into the rich depths of his lifelong study – in his own words, a "psychology deliberately affiliated with the arts, culture, and the history of ideas, arising as they do from the imagination."

by John Beebe
Quadrant: The Journal of the C.G. Jung Foundation

2 March 2012
Summary: "James Hillman is remembered as the author of papers and books, including Senex and Puer: An Aspect of the Historical Present, The Feeling Function, and A Terrible Love of War, that both explicate and deconstruct the premises of depth psychology in general and Jungian analytical psychology in particular. Although Hillman helped to found the school of Archetypal Psychology, the author of this memorial, who knew him personally, does not find him to be doctrinaire; rather he challenged even his followers, in raising his individual voice to assert the duty of psychological citizenship to pursue fresh understandings. The author argues that although Hillman's eventual subject was the soul of the world, the way he addressed it was quintessentially American."

"'I am dying yet in fact, I could not be more engaged in living. One thing I'm learning is how impossible it is to lay out a border between so-called 'living' and 'dying'." – James Hillman

"'One thing I'm learning' – dying, yet still learning. Still teaching. That was the man." – Michael Ventura

In response to Thomas Moore’s blog post "Remembering James Hillman" for The Huffington Post, Chuck McIntyre’s comment includes, “Many of us owe a great deal to James and his wittisms, along with his genius left in his writings.” Thomas Moore responds, “Thank you, Chuck. I'd like to see remembrances like this from many who met James.” Below are some responses to James Hillman’s death across the English-writing web.
