Saturn and the Theoretical Foundations of an Emerging Discipline

Description

Saturn structures the rites of passage and initiations of life: at the precise time of birth Saturn fixes the natal chart, and it stands at the threshold of death. James Hillman's essay "On Senex Consciousness" provides the foundation for this issue: it is an homage to the Saturn archetype, forming the backbone for the entire volume. The contributors-including Richard Tarnas, Keiron Le Grice, Jessica Garfield-Kabbara, and Drew Dellinger-offer articles on such subjects as the potential for a feminine re-visioning of Saturn, a philosophical investigation into the three modalities of time, the relation between psychological and archetypal complexes, the connection between participatory theory and archetypal cosmology, a review of Sean Kelly's book Coming Home: The Birth and Transformation of the Planetary Era, and archetypal analyses of Dante's Saturn return, the Saturn-Neptune complex in the life and works of Virginia Woolf, and the relation between karma, collective field dynamics, and the Saturn-Pluto complex.
