This is a Jungian analysis of four masculine archetypes. Another possible title could have been "In Defense of Masculinity". An excerpt:
We need to learn to celebrate authentic masculine power and potency, not only for the sake of our personal well-being as men and for our relationships with others, but also because the crisis in mature masculinity feeds into the global crisis of survival we face as a species. Our dangerous and unstable world urgently needs mature men and mature women if our race is going to go on at all into the future.
For some, this may read as outdated and sexist — and perhaps some of it is. However, I found it useful (though, over the top at times) when thinking about gender in society today. Pair with a good critical theory text to span the spectrum of perspectives.
