A Terrible Love of War

FREE READ A Terrible Love of War REVIEW Ì A Terrible Love of War SUMMARY · GRUPOSIAM.CO ☆ James Hillman War is a timeless force in the human imagination and indeed in daily life Engaged in the activity of destruction its soldiers and its victims discover a paradoxical yet profound sense of existing of being human In A Terrible Love of War James Hillman one of today's mos. I have read uite a few books about war especially about Vietnam wanting to reinforce my belief that war is a really bad idea regardless of how regularly it happens So I picked this book at least partially enticed by the title A Terrible Love of War As I often do I looked at a few GR reviews before I started reading I find that it helps me to prime the pump Especially with a book that looks like it will reuire some brain work I mean it s listed as psychology and philosophy and war Sounds like a challenge to meI have been reading short thin books recently In addition to the enticing title I also selected this book off my shelf because it is relatively thin 217 pages of text Then I read the words and was trapped before I could put it downThis is a book published in 2004 before Goodreads began in December 2006 so misses the normal bump of readers that a book often experiences just after publication As of today there are only 122 ratings and fourteen reviews Most of the reviews are very short But the average of the ratings is 406 James Hillman wrote 27 books before this one including one Re Visioning Psychology that was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize He wrote A Terrible Love of War late in his life Hillman was a post Jungian who initiated archetypal psychology in the early 1970s He died in 2011 at the age of 85 Archetypal Psychology relativizes and deliteralizes the notion of ego and focuses on what it calls the psyche or soul and the deepest patterns of psychic functioning the fundamental fantasies that animate all life Archetypal psychology likens itself to a polytheistic mythology in that it attempts to recognize the myriad fantasies and myths gods goddesses demigods mortals and animals that shape and are shaped by our psychological lives In this framework the ego is but one psychological fantasy within an assemblage of fantasies Archetypal psychology is along with the classical and developmental schools the third school of post Jungian psychology Source I think it helps to put a face and voice with a book Here is about eight minutes of words from author James Hillman about psyche This book contains the awareness of a genius or the ramblings of a madman You decide which There are a lot of indented words in this LONG REVIEW to help you decide This is indeed a warning Here are the first words from the book One sentence in one scene from one film Patton sums up what this book tries to understand The general walks the field after a battle Churned earth burnt tanks dead men He takes up a dying officer kisses him surveys the havoc and says I love it God help me I do love it so I love it than my life We can never prevent war or speak sensibly of peace and disarmament unless we enter this love of war The first chapter of the book is titled War is normal Sounds obvious enough right I base the statement war is normal on two factors we have already seen its constancy throughout history and its ubiuity over the globe These two factors reuire another basic acceptability Wars could not happen unless there were those willing to help them happen Conscripts slaves indentured soldiers unwilling draftees on the contrary there are always masses ready to answer the call to arms to join up get in the fight There are always leaders rushing to take the plunge Every nation has its hawks Moreover resisters dissenters pacifists objectors and deserters rarely are able to bring war to a halt The saying Someday they ll give a war and no one will come remains a fond wish War drives everything else off the front page If you read this book and based on the number of GR ratings you probably won t you will have to decide if Hillman is thinking outside the box or is off the wall It is very likely you will find your beliefs about why people are the way they are challenged He is often bracketed with Joseph Campbell an American mythologist writer and lecturer best known for his work in comparative mythology and comparative religionAs is often the case reading a person s obituary gives you a good synopsis of herhis life Thus a couple of uotes from the NY Times Hillman was a charismatic therapist and best selling author whose theories about the psyche helped revive interest in the ideas of Carl Jung animating the so called men s movement in the 1990s and stirring the pop cultural air Mr Hillman followed his mentor s Carl Jung lead in taking aim at the assumptions behind standard psychotherapies including Freudian analysis arguing that the best clues for understanding the human mind lay in myth and imagination not in standard psychological or medical concepts Feelings like anxiety and depression he said are rooted not in how one was treated as a child or in some chemical imbalance but in culture in social interactions in human nature and its churning imagination For Mr Hillman a person s demons really were demons and the best course was to accept and understand them To try to banish them he said was only to ask for trouble Some people in desperation have turned to witchcraft magic and occultism to drugs and madness anything to rekindle imagination and find a world ensouled Mr Hillman wrote in 1976 But these reactions are not enough What is needed is a revisioning a fundamental shift of perspective out of that soulless predicament we call modern consciousness I am stumbling around stealing the words of others but giving credit you ll notice to share with you the content and impact of this book I feel somewhat like an academic who is not prepared to take this course I had a hard time imagining that I would make it to the end of this relatively short book But it is packed with information and lassoed me in uickly Here are a couple of his paragraphsWar certainly does rely upon the individual s repressions andor aggressions pleasure in demolition appetite for the extraordinary and spectacular mania of autonomy War harnesses these individual urges and procures their compliance without which there could be no wars but war is not individual psychology writ large Individuals certainly fight ruthlessly and kill families feud and harbor revenge but this is not war Soldiers are not killers Even well trained and well lead infantrymen have a strong unrealized resistance toward killing which tactically impedes the strategy of every engagement Only a polis city state society can war The only source of war is politics said Clausewitz Politics is the womb in which war develops For war to emerge from the womb for the individual to muster aggression and appetites there must be an enemy The enemy is the midwife of war Mind you now there may not actually be an enemy All along we are speaking of the idea of an enemy a phantom enemy It is not the enemy that is essential to war and that forces wars upon us but the imagination Imagination is the driving force especially when imagination has been preconditioned by the media education and religion and fed with aggressive boosterism and pathetic pieties by the state s need for enemies The imagined phantom swells and clouds the horizon we cannot see beyond enmity The archetypal idea gains a face Once the enemy is imagined one is already in a state of war Once the enemy has been named war has already been declared and the actual declaration becomes inconseuential only legalistic The invasion of Ira began before the invasion of Ira it had already begun when that nation was named among the axis of evil If you have read all these words you have some idea what James Hillman was about I know I had never heard of him and certainly did not realize what I was getting into when I picked up this book I have a hard time clearing my mind I should work on meditation and you sure need a clear mind to absorb what this book has to say It is slow going I had to plod along but was often captivated by the message to the extent I could understand it Hillman gathers and uses very interesting facts from a lot of sources that are well footnoted that I can read and absorb even when I do not necessarily agree with or understand the conclusions This book contains a ton of information The notes and bibliography are impressive additions Wouldn t this have been a great college course Too bad Hillman moved on to the happy hunting grounds before the free online education at wwwcourseraorg got its start He might have loved it imagine teaching thousands of students from around the world Hillman was a popular speaker and I am sure he would have loved the chance to reach so many people with his ideasI started out being shocked by Hillman s writing It is necessary to fall in love with war if you have any hope of mitigating it Really But as I read about him and his ideas I was admiring even when I was not convinced He was asking me to throw aside my lifetime of learning about psychology and to take a brand new approach He argued that reality is a construct of the imagination the stuff of myths dreams fantasies and images uote from Deep stuff and hard to grasp for me Kind of what Hillman says about war you have to understand it and love it Accept is another word maybe in order to have any hope of making change I will have to work on understanding before I can consider if I agree As a person who has wanted to end war for a long long time it seems like I should have some understanding of Hillman s conceptsSo here is what it comes down to for me Our civilian distain and pacifist horror all the legitimate deep felt aversion to everything to do with the military and the warrior must be set aside This because the first principle of psychological method that any phenomenon to be understood must be sympathetically imagined No syndrome can be truly dislodged from the cursed condition unless we first move imagination into its heart Can I buy this Can I do this I think I ve got a way to go down that road where a different language is spoken and the signs are confusingChapter One War Is Normal War is a mythical happening and those immersed in it are removed to a mythical state of being This chapter grabbed me almost immediately I used a lot of post it notes marking interesting spots Because of the wealth of information I gave this chapter 4 starsChapter Two War Is Inhuman How the war battlefields from many eras affect Mother Earth We see that war respects no limits of time space or methods Men lose fear and caution That Mythology as an important factor in war even today is a little too out there for me 25 starsChapter Three War Is Sublime War has weapons that hold beauty and violence in permanent embrace There is simply love for war itself and love for a leader The increase of American aggressiveness comes from the proliferation of weapons not TV But don t expect gun control This chapter is a mix of captivating bits and dull bits Another 25 starsChapter Four Religion Is War If we understand that war is religion we should think about the idea that religion is war The Greeks did not believe in their gods they lived with them as myths This chapter will reuire a lot work by me to understand it Again 25 starsI did not follow the focus on mythology throughout the book That is a problem for a relationship with Hillman s ideas It was a combination of not completely understanding and not being able to put aside my previous versions of the truth One thing I might do is to continue reading some of Hillman s books like his Pulitzer Prize nominated book mentioned earlier But I will have to decide if I get it enough to move forward If you have a good brain and want to try out a view of war that will likely be new to you you might try this book out This dense but mostly readable are those two things compatible book gets three stars from
