Abstract: Shame, although a long neglected psychological issue, is just beginning to receive the wider clinical attention it deserves (primarily from the affect theorists). Edelman's thoughts on it, an outgrowth of her Jungian analytical work, helps to clarify the depth of its overlooked and misinterpreted origin. To do this Edelman uses the fields of psychology, philosophy, mythology, classical scholarship, and theology. The final chapter suggests ways of healing a crippling sense of shame using each of these discipline's perspectives.
