'In Time and the Psyche, a diverse selection of contributors explores the multi-layered aspects of time though the lens of analytical psychology. The book aims to bridge the gap between theory and practice, emphasizing time's fundamental role in the workings and expressions of the psyche, and additionally exploring cultural and clinical dimensions. The contributors deal with temporality in our inner world and its manifestations as expressed by products of our psyche, covering topics such as disturbances of temporality within the psychoanlytic session, the acausal connecting principle of synchronicity, time as expressed in film, objects, literature and culture, and temporality as understood in various types of dreams and imaginary practices. This book also explores the time-bound world, time versus timelessness, the realm of the eternal, human versus cosmic time, Chronos versus Kairos, and other temporality-related dimensions and their relationship to our psyche and our experience in the world. With contributors from backgrounds in clinical work, the arts, literature, and philosophy, this collection is unique in its scope."
