Two new publications by Robert D. Romanyshyn:

Essays Toward an Imaginal Psychology

"Each of the essays of this book explores the intricacies of
the currents of the heart, developing the vocabulary for one's
own voice rather than the speaking for soul that characterizes
most psychology. The life of the soul in this book shines through
the intersecting labyrinths of phenomenology, depth psychology,
and poetry. Perhaps the most important of the disciplines for
this work is phenomenology because it assures that our author
never falls into theorizing about the world but is committed to
letting the inner qualities of the things of the world speak for
themselves. The fundamental tenant of this book is that we are
here to learn to listen."

Robert Sardello, Director, The School of Spiritual Psychology

"Every time I read the work of Robert Romanyshyn I am
touched by his honesty, imagination, originality and depth of
vision. His psychological insight and poetic sensibility
resonate with the force and profundity of a man who lives
a full and soulful life."

Stanton Marlon, Ph.D., ABPP
Director, C.G. Jung Institute Analyst Training Program
of Pittsburgh, and Author and editor of
"Salt and the Alchemical Soul" and
"Fire in the Stone: The Alchemy of Desire"

Images and Stories of Psychological Life

"This brilliant and lucid book, now available in the second
edition, takes us into genuinely new territory. It revises our
ideas of psychology and science, and it offers original thoughts
on metaphor. It is a text thwich anyone seriously itnerested in
the broader reaches of psychology should read, and from
which every reader will profit."

Edward S. Casey,
Professor of Philosophy, SUNY at Stony Brook

"In this provocative book, Robert Romanyshyn writes of
metaphor with the precision and sensitivity of both philosopher
and poet. His argument for the essentially paradoxical nature
of experience is a powerful antidote to the literalism of our

Louise Cowan,
Professor Emeritus of Literature, University of Dallas

"There are less than a handful of individuals who have the
capacity to bring truly creative thought to the field of
psychology and whose writing on the subject is both original
and therapeutic. Robert Romanyshyn is one of those
individuals. His writing keeps soul open, flexible, mobile, and
able to resonate with depth."

Robert Sardello,
Author of "Love and the World"

"Romanyshyn explores the assumptions regarding person,
others, body, and world, that are the cornerstones of
scientific psychology, and he compellingly dissolves these in
terms of the metaphors of our cultural history. In doing so he
articulates the irreducibly metaphorical character of
psychological life and opens the possibility of a
phenomenological depth psychology. This little book is a
classic in phenomenological psychology and metabletics;
it is essential reading for anyone concerned with the meaning
and direction of psychology."

Roger Brooke, Ph.D.
Professor of Psychology, Duquesne University,
and author of "Jung and Phenomenology"
