Risky Business: A Jungian View of Environmental Disasters and the Nature Archetype

This book combines Jung's complex theory on the nature archetype with Stephen Foster's own professional experience as a scientist working on hazardous waste clean up. It is a groundbreaking exploration of how Jungian psychology can give us new understanding into environmental challenges and support our relationship to nature. 


"Stephen's book is a unique approach to our relationship with nature and the environment. He draws on his considerable personal experience with first-hand accounts of environmental destruction and contamination, and deftly illuminates our complex relationship to nature through Jungian psychology and classic myths. He suggests a healing approach that environmental problems are an opportunity to become more conscious of our human condition."
