Jung and Film 1 - (English, Korean and Italian)

Jung and the Postmodern - (English and Italian)

Contemporary Jungian Analysis: Post-Jungian Perspectives from the Society of Analytical Psychology (co-edited with Ian Alister) - (English and Bulgarian)

Details of the books are on this page and the next

Jung and the postmodern
The Interpretation of realities

Jung and the Postmodern is vital reading for everyone interested in contemporary culture, not only Jungians and psychotherapists who want to explore the social relevance of their discipline, but anyone who shares a passionate concern for where we are heading in these postmodern times.

"This is a book to return to over and over again; it will be worth it every time." Professor David Hewison, Journal of Analytical Psychology 

"I have never believed in a book as much as I believe in this one"  Andrew Samuels

Jung & Film 
Post-jungian takes on the moving image

Co-edited with Ian Alister, the first Jung & Film collection brought together the best new writing from both sides of the Atlantic and launched a new field in Jungian and film studies alike. It has since seen an Italian and a Korean translation

Ten years later Chris followed this up with Jung & Film II The Return - thus securing a growing franchise! Co-edited this time with Luke Hockley reviews have said:

"The take-up by Media and Film departments, clinical trainings and industry creatives alike shows how resistance to all things Jungian has witnessed a fast dissolve" Andrew Samuels, University of Essex

Human Being Human
Culture and the Soul


Published in 2005, this book explores the classical question 'What is human being?' Chapters range from "Who's in charge here? Knowledge, power and human being" to, "That thinking feeling" and the related question "Is modern consciousness different?"

The book is structured around brief panel essays with a distinctly personal tone - "The rise of revulsion: spitting and the Stones"; "What is the double when the original is gone"; "What's wrong with 'Hollywood' anyway?" and "I lived with the speaking clock".

"Anyone who is also in awe of the narratives that drive our lives will love this book" Paul Morrison, Oscar winning writer/director of Solomon and Gainor 1998 Film 4

"This book is deeply rooted in a concern with letting us explore in words, images and actions who we are, not just what life has turned us into" Professor Luke Hockley

Visible mind
Movies, Modernity and the Unconscious

Visible Mind explores why film is so important to contemporary life, how film influences us psychologically as individuals and how it affects us culturally as collective social beings.  A range of themes are discussed including: the face, the shadow, narrative and story; reality in films; and 'Cinema, Jung and the American psyche: How Europe got to know the mind of America through the movies'

Unique to Visible Mind are several interviews with industry professionals from Gemma Jackson (Production design, Game of Thrones, Bridget Jones) to Jonathan Morris (film editor for Ken Loach) and Tom Hurwitz ASC (cinematographer Can You Bring It; The Queen of Versailles) who are all posed the question 'Where does the work happen?'

"There is something alchemical in the way that Chris conjures up his psychological insights from the base materials of celluloid and sound, much like the movies themselves". Dr Luke Hockley, Professor of Media Analysis
