James P. Driscoll, PhD, is one of the foremost critics of Renaissance literature from a Jungian perspective. He is author of Identity in Shakespearean Drama, The Unfolding God of Jung and Milton, and Shakespeare and Jung: The God in Time.
Here he distinguishes between "actual god" (a term used occasionally by Carl Jung) and social images of god that are maintained by different cultures and civilizations. He suggests that god is the organizing principle behind the entire universe and that this is akin to the organizing principle of each individual psyche. He explains that god is, somehow, intimately related to time's irreversible nature -- for it is this uncomfortable fact that generates meaning in our lives.
New Thinking Allowed host, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, is author of The Roots of Consciousness, Psi Development Systems, and The PK Man. Between 1986 and 2002 he hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series. He is the recipient of the only doctoral diploma in "parapsychology" ever awarded by an accredited university (University of California, Berkeley, 1980).
