The Heathen Psyche

ByErik Goodwyn

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Using the potent psychological symbolism of Beowulf and other material, Dr. Goodwyn uses modern depth psychology to look at how the heathen mindset deals with primordial human problems such as rage, depression, trauma, anxiety, grief and mortality itself. Using an in-depth, scholarly analysis of the world of Beowulf and other texts combined with clinical observations, Dr. Goodwyn provides a uniquely heathen perspective on some of life's most vexing challenges. Here we find how the heathen spirit counters suffering not with airy analysis, wishful fantasy or dogmatic assertions, but with story, kin, craft, connection, honor, and most of all courage.
