Dr. Mathes is also a contributor to Psyche & the City: A Soul's Guide to the Modern Metropolis (Edited by Tom Singer).
Does a city have a soul? How does the individual psyche - as long-time resident, recent arrival or visitor - experience different cities? The cities explored by Jungian analysts and critical thinkers include the following:
Bangalore • Berlin • Cairo • Cape Town • Jerusalem • London • Los Angeles • Mexico City • Montreal • Moscow • New Orleans • New York • Paris • San Francisco • Sao Paulo • Shanghai • Sydney • Zurich
"If a visitor stays long enough, he will begin to recognize how the psychic energy of New Orleans plays on him in a bipolar movement of land and sea, abundance and deprivation, greed and generosity, suffering and ecstacy, Apollonion and Dionysian attitudes, and, as the name of two streets suggest, Piety and Desire." --- Dr. Charlotte Mathes: "Archetypal Density and the Unconscious" in Psyche & the City.
