In this sixth article concerning manifestations of the Hermes archetype in postmodern culture (part of the Alchemy and the Imagination series) the focus shifts to a range of subjectively experienced illnesses epidemic in our era. Using archetypal psychological foundations the Age of Hermes (late 'postmodernity') emerges as an age in which quite specific maladies predominate. Unfortunately most Westernised societies have yet to develop effective psychological and sociological antidotes to the current unacknowledged 'Hermesian inflation'.

Well written and interesting Ian (particularly as it follows a recent read of Jung's WOTAN...). The article illuminates understanding of present day 'archetypes' or 'gods' - how beings become their 'puppets'... enslaved to desire, losing happiness and freedom. What is the solution to this phenomena of "Ergriffenheit" - a state of being possessed?
