Dreams, Myths and Fairy Tales in Japan

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Dreams, Myths and Fairy Tales in Japan addresses Japanese culture insightfully, exploring the depths of the psyche from both Eastern and Western perspectives, an endeavor the author is uniquely suited to undertake. The present volume is based upon five lectures originally delivered at the prestigious round-table Eranos Conferences in Ascona, Switzerland. Readers interested in Japanese myth and religion, comparative cultural studies, depth psychology or clinical psychology will all find Professor Kawai’s offerings to be remarkably insightful while at the same time practical for their own daily work.
From the contents:
–Interpenetration: Dreams in Medieval Japan
–Bodies in the Dream Diary of Myôe
–Japanese Mythology: Balancing the Gods
–Japanese Fairy Tales: The Aesthetic Solution
–Torikaebaya: A Tale of Changing Sexual Roles 

Professor Hayao Kawai (1928 – 2007) of the International Research Center for Japanese Studies in Kyoto became interested in Western culture at an early age and has spent much of his life as a kind of ’ambassador’ between East and West. He first traveled to the United States in 1959 to study clinical psychology, then spent several years in Zurich training to become a Jungian analyst. In the ensuing years, he became a familiar honored guest at the Eranos Conferences in Ascona. Professor Kawai is the author and editor of more than fifty books on religious and psychological themes, and he has lectured throughout the world. His previous publications in English include »The Japanese Psyche« and »The Buddhist Priest Myôe: A Life of Dreams«.
