James Hillman is a psychologist and author of The Soul´s Code, recently at the top of the New York Times bestseller list. His essay ´´Going Bugs´´ is a classic exposition of the meaning of bugs in the human psyche. Hillman examines the role that bugs - insects and creepy-crawlies - play in dreams and how human reaction to them is symptomatic of larger concerns about animals and the natural world. Satya talked with him recently about bugs and the ducks and chickens with whom he lives in eastern Connecticut. 1. Language: English. Narrator: James Hillman.
