The essays collected in this volume provide a depth-psychological exploration of the relationship between violence and the soul. Soul, according to Jungian analyst Wolfgang Giegerich, is not merely the innocent recipient or victim of violence; it also produces itself through violent deeds and expresses itself in violent acts. Topics discussed include ritual slaughtering as primordial soul-making, shadow integration and the rise of psychology, blood-brotherhood and blood-revenge, the alchemy of history, child sacrifice, Islamic terrorism, and the animus as negation with special reference to Bluebeard.
