The bestselling, widely heralded, Jungian introduction to the psychological foundation of a mature, authentic, and revitalized masculinity. Redefining age-old concepts of masculinity, Jungian analysts Robert Moore and Douglas Gillette make the argument that mature masculinity is not abusive or domineering, but generative, creative, and empowering of the self and others. Moore and Gillette clearly define the four mature male archetypes that stand out through myth and literature across history:
Dream analysis, meditation, Jungian "active imagination" and ritual processes are among the tools set forth in a clear, concise map to territories of masculine selfhood.

I found the idea of understanding the human condition via the archetypes found in the myths we all share very compelling, and much more helpful than "traditional" psychological analysis. Thus disclaim-ed, this book was very helpful for me as a woman writer interested in creating believable heroes.
It explores the four basic archetypes that make up the male psyche- the King, the Warrior, the Magician, and the Lover- including what each looks like in childhood, what a poorly formed version looks like, and what a fully mature, "hero-material" version looks like. It also has a very interesting section on the "rite-of-passage" rituals that have traditionally ushered men from boyhood into manhood, which could be very helpful in designing a hero's inner journey throughout the course of a book.
Again, as a writer, this helps to provide some context when I'm trying to create a hero, or even a villain. It goes into the nuances of the male psyche that a majority of women- and, dare I say, men? I know that after reading this book, the heroes I create in the future will have that much more depth to them.
Excellent resource. Highly recommend! View all 3 comments.

I couldn't find it at my local new bookstores, but you can find it online new or used. Since I bought it used, it took me forever to find the tiny "Men's issues" section.
It was only one shelf in a rather large bookstore, but I finally found it tucked underneath the sexual self-help books. It was worth the effort. The four archetypes show their power from the first. These are not alien ideas forced onto us.
Rather, they are us, in a more pure form. The archetypes help us to see what is best in ourselves, as men. The King is the source of order, he is wise and just. The Warrior has boundless energy. He is devoted to a cause greater than himself, and fiercely loyal. The Magician is powerful and crafty, and he has the ability to detach himself from events and see more clearly. The Lover seeks beauty in all its forms, and delights in it. He can break down barriers and empathize with everyone.
This book is valuable for anyone who wants to know what it is to be a man.
King, Warrior, Magician, Lover by Robert Moore (ebook)
It is also valuable if you are interested in understanding depictions of masculinity, both positive and negative. I can easily think of people I know, or situations I have found myself in, and immediately see the application of these archetypes of masculinity. Moore and Gillette are definitely children of their age: With that in mind, I found the chapter on the Lover the most unbalanced.
This is the chapter that is the least burdened with scholarship or historical accuracy. It is also the least aware of the negative side of the archetype. The chapter on the King went into great depth on the bipolar shadow Kings, the Tyrant, and the Weakling. The chapter on the Lover talked about the Addicted Lover and the Impotent Lover, but many of the examples used for the Lover per se were really just as bad as the shadow forms.
Given that the Lover is the spirit of the age, it is probably hard to attain critical distance. Each one of the four archetypes has a strong relationship to one of Marston's four mental energies. This would have been hard to see, except that the woman who taught me about DiSC mentioned that many Fortune companies have CEOs with S personalities. Under the DiSC system, the Dominant type seems like the natural leader. Driven to succeed, quick to think, quick to work, charismatic.
Yet, the D energy can be very harsh and unyielding. This is because it is really like the Warrior. I think the confusion arises from the name.
When we in the Anglosphere think of a King, we think especially of the English kings, men like Richard the Lionhearted or Henry VIII, who had big ideas and big appetites, bundles of energy that got whatever they wanted. However, what we are really talking about here is no mere king, but the Emperor. The Emperor is the still center, the source of order who quells rebellion by the rumor of his imperturbability. Except in the direst of emergencies, the Emperor does not take the field of battle himself.
The Lover is like the Influencer. Always talking, focused on relationships, a great love of life, unconcerned about details. The Magician is the Conscientious type. Hardworking, knowledgable, focused on facts and results, quiet and reserved.
One needn't look too far to find things that don't match either.
Nonetheless, the convergence is striking. I am always interested when two separate lines of thought arrive at the same result. I look forward to reading what Brett on the Art of Manliness posts about this book in the future. This is a topic worth revisiting. A problem identified and addressed in this book, that boys now are growing into big boys instead of Men, is addressed on the detailed individual level more than the social level, even though the book acknowledges that the transition from boy to Man when executed correctly does not occur without help from elders.
Most of the book is devoted to the four archetypes with lots of examples of how they appear in Men a healthy state and how their malignant forms appear in old boys.

King, Warrior, Magician, Lover: Rediscovering the Archetypes of the Mature Masculine
An introspective, reflective reader might get some valuable insights about himself, insights about both his strengths and weaknesses. Some exercises are offered at the end, too, for applying the theory. I don't know whether the authors are right, but I think their ideas are plausible. Jun 25, Leah rated it it was ok Shelves: Showing its age, this one.
This appeared at the end too, pretty much out of left field, and made me do a legitimate double-take: At the same time, it is clear that the world is overpopulated with not only immature men but also tyrannical and abusive little girls pretending to be women.
It is time for men--particularly the men of Western civilization--to stop acc Showing its age, this one. It is time for men--particularly the men of Western civilization--to stop accepting the blame for everything that is wrong in the world. There has been a veritable blitzkrieg on the male gender, what amounts to an outright demonization of men and a slander against masculinity.
Is it clear? This is literally the first time you've mentioned this. Where the heck did all that come from?

Things kind of go back to the way they were throughout the whole book: But talk about leaving me with a bad taste in my mouth. Did we really need to spend the whole book being largely innocent, and then suddenly spew that out like a repressed Men's Rights' Activist blog entry?
If you're gonna try to make a point, and gain some pop culture cred, I suggest actually watching the movie you want to reference. Jul 22, Heather rated it liked it. I enjoyed this book, even though it is ostensibly written for men.
I read it because as an aspiring writer I wanted to understand a little more about male psychology, so I could hopefully create decent, realistic characters. The authors do emphasize that women do have paralell archetypes, so I did learn some things that I can use for myself. It's a good introduction; not very deep. It's very approachable and accessible to the average reader. I would have liked a little more in depth, but I can ac I enjoyed this book, even though it is ostensibly written for men.
I would have liked a little more in depth, but I can accept this book for what it is: Dec 30, Quan rated it it was ok Shelves: Eh, I'm not the biggest fan of this book. The authors argue that in today's society, there is a crisis of masculinity because we have gotten away from ancient traditions centered around the four archetypes that make up the book title.
However, their evidence is shaky at best. But they don't offer many reasons why we should necessarily be following these archetypes beyond the fact that they're old and they generally sou Eh, I'm not the biggest fan of this book.
But they don't offer many reasons why we should necessarily be following these archetypes beyond the fact that they're old and they generally sound cool sometimes. There isn't much empirical evidence to support the supposed ancient wisdom. It's seriously just like, "Shit's old. It's gotta be right. Prejudice against darker-skinned people is old as shit too but that doesn't mean it's right. Sexism is old as shit but that doesn't mean it's right. Exploitation is old as shit The authors also make some problematic statements.
There are a couple statements that lead me to believe they may be Islamophobic.
Their claim that Islam inherently tends towards aggressive Warrior energy is undermined by their conflation of mainstream Muslims with extremist jihadists. They also make dangerous though typical claims about history and sacrifices made in the name of progress, which at times seems to justify human atrocities and brutal injustice all for seeming "progress.
The whole book, I'm still generally with them like, "OK, there is a crisis in masculinity. Let us turn inward. Why did I just read this book? Like, are you guys seriously blaming gender equality for this "attack on men"?
Maybe it's that society has progressed and men need to progress our masculinity to adapt and let go of patriarchal ways.
Still, there are some things to take away. Though I don't see much distinction between what they call Boy psychology and Man psychology, I can see the archetypes and the polar spectrum that includes the shadow sides of each archetype. The archetypes they describe are certainly familiar in everyday life. These archetypes do provide some loose guidelines for how you may want to model yourself. I personally took a lot away from the chapters on the Magician and Lover archetypes.
So these archetypes can provide some guidance. Just don't expect too much from the authors. This is a book about men. It is also a book for men. Women can read it but it might make them angry. It makes some women angry just to hear about it, so be careful when you tell a woman that you are reading book about men and the masculine psyche. Taken from work done by Carl C.
Jung on the collective unconscious and subconscious archetypes, the two authors focus on men and four specific archetypes important to the development of the mature man.
Published in , the authors use psychoanalytic j This is a book about men. Published in , the authors use psychoanalytic jargon and references that are now controversial, but as a man reading this book, I could relate very well to what they were saying. King, Warrior, Magician, Lover are four basic building blocks in the psych of a psychologically mature adult male.
That man is adult, secure, sensitive, capable of making important decisions; able to master his own self and biology; able to master technology, special knowledge and share that knowledge with others; able to love and feel strong attachments and emotions but also able keep emotions balanced with other important aspects of life, such as family, work and health; and able to love a person, not just a sex object or disembodied body part to satisfy one's own needs.
The authors use many other examples to describe the healthy mature male psyche - my list is a poor substitute for theirs. The importance of reading this book, for a man, is to understand not just your own strengths, but especially to understand the parts of your life and personality that are underdeveloped and possibly dangerous to yourself and others, especially those you love, or think you love.
At the end of the book are some exercises to help the male reader to understand the parts of his life that need further development. Indeed, the underdeveloped King, if too strong becomes a tyrant, and if too weak becomes an ineffective weakling watch the movie The Lion in Winter for examples of both.
Nov 29, Ted rated it it was amazing Shelves: I'm so glad that I dove into this book. The YouTube channel 'Like Stories of Old' refers to this book in several video essays, which initially got me excited about the concepts proposed in it. I was so excited, in fact, that I didn't think twice about ordering 1-day shipping when I got it on amazon! With my strong love of mythology and philosophy, there was a lot of material covered in this book that connected with me deeply and instantly.
I've had a rough understanding of Jungian psychology for I'm so glad that I dove into this book. I've had a rough understanding of Jungian psychology for a while now, but any attempts I've made to dive deeper into it were quickly met with confusion and a sense of being overwhelmed. So the practical and cursory nature of the text made the Jungian ideas much more accessible. I felt an honest validation in reading a book directed specifically at men.
A lot of the problems and inner thoughts discussed in the chapters resonated with me.
And the fact that it was directly related to masculinity made it a deeper connection. And so with this, Moore's and Gillette's resounding themes of not being ashamed of one's masculinity, and accepting that femininity can sometimes overwhelm us, were equally validating.
This book felt like a safe space, like what a psychologist's session is supposed to be. What was also validating was the ways in which Moore and Gillette recommended readers do to put these ideas into practice.
