Publisher's Summary:
Why have Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, and The Phantom Menace captured the imagination of both children and adults for more than twenty years?

Myths have always been of interest to the pioneers of psychology. C.G. Jung believed that all myths could help us to comprehend the unconscious beliefs that all humans share. In The Journey of Luke Skywalker, Steven Galipeau explains the symbolism and meaning within George Lucas’s popular modern fairytale. Using Jung’s approach to dreams and myths, he reveals such themes as the battle between light femininity and dark masculinity, the conflict between nature and technology, and the development of the individual. He then shows the reader why the characters and concepts resonate so deeply with us.

Appealing to Star Wars fans as well as those interested in popular culture and contemporary myths and archetypes, The Journey of Luke Skywalker will bring new insight to the most popular film series of the last two decades.
