More About the Author
Robin Robertson has spent a life-time bridging the worlds of psychology, science, business and the arts. He's a clinical psychologist and writer who has published seventeen books and more than two hundred articles in either psychology or his hobby field of magic.
He's lectured widely and has taught graduate level courses on Jungian psychology for both the California Institute of Integral Studies, and for the Jungian Studies program at Saybrook University.
Before becoming a psychologist, he was a vice-president of software development for a large insurance company, and for nearly thirty years, he's been a consultant responsible for all computer decisions to a multi-employer pension plan.
Robin has separate undergraduate degrees in mathematics and English literature, as well as an M.A. in counseling psychology, and a Ph.D. in clinical psychology.
Robin's books, often on Jungian psychology or the relationship between psychology and science, have gone through multiple printings, new revised editions, and foreign translations. Since 1986, he's been a writer, editor, columnist and editorial board member of the Jungian journal "Psychological Perspectives" (a beautiful journal that speaks not merely to specialists, but to everyone who loves Jung.)
He has also been heavily involved with the applications of chaos and complexity theory, and, has been a contributing editor for "Cybernetics & Human Knowing" (a journal that looks at deep issues about the nature of reality).
He is a life-time amateur magician, and a member of the Order of Merlin of the International Brotherhood of Magicians, who has created or co-created original effects that have appeared in six books and many magic magazines.
