-Dr. Mario Jacoby, Ph. D., C. J. Jung Institute, ZurichIn the Makings of Maleness, Jungian analyst Peter Tatham argues that the time for the hero as a model for maleness is past, and suggests that many of the difficulties between men and women, as well as the patriarchal slant of our culture, result from an over reliance upon the heroic as an archetypal stance that underlies consciousness. What maleness needs today is not merely to be more aware of its female counterpart, but to develop a different understanding of its own male nature. As a model more in keeping with the epoch and its needs, Tatham puts forward this archetypal image in the person and story of Daedalus, the master-craftsman of Greek mythology.

Peter Tatham, by overturning various stereotypical positions, frees the reader to examine the notion that there can exist many different kinds of maleness.
