Preface

This brilliant book brings Pan back to life by following C.G. Jung’s famous saying that the gods have become our diseases. Chapters on nightmare panic, masturbation, rape and nympholepsy, instinct and synchronicity, and Pan’s female lovers — Echo, Syrinx, Selene, and the Muses — show the goat-god at work and play in the dark drives and creative passions of our lives. (Includes a full translation of EPHIALTES, Wilhelm Heinrich Roscher’s masterful nineteenth-century mythological-pathological treatise on Pan and the demons of the night).
