Chiron is the most celebrated of the centaurs of Greek mythology. Chiron was entrusted with the rearing and education of many Greek heroes including the healer Aesculapius. Descended from an ancient race, half-human and half-beast, centaurs were liminal figures who linked the instinctual and spiritual dimensions of human existence. Figures like Chiron symbolize a link between the wisdom of the body and newer forms of human consciousness.
Chiron Publications was founded in 1983. Our initial publications were in “The Chiron Clinical Series,” originating in seminars given at the “Ghost Ranch Conference” in New Mexico. These focused upon the intersection of Jungian and other psychoanalytic approaches to clinical practice. This link between different ways of viewing psychic life — hence the name “Chiron, the centaur who bridges different orders of existence — was extended to our ongoing series of books that emphasize Jungian approaches to mythology, literature, clinical practice, religion, feminism, literature, fairy tales, and gender issues.
