The Outer Limits of Inner Truth presents an in-depth interview with Dr. Robert Moore and focuses on his book "King, Warrior, Magician, Lover: Rediscovering the Archetypes of the Mature Masculine." The show features three questioners including previous OLIT Guests Chris Duane & Ryan Brooks. In "King Warrior", Dr, Moore and his co-author Douglas Gillette explore today's crisis in masculine identity and describe its two major causes - the disappearance of masculine rites of passage and patriarchy itself. They define the four mature male archetypes - the King (the energy of just and creative ordering), the Warrior (the energy of self-disciplined, aggressive action), the Magician (the energy of initiation and transformation), and the Lover (the energy that connects men to others and the world) - as well as the four immature patterns (Divine Child, Oedipal Child, Precocious Child, and Hero). Moore and Gillette believe the developmental history of every man is, in large part, the story of his failure or success at discovering within himself the archetypes of mature masculinity. Dr. Robert Moore is Distinguished Service Professor of Psychology, Psychoanalysis and Spirituality in the Graduate Center of the Chicago Theological Seminary where he is the Founding Director of the new Institute for Advanced Studies in Spirituality and Wellness. An internationally recognized psychoanalyst and consultant in private practice in Chicago, he has served as a Training Analyst at the C.G. Jung Institute of Chicago and is Director of Research for the Institute for Integrative Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy and the Chicago Center for Integrative Psychotherapy.
