"the powerful images, or archetypes"

In the note for this phrase, Anzaldúa explains that her thought has been influenced by the book James Hillman's book Re-Visioning Psychology.  Hillman--former head of the Jung Institute in Zurich--is the foremost theoretician of archetypal psychology.   A good overview of Hillman's ideas can be found in The Depth of the Soul: James Hillman’s Vision of Psychology by Sanford L. Drob.
