This chapter is devoted to a detailed description of the four archetypes, Power, Eros, Pneuma and Physis, that serve as the core of archetypal- motivational typology. Because archetypes are fundamental to the human psyche, their earliest expression is found in mythology, which offers the richest illustration of archetypal contents and dynamics. Following the mythological description of each archetype, I provide historical and psychological examples of that archetype’s influence on cultural and personal attitudes and behavior.
