House MD is a globally successful and long-running medical drama.
House: the Wounded Healer on Television employs a Jungian
perspective to examine the psychological construction of the series
and its namesake, Dr Gregory House. The book also investigates the
extent to which the continued popularity of House MD has to do with
its representation of deeply embedded cultural concerns. It is
divided into three parts - Diagnosing House, Consulting House and
Dissecting House, - and topics of discussion include: specific
details, themes, motifs and tropes throughout the series narrative,
character and visual structure the combination of performative
effects, text and images of the doctor and his team the activities
of the hero, the wounded healer and the puer aeternus. Offering an
entirely fresh perspective on House MD, with contributions from
medical professionals, academics and therapists, this book is
essential reading for students and scholars of Jungian psychology.
The inclusion of a glossary of Jungian terms means that this book
can also be enjoyed by fans of House MD who have been seeking a
more in-depth analysis of the series.
