My research and writing focuses on relations between sociology (especially Max Weber), cultural anthropology and Jungian psychology. Background to these theoretical interests are two special areas of substantive concern: gender and the natural environment.

Subjects: Sociology

Biography

After a B.A. (Hons) in Social Sciences at what is now Glasgow Caledonian University, I completed a Ph.D. at the University of Edinburgh, seeking to work out an approach to gender in terms of the sociology of Max Weber.  It was here that my interest in Jung first began.  Later I took an M.Sc. in Environmental Science at the University of Strathhclyde.  Since then I have taught sociology and other subjects at West College Scotland, and (briefly) at Napier University.
