Robin Robertson Ph.D. has spent a life-time bridging the worlds of science, psychology and the arts. He has worked as a clinical psychologist, mathematician, and actuary; within the computer field, he's been a systems analyst, software designer, computer executive and consultant. He has separate undergraduate degrees in mathematics and English literature, as well as an M.A. in counseling psychology, and a Ph.D. in clinical psychology.
Robin has written fourteen books and more than a hundred articles, often connected with Jungian psychology or the relationship between psychology and science, which have gone through multiple printings, new editions, and foreign translations. Since 1986, he's been a writer, editor, columnist and editorial board member of the Jungian journal Psychological Perspectives (a beautiful journal that speaks to everyone who loves Jung, not merely to experts.)
He has also been heavily involved with the applications of chaos theory in psychology as a writer, editor, speaker, and officer of the "Society for Chaos Theory in Psychology and the Life Sciences." And, in more recent years, he's been a consulting editor and contributor for the cybernetics journal Cybernetics & Human Knowing (a journal that looks at deep issues about the nature of reality). Regardless of the area he's dealing with, he writes and speaks about complex ideas in clear, nontechnical language.
He is a life-time amateur magician, and a member of the Order of Merlin of the International Brotherhood of Magicians, who has published five magic books and many original effects, in recent years often collaborating with the clever Scottish magician, Peter Duffie.
