About

Discovering Wonder Woman is an ongoing research project into the psychology, mythology, and philosophy behind the famous superheroine. Originally intended to be a book, it turns out that the information works better as an image-rich blog.

William Moulton Marston was a cutting edge thinker and creator whose ideas were ahead of his time. Wonder Woman was his last and greatest contribution to the world, and a vessel to carry his philosophy into the world.

Decades before Wonder Woman, Marston invented DISC Theory, a psychological model that offered a path to psychological health and resilience, and counterpoint to the more traditional focus on abnormal and pathologized psychology. As a certified DISC trainer myself, I recognize Wonder Woman as a teacher of this personal development system. She is essentially a super life coach!

Wonder Woman also offers a trove of imagery that lends itself to Jungian interpretation. Examining archetypes in the context of a mythic universe with a powerful goddess at the center of it offers us new ways of looking at our own world. By cultivating Amazon wisdom, perhaps we can transform our social structures and power dynamics for the benefit of humanity.

If you want to support my continued Wonder Woman work, as well as other mythology-related projects, your patronage is very much appreciated.
