The Witcher

In a world where men are monsters and monsters are men - who is the real monster? The Psychgeist of Pop Culture: The Witcher delves into the psychology of the characters and stories of this popular franchise. From the original book collection to best-selling video game series to the hugely popular Netflix show, The Witcher is a transmedia experience that has captivated hearts and minds across the globe.

In this series of edited essays, we explore the psychology behind what makes this fandom so captivating and dig deeper into why, in The Continent filled with magic, we found ourselves and our lives reflected in its stories. Topics discussed within these pages include grief, trauma, and resilience through the eyes of Yennefer and Ciri, leadership and parenting through the experiences of Tissaia and Vesemir, the ethics of the Witcher code, and the embodiment of Geralt himself (among others).
