'Every page is clear and interesting, taking one closer to understanding why Jung's thought was so profound. Examples, models and case histories are provided.' Economist Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) left behind him a vast collection of valuable and original contributions to psychology; but because at first sight some of his ideas appear obscure, Jung has never been widely appreciated. His emphasis upon the spiritual aspects of human nature provides an important contrast with Freud's insistence upon the physical. This very clear exposition of Jung's 'analytical psychology' will convince a wide audience that Jung's ideas are not only comprehensible, but also have an especial relevance to the times we live in.
The editor, Anthony Storr, is a doctor, psychiatrist and analyst (trained in the school of C.G.) and author of 'Jung' (a Fontana Modern Master,1973) amongst many others.
`An excellent introduction for students and a piece of scrupulous elucidation for those who are acquainted with Jung's work but find themselves, at times, overpowered by his excesses. Dr Storr is coolly unpartisan and informative.'
