Although he is often called the "founding father of the New Age," Carl Jung, the legendary Swiss psychiatrist best known for his groundbreaking concepts like the collective unconscious, archetype theory and synchronicity, often took pains to avoid any explicit association with mysticism or the occult. Yet Jung lived a life rich in paranormal experiences - arguing for the existence of poltergeists in a debate with Sigmund Freud, participating in seances, incorporating astrology into his therapeutic work, reporting a near death experience and collaborating with the pioneering ESP researcher, J. B. Rhine. It is these critical experiences - often fleetingly touched on in other biographies or critical studies and just as frequently used to make a case against Jung and his philosophies - that form the core of this exciting new biography, JUNG THE MYSTIC. Lachman assesses Jung's life and work from the viewpoint of Western esoteric tradition and helpfully places Jung in the context of other major esoteric thinkers, such as Rudolf Steiner, G. I. Gurdjieff and Emanuel Swedenborg. In that respect, this new biography appeals directly to the sensibility of spiritual readers who rightly see Jung as a pioneer of today's contemporary metaphysical culture.
