Book Description

Jan 1991
"Neumann argues his case with a boldness and passion well matched by his penetrating insights and thoughtfulness. I welcome this book as the first notable attempt to formulate the ethical problems raised by the discovery of the unconscious and to make them a subject of discussion." --From the foreword by C. G. Jung

4.0 out of 5 stars Great topic, shame about the language 25 April 2012
By Kiwi
Although this book was written some time ago, and the world is changing fast, nevertheless the topic is very relevant today. Erich Neumann looks at the possibility of a new set of ethics developing in society, one that requires a lot more conscious action on the part of the individual. He suggests that this new ethic is appearing in more and more cases and will gradually replace the old ethic which most great religions had developed.... the new ethic is the next stage in our development.
The only problem I had with this book is the language used. It was originally written in German and has obviously been translated by a German speaker because the language is often unnecessarily complicated.
Despite this, I found the book very interesting... and hopeful that amongst all the current chaos something is developing in a positive direction, even if it may be difficult to see at the moment.

5.0 out of 5 stars The indispensable depth psychology of human evil 30 Dec 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A compact, unique and eloquent book by one of the grand-masters of Jungian psychology. Neumann examines the reality of human evil and the shadow of our species, with all the depth and subtlety it deserves.Every bit as relevant to our 21st century evil of climate change "propaganda / denial" as it is to Nazism & the twentieth century's other totalitarian barbarisms.

5.0 out of 5 stars The morals of a deeper understanding of life 9 May 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Once you are connected with the inside you are able to disentangle from the prejudices and the general morals views of the epoch, and you are able to fight for your responsibility in a certain dilemma which concerns yourself now and then. You could not escape from that deep ethic. C.G. Jung has a very important preface which I kindly recommend to every and each reader.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very important! Feed your shadow! 14 Nov 2010
By Ross James Browne - Published on Amazon.com
The most important concept to come out of this book is the idea of feeding the shadow. This means we must give the devil his due from time to time. Did you know that the talisman is a minor form of evil intended to protect us from a worse evil? You will know all about this if you read Erich Neumann. There is no sense in trying to be good all of the time - it will just blow up in your face eventually. This is why we must learn to channel or canlize the libido in the proper manner - so that it does no real harm to ourselves or anyone else. Neumann is brilliant when it comes to teaching men how to feed their shadow - and divest ourselves of fear of the feminine - to prevent an unintended eruption of the shadow side of the unconscious. After all, the evil we can control is much less evil than the evil that is out of control. This is a great book for any man who wishes to take back control of sin and canlize the libido into a productive endeavor.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book 25 Feb 2013
By Ricardo Serna R - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Excellent choice, because it states that is the desaire to become a new human kind that will take us to a new ethics, just by trying to do the best person we can be. Great seller, great book.

5.0 out of 5 stars a real pity this is out of print... 18 May 2000
By Craig Chalquist, PhD, author of TERRAPSYCHOLOGY and DEEP CALIFORNIA - Published on Amazon.com
....no modern discussion of morality or ethics would be relevant without the insights of such a book. How can we strive to be ethical individuals without such a thorough understanding of what our shadow side means to our efforts?
