Product Description

From the Back Cover

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 comprehensive, but also have an especial relevance to the times we live in.

"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."

"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."

--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars My 100-word book review 14 Sep 2006
Anthony Storr trained as a Jungian analyst, and this book is an excellent and lucid guide to Jung's ideas, such as the archetypes and the collective unconscious. Storr comes across as supportive to Jung but never blind to the great man's limitations as a communicator. Jung tended to be obscure, which does not help his readers. By contrast, Storr himself was a fine communicator, and his writing style is immensely readable. For anyone new to the subject, this is a very good introduction, and those already familiar with Jung and his ideas will still appreciate and benefit from this book.

Wow, this book changed my life. I read this when I was 24 years old and it has absolutely influenced every moment of my life since then. I have loved science and the scientific endeavour my whole life but science does not concern itself with metaphysical questions. This is where Jung steps in. He addresses the very root of our nature and his conclusions are so compelling and so rational (as rational can be in this ephemeral realm) that there can be no argument. James Hollis wrote that we should not pursue a science of the soul but here in Anthony Storr's summation of Jung we are given that very science. If you are a searcher this will re-define your life. Enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good introduction to Jung 28 Dec 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the first book I have read about Jung, specifically, so my comments are those of a neophyte. Forewarned is forearmed. Anyway, I thought this was a very well thought out, cogent presentation of a rather slippery topic. Storr, in my opinion, does a good job of sifting Jungian wheat from chaff; although he is an admirer of Jung, he can be pretty critical. Overall, I thought Storr did a very good job of presenting Jung's thoughts and contributions to theories of divided self, the positive role of myth, etc. The book does raise many questions which it leaves unanswered, but I suspect that is a function of Jung's eclectic philosophy, not Storr's writing style, which I thought was very clear. Overall, a good presentation, in the opinion of this highly unknowledgeable reader (although there are some pre-feminist comments that had me cringing).
