excellent introduction essay 29 Nov. 2012

This edition of these important lectures by C.G. Jung, given at Fordham University in 1912, is greatly enhanced by the excellent introduction by Sonu Shamdasani.
pre-jung jung, good for student of freud or jung or psychoanalysis or whatever 10 Jun. 2015

In many ways this is a more toned-down Freudianism that's easier to swallow, more optimistic, and more heavily mythological. Barely Jung at all, just yet, really. Overall, his inclination to view the Oedipus Complex as more metaphorical and his view of the libido as general psychic energy rather than sexual energy are probably the most significant modifications of orthodoc Freudianism here, and each is temptingly easier to accept — but maybe that easiness is precisely contrary to the point of psycho-analysis? Notable in this book is Jung's comparatively (to Freud) optimistic views regarding morality and civilization: he views morality as a basic, individual need, which if not satisfied itself gives rise to substitutive satisfactions; this is in many ways opposed to Freud's famous theory in "Civilization and its Discontents," written in 1930. It is also very interesting - if, again, suspiciously comforting - and either way worth thinking about. The ninth lecture in this book is a rather interesting case study; and the whole book is rather good and well-written, etc. Jung seems a bit more naïve and has a much worse historical sense even than Freud, to be sure. But overall, as a Freud fan and Jung skeptic, I was pleasantly surprised.
