Book Description

30 Dec 1998
C.G. Jung's ideas continue to be of interest to many readers. Murray Stein, a longtime Jungian therapist and author, provides readers with an accessible introduction to the essential Jungian ideas. A major challenge to anyone who is trying to understand Jung's thought is the piecemeal way in which Jung communicated his ideas over his 60-year career - the result was 18 volumes of dense, often repetitious, prose. Stein provides a unified, comprehensive summary of Jung's vision of psychological and spiritual life. Written in a user-friendly style with lively anecdotes and helpful examples that illustrate some of Jung's abstract ideas. This text covers: the collective unconscious; human consciousness and the structure of the ego; synchronicity; the complexes; shadow; psychic energy; self; persona; individuation; and anima/animus.

5.0 out of 5 stars A summary view of Jung 22 Oct 2011
Reading Jung is never going to be an easy ride but it is made all the more understandable and rewarding by Murray Stein in this interesting book.
Stein's comprehensive knowledge of the complete works of Jung , his understanding of the Human Psyche based on years of experience, and his own personal interpretations make this a worthwhile read, but also give the reader new insights and fuller comprehension of what is a complicated and difficult field of study. The effort required is more than worth it, and as a starting point for a beginner or as an advanced tool in Jungian study, this book is a useful source for direction.
