Product Description


'Grounded in a thorough study of practically the whole of Jung’s published oeuvre as well as an innovative survey of psychology textbooks, Clare Crellin’s book makes a compelling case for the present-day relevance of Jung's personality theory. Crellin not only develops a helpful set of general criteria for evaluating personality theories but also, when applying these criteria to Jung's distinctive model, maintains an assured balance in stressing the scientific character of his thought while not shying away from the integral importance of its religious and alchemical aspects. Scholarly, sensitive, and insightful, this is an important contribution to both Jungian studies and personality psychology.' - Professor Roderick Main, Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Essex, UK

‘The distinctive comparative and multi-disciplinary approach of this book makes it invaluable, both to encourage understanding of the relevance of personality theory for contemporary clinical practice, and to re-stimulate critical interest in Jung's work. The book goes beyond Jung's theory alone, to offer a comprehensive framework for evaluating personality theories in general.’ - Professor John Hall, Centre for Health, Medicine and Society, Oxford Brookes University, UK

Successful Reappraisal of Carl Jung's Work 15 Dec. 2014
By Alexander Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Carl Jung is probably the 2nd most well known founder of psychology after Freud. However, today, because of the complexity and volume of his work, he is often discredited by modern science because of a cursory understanding of his engagement in things like alchemy and spirituality. Clare Crellin does an excellent job both explaining some of Jung's analytic theory, particularly with regard to individuation and differentiation, while at the same time addressing the often uninformed critique of Jung as a scientist of psychology. She posits that he was one of the most important personality theorist of all time, and then does and admirable job of grounding and documenting that position. So it is both a good book on understanding Carl Jung as a personality theorist, and also quite a good overview of much of his work.
