Product Description

Product Description

The field of Jungian psychology has been growing steadily over the last twenty years and awareness is increasing of its relevance to the predicaments of modern life. Jung appeals not only to professionals who are looking for a more humane and creative way of working with their clients, but also to academics in an increasingly wide range of disciplines.


This Handbook is unique in presenting a clear, comprehensive and systematic exposition of the central tenets of Jung’s work which has something to offer to both specialists and those seeking an introduction to the subject. Internationally recognised experts in Jungian Psychology cover the central themes in three sections: Theory, Psychotherapy & Applications. Each chapter begins with an introduction locating the topic in the context of Jung’s work as a whole, before moving on to an investigation of contemporary developments and concluding by demonstrating how Jung’s theories continue to evolve and develop through their practical therapeutic applications.



The Handbook of Jungian Psychology is the definitive source of authoritative information on Jungian psychology for Jungian analysts, psychotherapists, counsellors and related professionals. It will be an invaluable aid to those involved in Jungian academic studies and related disciplines.

About the Author

Renos K. Papadopoulos is professor of Analytical Psychology at the Centre for Psychoanalytic Studies of the University of Essex, a training and supervising Jungian psychoanalyst as well as consultant clinical psychologist and systemic family psychotherapist at the Tavistock Clinic.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the better books on Jung 28 Mar 2012
By L. Power TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
I have bought several books on Jung, and something about the writing style I find difficult to read and comprehend. People I have spoken to echo the same sentiment 'I know what you mean,'they nod sympathetically.

So, I don't know if you can imagine my delight when I stumbled across this in a bookstore. The more I leafed through it, the more impressed I was with the contributions by a wide variety of experts. For example, understanding clicked in on the personality types, now widely used as the MBTI, Myers Briggs Type indicator.

If you're new to Jung, I would recommend you get this book, and then explore further as you deem fit. If you're not new to Jung this brilliant book delivers a one stop reference to his great ideas.

Another book that I highly recommend is The Middle Pillar: The Balance Between Mind and Magic:. His chapter about Jung model of the mind is simply brilliant. You may be interested to know how Jung bridged the gap between spirituality and psychology with his many concepts. I particularly loved the picture of the Jungian model, which alone justifies buying the book.

I think you will love it, and I hope this was helpful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Scholarly Review of Jungian and Post-Jungian Ideas 20 Mar 2009
By V. Holmes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book should prove a valuable resource to scholars or anyone else wanting to become familiar with Jungian and Post-Jungian concepts and approaches.

The book begins with an excellent chapter on Jung's epistemology and methodology by Professor Renos Papadopoulos. This approach seems valuable because, as Papadopoulos argues, Jung's epistemology is not immediately apparent within his writing, and so, needs be teased out in order to be properly understood. In this way, the opening chapter helps to understand the concepts in later chapters more clearly. Papadopoulos provides good evidence in support of viewing Jung's epistemology as teleological and his method as constructive rather than reductive. Furthermore, he allows us to see how Jung's thinking is based a conception of the "other"; that Jung favors individuality ahead of generalization; that his understanding gravitates toward non-linear causality and finally that Jung's epistemology is in many ways compatible with modern systems thinking.

The subsequent chapters are all written by leading academics and/or well respected Jungian analysts. The book is well indexed and follows a logical flow that elucidates Jung's concepts and theories concisely. For example, the Collective Unconscious is followed by the Archetypes, Shadow, Anima/Animus, Psychological Types, The Self, Transference and Counter Transference, Individuation, Active Imagination, Dreams, Alchemy, Religion and finally, The Arts. Each chapter includes an overview of the concept or theory in question and also discusses many of the more prominent subsequent developments and critiques in each area. In other words, each chapter offers a well balanced overview of the subject matter.

Finally, the book also helps to achieve a clearer understanding of how Jung's life work stands apart from that of Sigmund Freud's. This is not done by undervaluing Freud, but instead, by laying credence to the idea that Jung was and remains in his own right, one of the most important commentators on the subject of the unconscious.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great detailed overview of Jungian Psychology 23 May 2014

This book is detailed, and gives a nice overview of Jungian Psychology, as well as theory pre and post Jung.
5.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable contribution to Jungian studies. 20 Sep 2013
By DalaiMama - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm a student of Mythology and Jungian psychology. The field of Jungian psychology can be a challenge. Few have been able to coherently provide a clear, comprehensive and systematic analysis of Jungian theory and its application today. This book is a critical component to any library.
4.0 out of 5 stars Not a beginners book 5 Aug 2013
By trina jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This was assigned reading for a class I took on Jungian Psychology. While it may be more easily understood than some of Jung's own writings, it still presupposes previous knowledge on Jung and alchemy. I felt that it was too advanced for a class that was an introduction to Jung. If you have previous experience with Jung it might be helpful to further explain some of his concepts. If however, you're new to Jung expect to read this book with a computer close at hand to look up many of the terms in the text.
