2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By L. Power TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 28 Mar. 2012
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.

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.

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.
Invaluable contribution to Jungian studies. 20 Sept. 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.
