Product description

Review

"This is by far the best introduction to the work and thought of Carl Gustav Jung now available [1983]. I wish it were possible to require that every teacher and critic, cleric and cocktail-party magus who takes the name of Jung upon his tongue should have read Anthony Storr's admirable compilation at least once, for untold misunderstanding and unwarranted assumption would be saved thereby.... Once again, thanks and praise to Anthony Storr, clinical lecturer in psychiatry in the University of Oxford, for a masterly achievement."--Robertson Davies, The Globe and Mail (Toronto)


"This is the best introductory book for the serious reader. Add it to the autobiography and The Freud/Jung Letters and one has the beginning of a lifetime's serious entertainment."--J. D. O'Hara, Virginia Quarterly Review



"A lively and succinct introduction."--The Economist



"A commentary that is admirably clear and unfailingly level in its tone."--The Sunday Times



"Dr. Anthony Storr has undertaken the formidable task of selecting essential extracts from the huge outpouring of Jung. . . . He starts well with a lively and succinct introduction. . . . The book is then neatly compartmentalized into the main stages of Jung's thought."--The Economist

From the Back Cover

C.G.Jung considered that man's most urgent task is to deflect his gaze from the conquest of the external world toward the study of his own nature. He was the first to apply psychoanalytic ideas to the study of insanity; he introduced into psychology the terms 'complex', 'collective unconscious', 'extravert', 'archetype' and 'individuation' and anticipated the existentialists in affirming that people are compelled to search for meaning in life. This compact volume of key extracts from the formidable mass of Jung's published writings presents the essentials of Jung's thought in his own words. Anthony Storr's prefatory notes to each extract show the development of Jung's ideas and demonstrate their originality and continuing value. It is an indispensable book for anyone seeking to understand the extraordinary range of Jung's thought.

'Jung was on a giant scale… He was master physician of the soul in his insights, a profound sage in his conclusions. He is also one of Western Man's great liberators.'
J.B. PRIESTLEY, 'Sunday Telegraph'

'Jung can sometimes rise to the heights of a Blake or a Nietzsche or a Kierkegaard… Like any true prophet or artist, he extended the range of the human imagination… To be able to share Jungian emotions is surely an almost necessary capacity of the free mind.'
PHILIP TOYNBEE, 'Observer'

'A most competent and reliable work. I am deeply impressed by the wide knowledge of Jung's books… The work Anthony Storr has put into it is amazing – I could not have done it!'
GERHARD ADLER, editor of 'C.C. Jung: Letters' and joint editor of 'The Collected Works of C.G. Jung'

'Store presents a selection characterised by clarity of organisation and sympathetic understanding which will be of value both to the general reader and to the more serious student.'
JOURNAL OF ANALYTICAL PSYCHOLOGY

'[Anthony Storr] offers a commentary that is admirably clear and unfailingly level in its tone.'
LIAM HUDSON, 'Sunday Times'
