Product Description


"His book makes for very invigorating reading as page after page reveals a really erudite encounter between Jung and Tillich… Read this book, then, for a masterful discussion of two truly sophisticated, spiritually developed individuals." – Tony Woolfson, International Journal of Jungian Studies, Vol. 1 No. 1, March 2009

"I found the author’s synthesis of Jung and Tillich a compelling analysis of the nature of the human condition... This important book illuminates that aspect of Jung’s thought which has too often been dismissed pejoratively by uninformed critics as ‘mysticism.’"George Bright, Journal of Analytical Psychology, Vol. 55, 2010

HASH(0x994c89e4) out of 5 stars Worth the Effort 7 Nov. 2009
By Elton Hall - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
John Dourley's study of Tillich and Jung is not easy reading. It is dense, complex and detailed, comparing the understanding of the human being, human destiny, God and history in the writings of Paul Tillich the theologian and Carl Jung the psychologist. But it is rich with insight of the kind that makes for goosebumps.

Because both Tillich and Jung drew upon and appropriated the visionary work of Christian mystics, especially Meister Eckhart and Jacob Boehme, but also Joachim di Fiore and the Beguines, Dourley provides a bonus in his discussions of these figures. He shows in detail how Tillich's thought evolved from his monumental Systematic Theology to the last days of his life, how Jung progressively revealed his deepest thinking, and how they converged and yet remained apart. More than anyone else, Dourley has shown why both reached beyond the Trinity to a quaternity and why both thought doing so is imperative (and unavoidable) in the growth of humanity.

This book collects a number of essays delivered as papers in various places. Even though revised, they can be just a little repetitive, but given the wealth of complexity in both thinkers, even where issues are addressed a second time, the insights are new, the angles of view are different, and the reminders are valuable.

Anyone who wishes to deeply plum the most fundamental concerns of either Tillich or Jung will find this book rewarding. And anyone who has contemplated the future of humanity and of the individual will discover a great deal to consider.

For those of us who will probably never read, much less deeply study, the theology of Tillich or the collected works of Jung, this book is an eye-opening discovery. Dourley has done a great service that deserves to be more widely known.
