5.0 out of 5 stars Synchronicity à la C. G. Jung, 14 July 2011
This review is from: Synchronicity: An Acausal Connecting Principle. (From Vol. 8. of the Collected Works of C. G. Jung) (Jung Extracts) (Paperback)
Not always satisfied with the causality of things and the underlying statistics, I am reading up on alternative explanations for relationships that are seemingly a-causal in nature, but feel to have more importance than a relationship based on chance. The concept of Synchronicity is surely an interesting one to dive into if you recognize yourself in the previous sentence.

True, there is quite some (basic) mathematics used to explain his ideas and to cement the foundation for his work. I actually like these explanations, because it paints a good picture of the times in which this concept was developed and it also shows that C G Jung is not just a theoretical scientist, but a practical one using common-day examples in his analysis.
The mathematical foundation takes about 25 pages of the 115 pages of the main book; as such it's not that you have to skip half the book if this part does not interest you personally. And honestly; the concept of chance explained by three matchboxes and white ants was an interesting one and I will surely use it as an example when explaining statistics and chance to others from now on. Very visual.
