Format: Paperback
Although Edinger never really understood current discoveries in epistemology, he treats the topic of consciousness and its origins from a superbly depth-psych perspective, spicing the book with priceless observations and commentary. I wish it had been a longer book--very enjoyable.
There is a remarkable section in which Edinger defends his thesis that the ego's individuative activities leave some sort of permanent deposit in the collective unconscious. He backs this up with several extremely interesting examples from various literary and religious sources. For me, this kind of thinking bridges the gap between Hillman's reduction of archetype to image (phenomenologists tend to be impatient with spiritual mysteries beyond word or image) and, the other extreme, the traditional Jungian Kantianism of regarding the archetype as some sort of untouchable realm of Platonic ideals. The deities NEED us, and it's regrettable that Edinger left us only these tantalizing hints of that.

What relevance does Jung have for mankind today?
This book slices through his dense writing, adds a modern perspective and "pulls it all togather" to give the "Big View" of what he was saying and how it applies to us today and to the future of Mankind
some prior knowledge of Jung required but truly inspiring

Absolutely outstanding. Simple, straightforward vision for modern humanity. Anyone who thinks Edinger "never really understood current issues in epistemology" has not read enough Edinger. No one understood Jung like this great writer. Read on and watch your world open, if you're lucky.
