Once you are connected with the inside you are able to disentangle from the prejudices and the general morals views of the epoch, and you are able to fight for your responsibility in a certain dilemma which concerns yourself now and then. You could not escape from that deep ethic. C.G. Jung has a very important preface which I kindly recommend to every and each reader.

The most important concept to come out of this book is the idea of feeding the shadow. This means we must give the devil his due from time to time. Did you know that the talisman is a minor form of evil intended to protect us from a worse evil? You will know all about this if you read Erich Neumann. There is no sense in trying to be good all of the time - it will just blow up in your face eventually. This is why we must learn to channel or canlize the libido in the proper manner - so that it does no real harm to ourselves or anyone else. Neumann is brilliant when it comes to teaching men how to feed their shadow - and divest ourselves of fear of the feminine - to prevent an unintended eruption of the shadow side of the unconscious. After all, the evil we can control is much less evil than the evil that is out of control. This is a great book for any man who wishes to take back control of sin and canlize the libido into a productive endeavor.

Excellent choice, because it states that is the desaire to become a new human kind that will take us to a new ethics, just by trying to do the best person we can be. Great seller, great book.

Erich Neumann was one of the original students of Freud, along with Jung. I have been drawn to Neumann over the years as it seemed to me that he was genius enough to begin moving towards his very good friend Jung's ideas as time has passed. Apparently they developed a close friendship and carried on many long discussions together. The name "Depth Psychology" I believe is the name Jung gave to his unique approach to Analytical Psychology (another name for Jung's work). This means that Jung's work was carried on by someone who could fully appreciate it and present it to the public. Other works of Neumann are also quite deep and unique in their own right.

I need to sentences again and again in this powerful book. Personalizes good/evil where they need to belong. Ownership means a greater awareness. Love this author.

....no modern discussion of morality or ethics would be relevant without the insights of such a book. How can we strive to be ethical individuals without such a thorough understanding of what our shadow side means to our efforts?
