Editorial Reviews

Review

"Nietzsche is perhaps the first Western man to have experienced a psychological encounter with the Self. . . . [This] seminar on Nietzsche's Zarathustra . . . [ is a] magisterial enterprise [that] demonstrates to any perceptive reader Jung's millennial magnitude."--Psychological Perspectives

From the Back Cover

"A critical event in the history of the human spirit.... C. G. Jung throws new light on Nietzsche's psyche as well as on the condition of the German collective psyche during those fateful years of 1934 to 1939."--James Kirsch

More About the Author

Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) was a Swiss psychiatrist, an influential thinker and the founder of analytical psychology (also known as Jungian psychology). Jung's radical approach to psychology has been influential in the field of depth psychology and in counter-cultural movements across the globe. Jung is considered as the first modern psychologist to state that the human psyche is "by nature religious" and to explore it in depth. His many major works include "Analytic Psychology: Its Theory and Practice," "Man and His Symbols," "Memories, Dreams, Reflections," "The Collected Works of Carl G. Jung," and "The Red Book."

Format: Paperback
Wonderful analysis, completely devoid of logical gaps or special requests from the reader: everything said, every assertation, is capable of hitting home and clarifying what was before a quirky throw-back of Nietzsche's. And *interesting* to boot -- this book is no long-winded scrutiny of Zarathustra, but rather the transcription of a private group analysis led by Jung, so it never loses itself in the lofty kingdoms of thought that are the bane of so much criticism.
There's a definite sense of total respect for Nietzsche from Jung . . . almost as though Jung himself (one of the more exceptional intellects of our species) was struggling with the great, monstrous geist of Nietzsche for understanding. Which is a nice touch, having so often seen the man debunked as a megalomaniac, or, worse, a run-of-the-mill madman. This book is a must have for any Nietzsche scholar (no matter what the age or education) and, I imagine, quite useful in understanding Jung as well.

Two great minds meet - or clash perhaps? Jung offers an incisive, discerning, lucid understanding of the writings of the great philosopher. To anyone who has been baffled by Thus Spoke Zarathustra, Jung elucidates many obscure points. Requires basic understanding of Jungian psychology, though.

Reading Nietzsche can be quite euphoric (it's the deepest stuff I've ever read.) But Jung offers a balanced view - and disentangles Nietzsche's psychology, or which he himself was apparently unaware.

Jung was fascinated by Nietzsche, and then distanced himself from him, fearing Nietzsche's ultimate downfall, a 10 year spell of insanity.

Very satisfying read.

Format: Paperback
why in the world would Bollingen add this ABRIDGED version in its Jung Series is anyones guess...perhaps for those ona budget that can not afford the $200 complete 2 Vol set? Still its not in anyones interest, to those who are serious in Jung's studies.
This book is 350 pages, all chopped out f a 1500 page complete 2 vol seminar.
thus one ends up losing track of Jung's ideas , you will never come to grasp Nietzsche's intentions on his most difficult and enigmatical work, Zarathustra.
AVOID BUYING THIS BOOK.
Save you $'s and buy the 2 vol set
Read my comments on the Complete Seminar set.

0 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Jack Wonder on January 11, 2015
Format: Paperback
Although in awe of Nietzsche, Jung was also scared that one day he would go mad like him. And he did! Following his separation with Freud in 1913 – over Freud’s ridiculous idea of infantile sexuality – Jung went through a phase of intermittent psychosis (read the chapter ‘Confrontation with the Unconscious’ in his MDR). This put him in no position to be a FAIR critic of Nietzsche, and these seminars are witness to that deficiency. Jung obliterated all compassion for Nietzsche as he was desperate to distance himself from the philosopher. Well, just as Nietzsche said: “the smallest gap is the most difficult to bridge...”
There are, however, some important insights in this book, hence my 3 stars.
