Format: Hardcover
From the beginning of the 20th century Jung championed a secular psychology that also viewed the human as essentially sacred and irreducible and by so doing set himself apart from and against the strictly positivistic science that the western world espoused at and since that time. Jung's ideas, far from succumbing to collective bias and oblivion, have disseminated themselves substantively throughout the entire world for the last 100 years in the form of the many psychologists, psychiatrists, therapists, and professional and lay groups who presently identify themselves with Jung's ideas. Kirsch's book is a history of exactly how and through whom that dissemination has occurred and in whom and in what organizations it resides. Although Kirsch says his is a social and political history and not an intellectual one, that is not entirely correct, for, as he tracks people over time and about the world, he differentiates what aspect of Jung's spirit each tends most to embody (and defend): the philosophical, the clinical, the religious, the archetypal, the developmental. And in this weaving arise the confrontations, conflicts, and confluences that finally shape the ongoing state and living drama of Jungian psychology. No one other than Kirsch could have written this book. His life, like none other, has been part and parcel of the events and people he describes (see the Preface). Far from having become a passive cipher in the play, he has had a hand in its evolution and yet, in his story, he steps outside of the fray to portray its horizons.Read more ›

Format: Hardcover
The Jungians sets out to describe the social and political history of the Jungian communities throughout the world and accomplishes its aims admirably. It will be the gold standard for historical inquiry into the Jungian movement for decades to come with an informative discussion of the development of every institute and of the contributions of each significant figure in nalytic psychology.

You will enjoy reading this book!
For the first time there is a telling of the tale of the Jungian movement from the
beginnings in Switzerland to every continent through places, persons, events and
publications. This book will leave you with a new and larger understanding of a
story that was previouly known mostly in fragments. Included are colorful nuances
and first hand accounts, even a few never before published photographs, from the
author who grew up in the midst of the Jungians and has been one of its most
prominent contributors.
Whether you read this book for the fun and enjoyment of it or for professional
research, you will find a wealth of facts, insights and useful references to places
and persons you probably know and books you probably have read, and you may find
yourself referring back to specific sections, places and persons many times.
I recommend this book highly!

Format: Paperback
Steven B. Herrmann, PhD, MFT
Author of "Walt Whitman: Shamanism, Spiritual Democracy, and the World Soul"

In The Jungians: A Comparative and Historical Perspective Jungian analyst Thomas Kirsch brings to light some important facts about Jung and clears up some controversial subjects. He tells herein the history of the movement of analytical psychology and its growth throughout the post-modern world. Published in the year 2000 this is the most comprehensive book on the field of analytical psychology available and one of the best resource books to provide readers with a clear picture of the origins of the Jungian Institutes and Analytical Psychology Clubs in Zurich and the United Kingdom, the United States and Canada, Europe, Israel, Latin America, Australia and New Zealand, Eastern Europe and Russia, and emerging groups in Asia. This is a great book and it reads like a good story because it is a book which spans Kirsch's lifetime and in a sense, as he says in his Preface, he became a part of it without his knowing it. There are so many pieces of information that I found enlightening but one of the most interesting is that the first public lecture Jung gave that cast the seeds of dissention with Sigmund Freud occurred in America (60). The book contains a chapter on the IAAP and a valuable chapter on the history of Sandplay. He speaks clearly about highly charged issues, such as the splits that have occurred in the various Institutes and the tensions between the symbolic and developmental schools of analysis. He handles the controversial issue of Jung's alleged anti-Semitism with critical acumen and in a very fair and unbiased way. In his final Observations and Conclusions chapter, Kirsch agrees with C. G. Jung and former analysts Adolph Guggenbühl-Criag, Dr. Joseph L.
