Editorial Reviews

Review

"Extraordinarily valuable.... Whether writing a disquisition on an obscure point of theology to Father Victor White or advice to an anonymous correspondent who wondered whether she should commit suicide...Jung commits himself entirely to the question and to the moment.... [The] Letters are indispensable and a beautiful production."--James Olney, The New Republic

"What [Jung] offers from the furnace of his mind is near enough to that Philosopher's Stone sought by his old friends the alchemists to hold us enchanted through unnumbered re-readings."--Robertson Davies, The New York Times Book Review

By Neal J. Pollock VINE VOICE on June 6, 2006
Format: Hardcover
This is a huge book shining light on Jung's psychology--both personal & theoretical. I added over 100 quotes from it into my collection--an incredible amount. They address a wide range of topics such as: modern art, telepathy, astrology, fear, schizophrenia, the death penalty, ethics & morality, music, evil, psychological projection, Freud, science & its limits esp. in relation to religion, neologisms (creating new words), doctors vs. scientists, rationality/consciousness vs. non-rationality/unconscious mind, the dangers of groups, ethnic differences, & the nature of analytical psychology.

Of special interest, due to the accusations against Jung of anti-semitism, are the several letters sent in his own defense. Based upon the written material herein, these criticisms appear to be unfounded. For example, he wrote: p. 148 "It is my opinion that the peculiarity of the Jews might explain why they are an absolutely essential symbiotic element in our population. If there were no differences between them and other people, there would be nothing to distinguish them at all and then there would also be nothing in the characteristic influence, amply attested by history, which they have exerted on their environment. It must after all be supposed that a people which has kept itself more or less unadulterated for several thousand years and clung onto its belief in being "chosen" is psychologically different in some way from the relatively young Germanic peoples whose culture is scarcely more than a thousand years old" & p. 154 "I am absolutely not an opponent of the Jews even though I am an opponent of Freud's...not because he is a Jew.

I am slowly expanding my Jung library. This book was a must. Now I'm after filling in the missing volumes of his Collected Works.
