"The backgrounds of the essayists are diverse, as are their views regarding Carl Jung and his work...Young-Eisendrath's essay on Jung and Buddhism is invaluable, as is Dawson's on literary criticism. Summing up: Recommended."
- J. Bailey, Choice
This second edition represents a wide-ranging critical introduction to the psychology of Carl Jung, one of the founders of psychoanalysis. Including two new essays and thorough revisions of most of the original chapters, it constitutes a radical assessment of his legacy.

Calvin: I used to hate writing assignments, but now I enjoy them.
Calvin: I realized that the purpose of writing is to inflate weak ideas, obscure poor reasoning, and inhibit clarity.
Calvin: With a little practice, writing can be an intimidating and impenetrable fog! Want to see my book report?
Hobbes: "The dynamics of interbeing and monological imperatives in Dick and Jane: A study in psychic transrelational gender modes."
Calvin: Academia, here I come!
Most of the essays in this book were filled with psycho-babble so bad I found myself laughing in unbelief and thinking of the above Calvin and Hobbes comic.
There were a few good essays in the book:
"New developments in the post-Jungian field" by Andrew Samuels
The three case studies using different Jungian approaches were good.
"Me and my anima" by Elio Frattaroli was amusing.
"Jung and religion: the opposing self" by Ann Belford Ulanov was excellent.
I found myself doubting my entire interest in Jung near the end of this book. The last essay, Ulanov's article on Jung and religion, was so good, however, that I decided to continue my study of Jung.
This is definitely a book you should borrow from the library. Don't waste your time buying it.
