Here are some representative quotations from the book:
"Theories in psychology are the very devil. It is true that we need certain points of view for their orienting and heuristic velue; but they should always be regarded as mere auxiliary concepts that can be laid aside at any time." (Pg. 7)
"Freud's particular merit lies not in the actual discovery of unconscious activity, but in unveiling the real nature of this activity, and above all in working out a practical method for exploring the unconscious." (Pg. 67)
"Before Freud nothing was allowed to be sexual, now everything is nothing but sexual." (Pg. 84)
"(I)n America civic life appeals to the intelligence and expects an intelligent response, whereas in Europe it plans for stupidity." (Pg. 135)
"The Church represents a higher spiritual substitute for the purely natural, or 'carnal,' tie to the parents. Consequently it frees the individual from an unconscious natural relationship which, strictly speaking, is not a relationship at all but simply a condition of inchoate, unconscious identity." (Pg. 158)
"Moreover, there are dreams that defy every effort at interpretation. Often the only possible thing is to hazard a guess." (Pg. 163)
If you're interested in education and jungian psychology and is not particularly knowledgeable of both, then this is highly recommended. Straightforward and not too scholarly or dense.
