This book is a collection of essays that were published at different times in different journals. The first essay (which takes up about 40% of the book), covers the inferior function. It is a great help to those who are trying to determine their own type and perhaps the types of loved ones. This is important, because understanding types can help you become aware of and anticipate your own and others weaknesses, and deal with them in a constructive manner. Other essays cover active imagination, the nature of transference, projection, group psychology and analysis as a profession. Each essay contains rare insights, refreshing points of view, analyzed dreams and a healthy dose of von Franz's distinctive personality. This book helped me pull together a lot of ideas that were expounded in other books with a narrower focus. Like her other books, it is most rewarding to those who take the time to reflect on what is being said. Together with Edward F. Edinger, von Franz will continue to allow a broader audience to appreciate Jung's genius. Recommended.
An excellent companion to this essay would be her book 'Shadow and Evil In Fairy Tales'. Re-reading these books throughout my life I think what I've experienced is this: von Franz and other remarkable analysts work with patients who have issues that represent extreme examples of human experience, disturbed as it may be. The analyst's view emerges in their books and lectures. As we live, we have new experiences--not all 'good' by any means--and these provide new personal touchstones which enable us to recognize elements of human psychology that we hadn't seen before. When I re-read a good book like these after ten more years of living, it's even better and more apt than the last time I read it.
INDIVIDUATION & DREAMS (definitions, examples, value of):
p. 6: Every time a dream interpretation hits the mark, a piece of the unconscious is joined with consciousness, or else an autonomous complex is joined with the rest of the personality. In this way a continuously repeating process of coniunctio takes place.
THE INFERIOR FUNCTION & JUNGIAN TYPOLOGY (for understanding others & in individuation):
p. 16=Intro., 62=ES, 71=IS, 78-ET, 85=IT, 91=EN, 99=IN, 106=EF, 114=IF, 117=& Unconscious, 132=& Archetypes [E=extrovert, I=introvert, S=sensate, N=intuitive, F=feeling, and T=thinking]
p. 28: When the time comes for the development of the other functions, there are generally several phenomena: the superior function degenerates like an old car which begins to run down and get worn out, the ego becomes bored with the superior function, because everything you can do well becomes boring, and beyond that the inferior function, instead of appearing in its own field, tends to invade the main function, giving it an unadapted neurotic twist.
p. 33: If people have already reached the stage of being bored with their main function, they very often assure you with absolute certainty that they belong to the type opposite what they really are. The extravert swears that he is deeply introverted, and vice versa.
