Man and His Symbols by Carl Gustav Jung
Man and His Symbols

R A shaw, December 27, 2013

I used this book as introductory reading in a class entitled The Psychology of Art which I taught at the Wheeler School in Providence RI.

It is also useful in understanding much of human mythology and tradition.
