Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Swiss-born Carl Gustav Jung (1875and#150;1961) was one of the pioneers of psychology, largely responsible for the introduction of now-familiar psychological terms such as and#147;introvert,and#8221; and#147;extrovert,and#8221; and and#147;collective unconscious.and#8221; But in spite of this, Jung has often remained on the fringes of academic discourse. Seeking to understand Jung in view of not only his life, but also in light of his extensive reading and prolific writing, this new biography reclaims Jung as a major European thinker whose true significance has not been fully appreciated.

and#160;

Paul Bishop follows Jung from his early childhood to his years at the University of Basel and his close relationshipand#151;and eventual breakand#151;with Sigmund Freud. Exploring Jungand#8217;s ideas, Bishop takes up the psychiatristand#8217;s suggestion that and#147;the tragedies of Goetheand#8217;sand#160;Faustand#160;and Nietzscheand#8217;sand#160;Thus Spoke Zarathustraand#160;. . . mark the first glimmerings of a breakthrough of total experience in our Western hemisphere,and#8221; engaging with Jungand#8217;s scholarship to offer one of the fullest appreciations yet of his distinctive approach to culture. Bishop also considers the role that theand#160;Red Book, written between 1914 and 1930 but not published until 2009, played in the progression of Jungand#8217;s thought, allowing Bishop to provide a new assessment of this divisive personality. Jungand#8217;s attempt to synthesize the different parts of human life, Bishop argues, marks the man as one of the most important theorists of the twentieth century.

and#160;

Providing a compelling examination of the life of this highly influential figure, the concise and accessibleand#160;Carl Jungand#160;will find a place on the shelves of students, scholars, and both clinical and amateur psychologists alike.

Synopsis:

Anthony Stevens explains the basic concepts of Jungian psychology: the collective unconscious, complex, archetype, shadow, persona, anima, animus, and the individuation of the "Self". He also examines Jung's views on such disparate subjects as religion, and the psychology of gender differences.

Synopsis:

Carl Gustav Jung (1875and#150;1961), as well as being one of the pioneers of psychology, is one of the most controversial of thinkers: in spite of being largely responsible for the introduction of now-familiar psychological terms such as and#147;extrovertand#8221; or and#147;introvertand#8221;, Jung has often been sidelined, remaining on the fringes of academic discourse. In this new account Paul Bishop reclaims Jung as a major European thinker whose true significance, even now, is not fully appreciated.

Taking into account the role of Jungand#8217;s recently published Red Book in the progression of his thought, Carl Jung re-assesses this divisive personality, reading Jung in terms not only of his biography, but also in light of his extensive reading and output. Jung once remarked that and#147;the tragedies of Goetheand#8217;s Faust and Nietzscheand#8217;s Thus Spoke Zarathustra [. . .] mark the first glimmerings of a breakthrough of total experience in our Western hemisphere.and#8221; In this critical biography Bishop takes up this suggestion and engages with Jungand#8217;s scholarship in order to offer one of the fullest appreciations yet of his distinctive approach to culture. He finds in Jungand#8217;s attempt to synthesize all the different parts of human life an enterprise that marks him out as one of the most important theorists of the twentieth century.

Synopsis:

This is the most lucid and timely introduction to the thought of Carl Gustav Jung available to date. Though he was a prolific writer and an original thinker of vast erudition, Jung lacked a gift for clear exposition, and his ideas are less widely appreciated than they deserve to be. Now, in this extremely accessible introduction, Anthony Stevens--one of Britain's foremost Jungian analysts--clearly explains the basic concepts of Jungian psychology: the collective unconscious, complex, archetype, shadow, persona, anima, animus, and the individualization of the Self. A small masterpiece of insight and concision, this volume offers a clear portrait of one of the twentieth century's most important and controversial thinkers.

About the Series: Combining authority with wit, accessibility, and style, Very Short Introductions offer an introduction to some of life's most interesting topics. Written by experts for the newcomer, they demonstrate the finest contemporary thinking about the central problems and issues in hundreds of key topics, from philosophy to Freud, quantum theory to Islam.

About the Author

Anthony Stevens is also the author of Archetype: A Natural History of the Self (1982), On Jung (1990), and, most recently, The Two Million-Year-Old Self (1993).
