Synopses & Reviews
Fifty years after his death, Carl Jung's revolutionary theories still attract and fascinate readers, as shown by the bestselling success of the recently published illuminated volume The Red Book. This critically acclaimed biography does full justice to his lasting contributions to psychology and philosophy, his tumultuous relationship with Freud, and his wide-ranging spiritual explorations. Showcasing superb artwork reflecting Jung's teachings, including works by Georges Rouault, René Magritte, and Paul Klee, as well as works by Jung himself and art from indigenous cultures and the ancient world, Claire Dunne explores the journey of a healer who honed his skills by attending to the wounds in his own soul.
A spiritual biography of one of the most important figures of the twentieth century, a man whose ideas revolutionized modern psychology. Through over 150 full color and black and white illustrations, including rare photographs and never-before-seen artwork by Jung himself, his life and work comes vividly to life. By combining Jung's voice with the impressions of his contemporaries, author Claire Dunne gives the reader a multi-dimensional view of this complex genius. A book that will deepen and expand the understanding of both novice and expert.
