Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0451625781, Mass Market Paperback)

The contributions of Carl Jung to understanding of the human psyche are immense. Starting as Freud's most famous disciple, Jung soon broke away from his mentor to follow his own lines of investigation and discovery. Many of Jung's ideas are now considered fundamentals in the study of the mind, but other, more controversial theories dealing with the psychological relevance of alchemy, ESP, astrology, and occultism are only now being seriously examined. This condensation and summary of Jung's life and work by two eminent psychology professors is written with deep understanding and extraordinary clarity and, along with its companion volume, A Primer Of Jungian Psychology is essential reading for anyone interested in the hidden depths of the mind.

"Carl Jung's contributions to our understanding of the human psyche have made him one of the most significant figures in the field of analytical psychology. His concepts of the collective unconscious, archetypal personality patterns, extroversion and introversion; his inquiry into the functions of thought, instinct, and feeling; his masterful investigations of the roots and meaning of dreams--all have had profound and far-reaching influence." "A Primer of Jungian Psychology offers a clear and concise presentation of Jung's life and work, and of the theories that have become fundamental to our basic understanding of behavior. Including everything from Jung's beliefs on the basic structure of the personality to his controversial ideas on the psychological relevance of occultism, astrology, alchemy, and extrasensory perception, this comprehensive volume is essential reading for anyone interested in the hidden depths of the mind.
