This anthology of contemporary classics in Analytical Psychology bring together academic, scholarly and clinical writings by contributors who constitute the 'Post-Jungian' generation.

Carpani brings together important contributions from the Jungian world to establish the 'new ancestors' in this field, in order to serve future generations of Jungian analysts, scholars, historians and students. This generation of clinicians and scholars has shaped the contemporary Jungian landscape and their work continues to inspire discussions on key topics including archetypes, race, gender, trauma and complexes. Each contributor has selected a piece of their work which they feel best represents their research and clinical interests, each aiding the expansion of current discussions on Jung and contemporary analytical psychology studies.

Spanning two volumes, which are also accessible as standalone books, this essential collection will be of interest to Jungian analysts and therapists, as well as academics and students of Jungian and post-Jungian studies.

Reviews and Endorsements

Stefano Carpani has assembled an incredible number of world-famous "Post-Jungians" in this two-volume anthology, presenting central and relevant articles on Contemporary Clinical and Theoretical classics in Analytical Psychology. The New Ancestors will no doubt become a highly esteemed and used classic anthology for the Jungian Community and will most likely be found in the libraries of most Jungian Institutes and Societies as well as on the shelves of scholars and practitioners. - Misser Berg, Jungian Analyst, Denmark, President-Elect of the IAAP.

In acknowledging Jungian voices from which we are all descended, Stefano Carpani has put together this marvelous two-volume anthology on theoretical, clinical, and applied depth psychology that will be essential reading for generations of neo-Jungians to come. From orthodox, post-classical, and contemporary perspectives, these seminal analysts and academics offer a rich compendium of novel ideas that are harbingers for the future of analytical psychology. - Jon Mills, Faculty, Postgraduate Programs in Psychoanalysis & Psychotherapy, Adelphi University.

The Oxford Dictionary defines evolution as the appearance or presentation of events in due succession. This innovative book project sets for itself the rather challenging goal of exploring the evolution of analytical psychology from its roots and foundations in the formulations of the founding figures of C.G. Jung, Marie-Louise von Franz, Jolanda Jacobi etc., to the following generation of post-Jungians (till the mid 1980's), in order to reflect on the future direction and evolution of these notions and concepts from the perspective of contemporary neo-Jungians (recent graduates of analytic training programs). Rather than perpetuating conceptual splits from different schools of analytic thought, this younger generation of analytical psychologists or neo-Jungians favors trans-disciplinarian inclusiveness and recognizes the value, indeed the necessity, of integrating ideas and concepts from different psychoanalytical schools of thought and perspectives with regard to the very nature of the analytic relationship, and to the transference and counter-transference as an interactive field in order to broaden and deepen our understanding of psyche and psychic process. This expanded perspective also includes the body as a channel for expression of psyche and makes allowance for the exploration of evolving notions of sexuality and sexual identity. This perspective includes the psychosocial level as well and gives credence to and recognition of the very real impact of socio-economic conditions on psychological development.

The goal of this novel and innovative undertaking is to explore what the current notions and ideas of the authors in this anthology might portent for the evolution and future development in our understanding of the mysteries of psyche and of the individuation process. Each author is a recognized authority in their field of interest and together they represent perspectives from different training orientations and different cultures, including Europe, North America, South America and South Africa.

This anthology would be of great interest to analytical psychologists as well as to the candidates in analytical training programs around the world. In addition, I strongly believe that the inquisitive openness to and novel exploration of the notions presented will also appeal to and help build bridges to psychoanalysts and psychotherapists from different schools of thought and orientation as well as to academics interested in further exploring the underlying notions, concepts and theory. I also believe the articles in this anthology will respond to the curiosity of a large lay audience that has a profound and devoted interest in Jung and in the mysterious and often convoluted process of individuation.

In light of the fact that this anthology seeks to broaden our perspective and to explore avenues for the future development of our understanding of psychological development and of the mystery of the individuation process, it seems very likely that it would rapidly become an essential resource for further discussion among future generations of analysts and therapists of every orientation as well as of academics and students. - Tom Kelly, Past President, IAAP.
