Since the 1990s, many efforts have been made to integrate Buddhism and its therapeutic ancestors in the West, particularly Jungian psychology. Taking Japanese Zen-Buddhism as its starting point, Awakening and Insight is a collection of critiques and histories of Buddhism. It is based on accounts of the Buddhism and Depth Psychology conference that took place in Kyoto in 1999, expanded by additional papers and commentary, and includes: New perspectives on Buddhism and Psychology, East and West; Cautions and Insights about Potential Confusions; Traditional Ideas in a New Light; It also features a new translation of the conversation between Schinichi Hisamatsu and Carl Jung which took place in 1958. Awakening and Insight will be of great interest to students, scholars and practitioners of Analytical Psychology and Psychotherapy, as well as anyone interested in Buddhism.
