An enlightening and insightful guide to the life and work of one of the founding fathers of psychotherapy and most influential thinkers in modern times.Particularly for the reader new to Jungian thinking, this book places the central concepts fully into context and provides the ideal starting point for further study of Jung and his work.

Reviews and Endorsements

Combining insights from his early life and his wide-ranging intellectual interests in philosophy, mysticism and parapsychology, Ann Casement traces the development of Jung's ideas on the functioning of the human mind, including the origins of core Jungian concepts such as archetypes, teleology, alchemy and the collective unconscious. Examining the relationship between Freud and Jung through their prolific correspondence, the author charts the growing divergence of opinion, which culminated in the birth of analytical psychology, the branch of psychotherapy established by Jung.

Notwithstanding his unquestionable contribution to modern intellectual thought, Jung has been subject to severe criticism, including allegations of anti-Semitism and sympathy with the Nazi party. The book sets out clearly both the arguments leveled against Jung and responses to his critics.

Particularly for the reader new to Jungian thinking, this book places the central concepts fully into context and provides the ideal starting point for further study of Jung and his work.

'Clearly written and well-informed, this impressive book is likely to become the single volume of choice for those psychotherapists and counselors engaging with Jung and Jungian psychology as part of their trainings (whether wholly Jungian or more pluralistic). Casement writes as an informed and enthusiastic insider who has also managed to retain her critical distance - hence what she has to say will also be relevant to more experienced readers'
- Andrew Samuels, University of Essex
