Carl Gustav Jung was the enigmatic and controversial father of analytical psychology. This updated edition of Introducing Jung brilliantly explains the theories that underpin Jung’s work, delves into the controversies that led him to break away from Freud and describes his near psychotic breakdown, from which he emerged with radical new insights into the nature of the unconscious mind — and which were published for the first time in 2009 in The Red Book.

Step by step, Maggie Hyde demonstrates how it was entirely logical for him to explore the psychology of religion, alchemy, astrology, the I Ching and other phenomena rejected by science in his investigation of his patients’ dreams, fantasies and psychic disturbances.

Quotes

    What a relief! Instead of damnation, Jung felt this vision was an act of grace. He had been shown another side of God altogether, different to the one his father and uncles spoke of in their sermons.
    Andre Franciscohas quotedlast year
    God sits on His golden throne, high above the world – and from under the throne an enormous turd falls upon the sparkling new roof, shatters it, and breaks the walls of the cathedral asunder”
    Andre Franciscohas quotedlast year
    Decades later, Jung came across a reference to the motif of cannibalism in the symbolism of the Mass. And only then did the image of the “man-eater” make sense to him. He realized that the “dark Lord Jesus, the Jesuit and the phallus were identical”. They represented a dark creative force in nature, the investigation of which he pursued throughout his life.
