An eye-opening biography of one of the most influential psychiatrists of the modern age, drawing from his lectures, conversations, and own writings.
In the spring of 1957, when he was eighty-one years old, Carl Gustav Jung undertook the telling of his life story. Memories, Dreams, Reflections is that book, composed of conversations with his colleague and friend Aniela Jaffe, as well as chapters written in his own hand, and other materials. Jung continued to work on the final stages of the manuscript until shortly before his death on June 6, 1961, making this a uniquely comprehensive reflection on a remarkable life. Fully corrected, this edition also includes Jung's VII Sermones ad Mortuos.

-An important, firsthand document for readers who wish to understand this seminal writer and thinker.- --Booklist
The Frank revelations of the innermost life of one of the greatest explorers of the human mind. A unique document of our own and of all time.
‘Jung’s single-minded humility, his passion to unearth truth, is one of the loveliest impressions to emerge from this absorbing and many-sided book.’
‘He was on a giant scale ... he was a master physician of the soul in his insights, a profound sage in his conclusions. He is also one of Western Man’s great liberators.’
J.B. PRIESTLEY, 'Sunday Telegraph'
‘Can sometimes rise to the heights of a Blake or a Nietzsche or a Kierkegaard ... like any true prophet or artist he extended the range of the human imagination ... to be able to share Jungian emotions is surely an almost necessary capacity of the free mind.’
PHILIP TOYNBEE, ' Observer'
