9780006530657: The Essential Jung: Selected Writings

A sparkling and up-to-date new cover for one of Fontana Press’s strongest-selling titles.

‘Jung 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. Priestly, Sunday Telegraph

‘Jung 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

This compact volume of extracts from the twenty volumes of Jung’s published writings presents him clearly, in his own words and in precis.

Jung’s writing is the key to understanding 20th-century psychology, psychiatry and psychoanalysis. Most of the terms of reference now used (‘extrovert’, ‘collective unconscious’, ‘archetype’) are Jungian.

This is essential reading for both students of psychology and the general reader.

Review:

‘Storr presents a selection characterised by clarity of organisation and sympathetic understanding which will be of value both to the general reader and the more serious student.’ Journal of Analytical Psychology

‘Anthony Storr offers a commentary that is admirably clear and unfailingly level in tone.’ Liam Hudson, Sunday Times

From the Back Cover:

C.G.Jung considered that man's most urgent task is to deflect his gaze from the conquest of the external world toward the study of his own nature. He was the first to apply psychoanalytic ideas to the study of insanity; he introduced into psychology the terms 'complex', 'collective unconscious', 'extravert', 'archetype' and 'individuation' and anticipated the existentialists in affirming that people are compelled to search for meaning in life. This compact volume of key extracts from the formidable mass of Jung's published writings presents the essentials of Jung's thought in his own words. Anthony Storr's prefatory notes to each extract show the development of Jung's ideas and demonstrate their originality and continuing value. It is an indispensable book for anyone seeking to understand the extraordinary range of Jung's thought.

'Jung was on a giant scale… He was 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'

'Jung 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'

'A most competent and reliable work. I am deeply impressed by the wide knowledge of Jung's books… The work Anthony Storr has put into it is amazing – I could not have done it!'
GERHARD ADLER, editor of 'C.C. Jung: Letters' and joint editor of 'The Collected Works of C.G. Jung'

'Store presents a selection characterised by clarity of organisation and sympathetic understanding which will be of value both to the general reader and to the more serious student.'
JOURNAL OF ANALYTICAL PSYCHOLOGY

'[Anthony Storr] offers a commentary that is admirably clear and unfailingly level in its tone.'
LIAM HUDSON, 'Sunday Times'
