9780041500417: Striving Towards Wholeness

Barbara Hannah studies the psychic processes that move people to strive for wholeness of personality, an integration of all innate capacities. Since this inner drama manifests itself with special intensity in the lives of creative individuals, she has taken up the biographies and literary productions of five major English novelists—Robert Louis Stevenson, Mary Webb, and Charlotte, Emily, and Anne Bronte—along with one nonliterary artist—Branwell Bronte.

Not only do Stevenson, Webb, and the four Brontes take on fresh, unsuspected dimensions, but the concepts of analytical psychology are also broadened and deepened as Barbara Hannah indicates how contemporary people may gain insight from these examples in their own efforts to strive towards wholeness.

Barbara Hannah (1891–1986) was born in England. She went to Zürich in 1929 to study with Carl Jung and lived in Switzerland the rest of her life. A close associate of Jung until his death, she was a practicing psychotherapist and lecturer at the C.G. Jung Institute. Her books available from Chiron include The Archetypal Symbolism of Animals; Encounters with the Soul; Jung, His Life and Work: A Biographical Memoir; and Striving Toward Wholeness.

Book Description London, George Allen & Unwind., 1972. First British Edition. 14,5 x 22,5 cm. X, 316 pages. Original Hardcover in original dustjacket (the dustjcaket in special Brodart-Cover). Very good condition with minor signs of external wear. Barbara Hannah (2 August 1891 September 1986) was born in England. She is most well known for her association with Carl Gustav Jung whom she joined in 1929 in Zurich and remained so until her death. Hannah was close friends with Swiss Jungian psychologist Marie-Louise von Franz, to whom she was introduced by Jung. He encouraged the younger von Franz to live with her, stating that "the real reason you should live together is that your chief interest will be analysis and analysts should not live alone." They became lifelong friends. She wrote a biography of Jung entitled Jung, His Life and Work: A Biographical Memoir. She also practised as psychotherapist and served as lecturer at the C.G. Jung Institute. (Wikipedia). Bookseller Inventory # 3263BB
