Review:

In On Jung, Anthony Stevens offers an informative and clear explanation of the basic principles of Jungian psychology.... Stevens skillfully employs object relations theory in his analysis.... His treatment of the history of Jung's family and the impact of its dynamics on Jung's personality is refreshingly honest." --John-Raphael Staude, The Times Literary Supplement

From the Back Cover:


"From the beginning of this book, the reader is aware of being in the presence of a seasoned and highly knowledgeable scholar and practitioner.... The writing is clear and graceful.... This work is distinctive, original in its organization, and pleasing to read."--James Jarrett, University of California, Berkeley


"Many potential readers of Jung feel intimidated by Jung's style and the sheer bulk of his collected works. They could do no better than to turn to Anthony Stevens for enlightenment. He is an exceptionally clear expositor of Jung's thought."--Anthony Storr


"This is the work of an extremely smart, careful, and widely read scholar; it is also well-written and imaginative."--Wendy Brown, University of California, Santa Cruz
