Stevens explores each phase of Jung's life, linking his personal and professional development with his theories of the life cycle, dream symbolism and the collective unconscious. In this 2nd revised edition he rebuts the well-publicised criticisms of Jung and Jungian analysis voiced in some recent publications.

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 SupplementFrom the Back Cover:
