Experiment in Depth brings together the findings of three men: C. G. Jung the psychologist. T. S. Eliot the poet, and A. J. Toynbee the historian. Each has explored, from his own special standpoint, the dynamic potentialities of the deep unconscious, the immense creative and destructive forces latent in the human psyche.In the present age these potentialities have been used principally in their destructive aspect, as a means of achieving absolute power. The purpose of this book is to investigate whether and how they can be used creatively. The author shows reason for believing that modern psychological techniques have an immense new field of application in the fuller and more satisfactory living of life. As he sees it, depth psychology and religion, far from being opposed to one another, are complimentary approaches to the same central reality: the potentially creative forces at work in man. What is needed at the present time is that the discoveries of depth psychology should be set upon a scientific basis and, at the same time, related positively to the age-old insights of religion. Insofar as this can be done, he suggests, the peoples of the world can find a new fellowship and the present 'time of troubles' be outlived. He does not venture to predict whether or not these possibilities will be realized. His object in writing is to show that they exist.
