Overview

In this compact volume, British psychiatrist and writer Anthony Storr has selected extracts from Jung’s writings that pinpoint his many original contributions and relate the development of his thought to his biography. Storr’s explanatory notes and introduction show the progress and coherence of Jung’s ideas. These notes link the extracts, and with Dr. Storr’s introduction, they show the progress and coherence of Jung’s ideas, including such concepts as the collective unconscious, the archetypes, introversion and extroversion, individuation, and Jung’s view of integration as the goal of the development of the personality.Jung maintained that we are profoundly ignorant of ourselves and that our most pressing task is to deflect our gaze away from the external world and toward the study of our own nature. In a world torn by conflict and threatened by annihilation, his message has an urgent relevance for every thoughtful person.

Reviews
Storr has undertaken the formidable task of selecting essential extracts from the huge outpouring of Jung, whose collected works fill 18 volumes. He starts well with a lively and succinct introduction. . . . The book is then neatly compartmentalized into the main stages of Jung's thought, with elucidatory prefaces by Dr Storr to each stage.– "Economist"
