Description

This ia an account of the origins, influences and legacy of Jungian psychology. By delineating the social, personal, religious and cultural contexts of Jung's system of psychology, the author identifies the central role of depth psychology in the culture of modernity. The foreword links the core of Jungian psychology to contemporary works it has shaped - such as those of M. Scott Peck and Clarissa Pinkola Estes - that proclaim the power of Jungian concepts and theories to heal the alienated and isolated self.
