Jung in Contexts: A Reader


Jung in Contexts is a unique collection of the most important essays on Carl Jung and analytical psychology over the past two decades. Paul Bishop's comprehensive introduction traces the growth and development of analytical psychology and its institutions. The essays which follow place Jung's life and work in three important contexts: historical, literary and intellectual.

Contributors explore diverse issues such as Jung's attitude towards National Socialism and his reading of E.T.A. Hoffman. His work is also viewed in terms of the traditions of German and French thought which influenced him. This compilation is an indispensable introduction for all those interested in Jung.
