    (EPUB) [Jung Author Anthony Stevens] Does not succeed in representing Jung’s notoriously disorganized work in a coherent fashion Instead this VSI is content with being a maximally shortened summary of Jung’s autobiography Memories Dreams Reflections The later chapters dedicated to the character types are cursory and to be honest wikipedia does a better job Read Jung's Map of the Soul by Murray Stein instead for a better concise introduction

Anthony Stevens Ì 2 Summary Read Ý PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ì Anthony Stevens Read & download Jung Author Anthony Stevens About the Series Combining authority with wit accessibility and style Very Short Introductions offer an introduction to some of life's most interesting topics Written by experts for the newcomer they demonstrate the finest contemporary thinking about the central problems and issues in hundreds of key topics from philosophy to Freud uantum theory to Isla. My life is the story of the self realization of the unconscious The first sentence of CG Jung s autobiography uoted by A StevensAbout a month ago I allowed myself to make fun of the inanities produced by a certain Dr Freud who projected his own sexual complexes and hang ups onto the entire mankind and even worse womankind So I searched for a text about psychology that I could read without bewilderment at the vagaries of a supposedly scientific mind Jung 1994 by Anthony Stevens has been a perfect antidote for the Freud induced malaise Similarly to Storr s Freud it is a concise about 130 pages account of Carl Gustav Jung s life and his contributions to psychological sciencesWe read about Jung s solitary childhood and youth his medical studies and his decision to become a psychiatrist Several years of close friendship with Freud 19 years Jung s senior end when Jung rejects Freud s assumptions of predominantly sexual origins of human motivation and the entirely personal nature of human unconscious mind The concept of collective unconscious is Jung s most important contribution to psychology Jung held it to be the business of the psychologist to investigate the collective unconscious and the functional units of which it is composed the archetypes Archetypes are identical psychic structures common to all which together constitute the archaic heritage of humanity These archetypes might be thought of as patterns of behavior common for all people They exhibit a fundamental duality they are both psychic structures and neurological structures The author emphasizes that many other disciplines have produced similar concepts for example Levi Strauss s infrastructures in anthropology or Chomsky s deep structures in linguistics Jacues Monod the famous molecular biologist stated a very similar conclusion Everything comes from experience yet not from actual experience reiterated by each individual with each generation but instead from experience accumulated by the entire ancestry of the species in the course of its evolution I find the chapter on archetypes by far the most interesting It is also very well written to the extent that such an ignoramus in the field as this reviewer seems to have understood it I am very curious now how the concept of archetypes relates to the most recent knowledge in the field of genetics In the chapter The stages of life we read about the Self the psychic nucleus of a person and other components that play a role in psychic and social development of all of us the ego persona shadow anima and animus The next chapter Psychological types presents Jung s psychological typology He distinguishes four main functions sensation thinking feeling and intuition and two attitudes extraverted and introverted This produces eight psychological types and the book presents them in detail To me it all borders on pop psychology particularly the examples of professions typically chosen by people of specific type The author also seems to reserve full support for the typologyThe next chapter Dreams will certainly interest many readers it is wasted on me as I have not been able to remember any dream in 20 years or so Continuing on a personal note I found the following statement in one of the previous chapters optimistic and uplifting For Jung ageing was not a process of inexorable decline but a time for the progressive refinement of what is essential Yay I have just realized how refined I must be In the chapter on Jung s methods of therapy the author clearly states that the school of analysis that is carried in Jung s name is his chief legacy to our culture We read how Jung s analytical method of therapy was based on an interaction of two euals two real persons the therapist and the patient The author praises the open minded humanity of Jung s approach and emphasizes that he remained undogmatic to the end Jung is a concise yet good introduction to the life and work of Carl Gustav Jung I am now interested in reading about Jung s psychologyThree and three uarter stars

Anthony Stevens Ì 2 Summary Read Ý PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ì Anthony Stevens Read & download Jung Author Anthony Stevens This is the most lucid and timely introduction to the thought of Carl Gustav Jung available to date Though he was a prolific writer and an original thinker of vast erudition Jung lacked a gift for clear exposition and his ideas are less widely appreciated than they deserve to be Now in this extremely accessible introduction Anthony Stevens one of Britai. I have enjoyed a dozen books in the Very Short Introduction series but I must say this one on Jung is the best I ve come across You will not find a clearer presentation of the life and psychology of Carl Jung uite an accomplishment since Jung s approach to the psyche and therapy is revolutionary and multifaceted Since the subjects covered in this short introduction are so rich in content for the purposes of this review here are a few uotes along with my comments starting with Jung s break with his teacher and mentor in the world of psychoanalysis Sigmund Freud As time passed Jung s differences with Freud became harder to conceal Two of Freud s basic assumptions were unacceptable to him 1 that human motivation is exclusively sexual and 2 that the unconscious mind is entirely personal and peculiar to the individual Turns out this is the difference for Jung that made all the difference In Jung s view we humans have many reasons for doing what we do well beyond the boundaries of sexuality And also the human unconscious taps into the entire range of experiences we have developed as a species over millions of years Moreover beneath the personal unconscious of repressed wishes and traumatic memories posited by Freud Jung believed there lay a deeper and important layer that he was to call the collective unconscious which contained in potenitia the entire psychic heritage of mankind The existence of this ancient basis of the mind had first been hinted to him as a child when he realized that there were things in his dreams that came from somewhere beyond himself Its existence was confirmed when he studied the delusions and hallucinations of schizophrenic patients and found them to contain symbols and images which also occurred in myths and fairy tales all over the world Again Jung acknowledged there is a personal component to the unconscious realm we encounter in our dreams but this is only the start there is an ocean of unconscious energy deeper and wider than the personal the collective unconscious Thus Jung s lifelong fascination with symbols such as mandalas numbers mythic animals light infused and shadowy superhuman presences What distinguishes the Jungian approach to developmental psychology from virtually all others is the idea that even in old age we are growing toward realization of or full potential aging was not a process of inexorable decline but a time for the progressive refinement of what is essential The decisive uestion for a man is is he related to something infinite or not A critical difference from Freud what happens in our psyche isn t always about working out our relationship with our mother and father buried in our personal past rather every stage in the human cycle childhood adolescence young adulthood middle age old age has its own powerful psychic energies and challenges It is our task to accept the challenges at each stage of our life to reach the full flowering of our humanity Thus for Jung psychotherapy isn t so much about curing illness as it is about personal growth Jung held it to be the business of the psychologist to investigate the collective unconscious and the functional units of which it is composed the archetypes as he eventually called them Archetypes are identical psychic structures common to all which together constitute the archaic heritage of humanity The author devotes two entire chapters to Jung s archetypes the Self the ego the shadow the persona the animaamimus And what is an archetype By way of example we read One example which Jung freuently uoted was that of a schizophrenic patient who told him that if he stared at the sun with half closed eyes he would see that the sun had a phallus and that this organ was the origin of the wind Years later Jung came across a Greek text describing an almost identical vision In other words the archetype images we encounter in dreams belong to a common dream language we share will all humans including our prehistoric ancestors and peoples of all world cultures and societies And according to Jung these archetypical images can be understood as promptings to encourage our growth In working on a dream the starting point for Jung was not interpretation but amplification that is to enter into the atmosphere of the dream to establish its mood as well as the detail of its images and symbols in such a way as to amplify the experience of the dream itself Then its impact on consciousness is enhanced Dreams are central to Jungian analysis And if you are interested in pursuing Jung s vision of what it means to live a full human life reading this small book would be a great place to start Coda If you would like to start working with your own dreams in a Jungian way there is short clear easy to follow instruction given by James A Hall available in booklet form at or on audible
