C.G. Jung: The Undiscovered Self (1957)
November 12, 2014 § 3 Comments
Do you hate being treated as an object in the organisational systems of bureaucrats and politicians? Does the hard sell of today’s mass consumerism repel you? Are you less than enthusiastic for the wonders of technology? Are you deeply suspicious of globalisation and all that attends it? Are you worried about the future of humanity on this ravaged planet? In this path-breaking text, C.G. Jung sets out in the clearest possible terms what one has to do, as an individual, to stand up to these trends in contemporary society. —Andrew Samuels, Professor of Analytical Psychology, University of Essex
The plight of our civilization, accurately diagnosed by Jung in Modern Man in Search of a Soul, is here presented as a speciﬁcally individual struggle for moral and spiritual integrity against the ‘mass psychology’ generated by political fanaticism, scientiﬁc materialism and technological triumphalism on a global scale. Ultimately, this is a religious as much as a psychological problem, which is not solved by passive adoption of some established creed, but by opening oneself up to the ‘religious instinctive attitude’ and inner symbolic vitality possessed by each and everyone of us by virtue of our humanity. One of Jung’s most profound, yet accessible, texts. —Anthony Stevens
In his classic, provocative work, Dr. Carl Jung—one of psychiatry’s greatest minds—argues that the future depends on our ability to resist society’s mass movements. Only by understanding our unconscious inner nature—”the undiscovered self”—can we gain the self-knowledge that is antithetical to ideological fanaticism. But this requires facing the duality of the human psyche—the existence of good and evil in us all. In this seminal book, Jung compellingly argues that only then can we cope and resist the dangers posed by those in power.
Carl Gustav Jung was, together with Freud and Adler, one of the three great pioneers in modern psychiatry. He was born in 1865 in Switzerland, where he studied medicine and psychiatry and later became one of Sigmund Freud’s early supporters and collaborators. Eventually, serious theoretical disagreements (among them Jung’s view of the religious instinct in man) led to a doctrinal and personal break between the two famed psychiatrists. Dr. Jung was the author of many books, and he lived and practiced for many years in his native Zurich. He died in 1961.
