Summary

Summary

This book provides an objective, historical approach to the sometimes controversial issues in the life and work of C.G. Jung. As an alternative to Freud, Jung had his detractors and his admirers. If the former were too critical, the latter sometimes overlooked flaws. Why did he break with Freud? Was he empirical or mystical? Was he anti-Nazi or, for a time, "a Nazi sympathizer"? Why was his Answer to Job controversial? This book was written with the conviction that the time has come to frame the issues through writings by Jung and distinguished authors on Jung, considering perspectives from both sides. Contributors: Brian Feldman, Walter Kaufmann, J.J. Clarke, Barbara Stephens, Geoffrey Cocks, Aryeh Maidenbaum, Andrew Samuels, Victor White, H.L. Philip, Kathleen Newton.
