Review: Man and His Symbols
Man and His Symbols by C.G. Jung
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The psychology of C.G. Jung was a modern system, constructed at the touching point between what is typically labelled as science and what is commonly called religion, which, I would argue, offered us one of the most accurate and necessary diagnoses and prescriptions for the state of mankind -- both as a collective and as individuals. This book is a popular presentation of that psychological-religious-philosophical-scientific theory written by Jung and by several of his most astute students. While I do not agree with every conclusion that Jung and his students/fellow-authors reach here, I do recommend this book, particularly Jung's opening chapter, as an excellent look at, to use Jung's terminology from another of his books, "modern man in search of a soul."
