On the Nature of the Animus and The Anima as an Elemental Being: two classic papers on the psyche written by Emma Jung (1882 1955), psychoanalyst, writer, and wife of C.G. Jung. First published in English in 1955, they are required reading for training Jungian analysts. How do animus and anima, these all-important Jungian concepts, appear in dreams, fantasies, behavior, and mythology? This book maps a way toward an understanding of the union of opposites and the emergence of the self. There is wisdom in Emma Jung’s words, simplicity in her style, and we feel the movement of animus and anima in her soul.
