C.G. Jung died in 1961, without ever having presented a systematic summary of his psychology. For the past thirty years his ideas have been explained, explored and amplified by thousands of others, with varying results.
Jung Lexicon takes the reader to the source. It was designed for those seeking an understanding of relevant terms and concepts as they were used by Jung himself. There are choice extracts from his Collected Works, but no references to other writers.
Jung Lexicon is not a critique or defense of Jun’s thought, but a guide to its richness and an illustration of the broad scope and interrelationship of his interests.
Compiled from a close reading of Jung’s major writings, with informed commentary, diagrams and detailed index, Jung Lexicon contains a comprehensive overview of the basic principles of analytical psychology.
