C.G. Jung

By: Edward Armstrong Bennet

$24.95

E.A. Bennet’s biography of C. G. Jung went to press just a few days before Jung’s death in 1961. Over the preceding fifteen years, Bennet had met frequently with Jung at his home and stayed there as his guest. Their many talks—about Jung’s childhood, his family, his career and the development of his ideas—yielded the material for this authorized biography. Thanks to Bennet’s unique opportunities to hear Jung’s personal perspective—on subjects from Freud to Hitler, and including a valuable correspondence about Aion—regarded as Jung’s most “difficult” book—C.G. Jung sheds new light for today’s scholars on Jung’s work and on the man himself.

Description

E.A. Bennet’s biography of C.G. Jung went to press just a few days before Jung’s death in 1961. Over the preceding fifteen years, Bennet had met frequently with Jung at his home and stayed there as his guest. Their many talks–about Jung’s childhood, his family, his career and the development of his ideas–yielded the material for this authorized biography.

In the months before publication, Jung read and corrected Bennet’s book in typescript, making this the only biography of Jung to have been written during the subject’s life with is supervision and approval. Thanks to Bennet’s unique opportunities to hear Jung’s personal perspective–on subjects from Freud to Hitler, and including a valuable correspondence about Aion, regarded as Jung’s most “difficult” book–C.G. Jung promises to shed new light for today’s scholars on Jung’s work and on the man himself.
