In The Psychology of the Transference Jung has given an authoritative account of his handling of the transference between analyst and patient in the light of his conception of the archetypes and man’s inner life, drawing a close parallel between the modern psychotherapeutic process and the symbolical pictures in a sixteenth-century alchemical text, the Rosarium philosophorum. The bond between analyst and patient is shown to be analogous to the kinship libido between the alchemist-adept and his “mystic sister”–a link also found in the complicated kinship marriages of certain primitive societies. Kinship libido plays an essential role in individuation and in establishing an organic society based on the psychic connection of its members.

Edition:1st Edition
About the Author:Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) was a Swiss psychiatrist, an influential thinker and the founder of analytical psychology (also known as Jungian psychology). Jung's radical approach to psychology has been influential in the field of depth psychology and in counter-cultural movements across the globe. Jung is considered as the first modern psychologist to state that the human psyche is "by nature religious" and to explore it in depth. His many major works include "Analytic Psychology: Its Theory and Practice," "Man and His Symbols," "Memories, Dreams, Reflections," "The Collected Works of Carl G. Jung," and "The Red Book."
