Founded in 1955 under the editorship of Michael Fordham and with the encouragement of C. G. Jung, The Journal of analytical Psychology is the leading international Jungian journal. The ^Journal explores the practice as well as the theory of Jung's ideas and is dedicated to the comprehensive and in-depth presentation of current thinking among Jungian analysts. As well as important contributions to clinical practice, the Journal includes explorations of the arts, philosophy, theology and religion; trends in psychoanalysis; and the relationship between analytical psychology and social sciences.
` … these lectures and discussions will not only be appreciated by analytical psychologists, but will also appeal to those who are interested in getting a vivid picture of Jung's personality. The liveliness of his language, with little use of technical terms, makes the book rewarding and interesting reading.' - R. Strauss, Journal of Analytical Psychology
`This book gives a very good exposition of Professor C.G. Jung's theories concerning the structure and contents of the mind, and of his three methods of investigation, viz. work association, dream analysis and active imagination. The five lectures make lively reading and abound with pithy or witty statements.' - I. Atkin, British Journal of Psychiatry
` … these lectures and ensuing discussions are basically verbatim transcripts and retain all the humour and mischief of the original events. As a summary of Jung's work and views, at least up to that time, and as a foundation for understanding Jung, they could hardly be surpassed, and anyone seeking an entrance to his work should perhaps start here.' - JWT Redfearn, The British Journal of Psychiatry
`…an excellent introduction to the principles on which Jung's work rested. In addition, this record of his spoken works conveys a lasting impression of his personality. His style of delivery is lively and engaging, his mind is curious, hungry and well-informed and he approaches a wide variety of topics with authority. His directness and sharpness of wit made him readily accessible to his audience.' - Lynette Rentoul, Nursing Times
