Listing Detail Tabs

This is an auction for CARL GUSTAV JUNG by Frank McLynn.

"This is a thorough and often critical biography of the second most important figure in 20th-century psychology. Biographer and intellectual historian McLynn appropriately devotes a great deal of space to the final break in 1912 between Freud and Jung. The author does an excellent job of delineating their intellectual differences: In contrast to psychology's founding father, Jung rejected the near-monocausality of sexuality for psychological disorders, downplayed the role of transference in treatment, and was sympathetic to religion's role in the search for meaning and psychic health. McLynn demonstrates how disturbed many of Jung's most important personal relationships were. On the most controversial aspect of the Swiss thinker's life, McLynn is restrained and fair-minded but pulls no punches in revealing how Jung was ``at best ambivalent and, at worst, openly supportive'' toward the Nazis in the 1930s. And if he was often intellectually insightful and culturally sophisticated, Jung was also prone to fatuous one-dimensional judgments of others. In addition, Jung's presentation of his ideas often was stylistically murky and sometimes even self-contradictory. This very solid, well-paced biography will help readers understand both why Jung was so intensely admired and hated, and why, in terms of intellectual influence, he came to be so thoroughly overshadowed by his great nemesis, Freud."
