Editorial Reviews

"This splendid book is an adventure! It gives many different entr¿ to Jung's work. The uniting theme is the authors' generosity. They tell us their personal paths into Jung's ideas and illuminate his insights from their unique personalities. This leads readers Reading Jung to trust their own paths to enter Jung's thought. The gift multiplies. "Ann Belford Ulanov, Ph.D. Jungian analyst. "In putting together this extraordinary collection of authors and ideas, the editors offer us a unique text that is not only informative, provocative and path breaking but also challenges the reader to explore her/his own multiple readings of Jung.¿ The book is destined to be a creativity engine for Jungian Studies". Joe Cambray, Ph.D., President, IAAP "So many striking approaches to Jung and his work - and so many 'Jungs' to approach! It is a delight to follow the stories of this unique and original gathering of writers - who by definition are also readers - and to reflect upon and reconsider one's own attitudes." Robert Hinshaw, Jungian analyst and publisher, Einsiedeln, Switzerland "For most of the psychological world, the depth of Jung¿s achievement is yet fully to be discerned, even as those who have studied him for years continue to find new layers of meaning and provocative observation. While the eleven essays from these seasoned Jungian scholars and analysts illustrate how each continues finding new contours to the Jungian terrain, all of them offer their own original insights into the on-going development of analytic psychology. The reader not only learns more of Jung¿s vast contribution, but receives a richer range of lenses through which to see the world, as well as an invitation to greater self-reflection." James Hollis, Ph. D., Zurich-trained Jungian analyst and author
