A provocative and enlightening look at spiritual unease and its contribution to the void in modern civilization Considered by many to be one of the most important books in the field of psychology, Modern Man in Search of a Soul is a comprehensive introduction to the thought of Carl Gustav Jung. In this book, Jung examines some of the most contested and crucial areas in the field of analytical psychology, including dream analysis, the primitive unconscious, and the relationship between psychology and religion. Additionally, Jung looks at the differences between his theories and those of Sigmund Freud, providing a valuable basis for anyone interested in the fundamentals of psychoanalysis.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dense, deep, and insightful work of a spiritual healer -- love it! I bought this a while ago but only recently did I get the chance to actually finish the whole book. Being a collection of essays on a wide range of topics centring on Jung's concern for the evident disconnection with our spiritual, or in more modern terms our mental health aspects of life, in his lifetime, this book is not the most light-hearted read for the summer. However, after giving it time to reflect on his essays, it became strikingly clear that many of the problems Jung analyzed in this book is still present, if not exacerbated and expanded to an even more generalized domain, nowadays. Strongly recommended for those who enjoy a thorough examination of big questions about human psychology, including topics like psychology of rituals, ancient superstitions, source of creativity of artists, problems with modern scientific/analytic accented approach to viewing the world, etc. Some parts of the book may be abstruse, but by the time you flip past the last page, you'll probably feel it's all worth it.
