From Our Editors

One of the most influential thinkers of our times was the psychologist Carl Jung. Thanks to him, we have a much more thorough idea of how the human mind works within the framework of modern society. The Portable Jung is a collection of his key writings and, while it is not complete - it wouldn't be portable if it were - it does cover his many theories and ideas. Through Jung's own words you'll understand the main terms along with the basics of analytical psychology. Use this book as a springboard to greater and more in-depth understanding of the influence of this important man.
