The Archetypes and the Collective Unconscious (Collected Works of C. G. Jung)
by C.G. Jung
- A slate of books that have helped me tremendously as of late: — Paris 1919 — A Little History of The World — How to Change Your Mind — Stephen King’s “On Writing” — Van Doren’s “Authentic" — Jung's “The Archetypes…” — The Great Influenza — What Happened To You? — Green Lights
The concept of 'Archteypes' and the hypothesis of 'A Collective Unconscious' are two of Jung's better known and most exciting ideas. In this volume - taken from the Collected Works and appearing in paperback for the first time - Jung describes and elaborates the two concepts. Three essays establish the theoretical basis which are then followed by essays on specific archetypes. The relation of these to the process of individuation is examined in the last section. The Archetypes and the Collective Unconscious is one of Jung's central works. There are many illustrations in full colour.
