The Latin term puer aeternus means eternal youth. In Jungian psychology it is used to describe a certain type of man - charming, affectionate, creative and ever in pursuit of his dreams. These are the men who remain adolescent well into their adult years, generally full of life yet strangely draining to those around them. We have worked with them, loved them and watched them wave good-bye.

It is impossible to overstate the influence on both men and women of this classic study, originally a series of lectures at the Zurich Jung Institute. It is Jungian psychology in its most down-to-earth voice, telling it like it is so accurately and with such a depth of understanding that it is still much in demand even though it has been out of print for many years. This new edition features a Bibliography and an extensive Index.

About the Author:

Marie-Louise von Franz, Ph.D., worked closely with Jung for almost 30 years. She is known world-wide for her many books on the practical application of Jungian psychology, including six other titles in this series.
"This book opened my eyes to my personal psychology at a time when I was on my knees. Dr. von Franz's analysis of men who sounded suspiciously like me, devastating as it was to my self-image, offered an implicit alternative to killing myself. Needless to say, I took the alternative - I went into analysis." - Daryl Sharp
