Inner City Books is proud to present these five meaty essays by the late dean of American Jungian analysts. Overall, they trace the spiritual effects of the slow evolution of modern consciousness and the relatively recent discovery of the unconscious. Once modern individuals begin the life-long dialogue with the complexes and archetypes, life changes utterly. There is no going back to a life lived only on the surface.
According to C.G. Jung, 'Whoever knows God has an effect on him.' Thus, our efforts to broaden and deepen our individual consciousness is no small event. We are changed, but so too is the God-image. This is the essence of the science of the soul.
