The Rupture of Time aims to clarify what Jung really meant by synchronicity, why the idea was so important to him and how it informed his thinking about modern Western culture. Areas examined include: how theory fits into Jung's overall psychological model, the signficance of apparent theoretical inconsistencies, how Jung applied the theory of synchronicity to his own critiques and the continuing relevance of synchronicity to the understanding of detranditionalized religion. Focusing closely on Jung's own writings and statements, this book discloses that the theory of sychronicity is not an inconsequential addendum to analytical psychology but is central to the psychological project that occupied Jung throughout his professional life. This much-needed clarification of one of Jung's central tenets will be of great interest to all analytical psychologists and scholars engaged with Jungian thought.
