Noted analyst and author Murray Stein explains what the psychological process of transformation, more commonly known as a midlife crisis, actually is, and what it means for an individual to experience it. Consciously working through this life stage can lead people to become who they have always potentially been. Indeed, Stein suggests, transformation is an essential human task. Stein first details how this process of transformation emerges and develops in an individual. Looking at C. G. Jung's life, Stein then explains how transformative images stimulate the transformation process by suggesting new ways of thinking and living. Finally, Stein examines the process in the lives of Jung, Picasso, and Rembrandt, whose experiences of transformation led to even greater creativity and freedom. For those people who would like to learn what a meaningful second half of life could be like, Transformation is an inspiring place to start.

Full Description:

A thirty-five-year-old woman dreams of a butterfly and wonders where her own life is going. A wealthy American sees a picture of Albert Schweitzer and decides to become a physician and establish a clinic in Haiti. Most of us would say these people are experiencing midlife crises. More accurately, they have entered a deep psychological process called transformation.

In Transformation: Emergence of the Self, noted analyst and author Murray Stein explains what this process is, and what it means for an individual to experience it. Transformation usually occurs at midlife but is much more complicated than what we colloquially call a midlife crisis. Consciously working through this life stage can lead people to become who they truly are and have always potentially been. Indeed, Stein suggests, transformation is the essential human task.

Stein first details how transformation occurs and why it so often occurs in midlife, using the example of poet Rainer Maria Rilke. Looking at C. G. Jung's life, Stein then explains how transformative images stimulate the transformation process by suggesting new ways of thinking and living. Intimate relationships, like those between a husband and a wife or a doctor and a patient, can also play a very powerful role in transformation. Finally, Stein examines the process in the lives of three important people, Jung, Picasso, and Rembrandt, whose experiences of transformation led to even greater creativity and freedom.

For those people who would like to learn what a meaningful second half of life could be like, Transformation: Emergence of the Self is an inspiring place to start. -- from the publisher
