From the authorís introduction:

This book was inspired by Jungís cogent observation on the seriousness of nonsense:

People sometimes think that analysis will take the place of life; they protect themselves in that way against much nonsense that might be lived. But mind you, if you donít live your nonsense you will never have lived at all, and the meaning of life is surely that it is lived, not avoided.

Nonsense does not always involve Eros, and the erotic is not always nonsense. But in my experience the two have generally gone hand in hand. This book recounts some of my own and othersí nonsense and hopes to give some insights into what that might mean in life.

Nonsense is not necessarily frivolous, foolish or sinful. It may be politically or socially incorrect, but it is often a pointer to the essence of oneís personality, which is what we Jungians call individuationóbecoming who you were meant to be. This is far, and only the swift reach it and are delighted.

A Jungian with a sense of humor? Not an oxymoron, but Daryl Sharp. Here is an author able to put complex ideas into words and real-life situations that laymen can understand. It is a rare ability. óRobertson Davies, author of Fifth Business, The Manticore and The Cunning Man.
