In this book I revert to my earlier love of explicating Jung’s essays, interweaving Logos and my own whimsical Eros commentaries. Some passages may be familiar to readers, like a loved painting with a few added brush-strokes here and there.

Pocket Jung is written for the general reader who may not be acquainted with Jung’s own writings, many of which, intended for the specialist, are not easily understood by those who lack the technical knowledge that would enable them to appreciate the value and significance of Jung’s researches. Such knowledge is particularly necessary for an understanding of the alchemical research that occupied so much of his time and energy during the last twenty years of his life.

I have not attempted to make an exhaustive resume of Jung’s approach to psychic reality. Rather I have tried to set forth here some of the basic ideas on which his school of psychology rests.

The material of these chapters was originally presented over the years to an intelligent group of men and women in Columbus, Indianapolis, San Francisco, Vancouver, Winnipeg and Toronto, who were not very familiar with Jung. I hope that this relatively simple presentation may also meet the needs of a wider public. My intention has been to capture the richness of Jung’s thoughts and stimulate the reader to know more about Jung’s work and school of depth psychology. Jung’s primary aim was to raise the individual’s level of consciousness, so that she or he not be prey to unknown psychic forces, and that is my aim too. Now read on and savor some of the best of C. G. Jung.

The cover of this book is deliberately bland, so you can carry it around without anyone knowing you are discovering yourself.
