Jung described himself as a phenomenologist, yet the significance of this has not been systematically explored, either by Jung's followers or by those situated more centrally in the phenomenological tradition. This book takes the central concepts of contemporary analytical psychology and re-interprets them within a phenomenological framework in order to achieve two goals: firstly that of providing a deeper understanding of Jung's psychology than has previously been available, and secondly that of showing how a phenomenological analytical psychology might emerge. "Jung and Phenomenology" is a seminal contribution to Jungian scholarship, to existential phenomenology and to analytical psychology. In bringing together these differing fields of 20th-century thought, the book inevitably draws in ideas from related domains, such as hermeneutics, poetics and aesthetics. It should be of interest to anyone seriously concerned with developments in these disciplines.

This 2009 Trivium printing of Jung and phenomenology has numerous typological errors. In some versions, the pages in the Table of Contents do not even match the pages in the book itself. It is a mess. Trivium is a print on demand publisher, and has agreed not to print any more of these books. The original publisher, Routledge, has recently (January 2015) republished the book as a "Classic Edition" and this version is recommended. I made a few minor changes to the original edition, mostly in phrasing and updating a few endnotes. I ask potential buyers only to purchase the Routledge edition. Thanks, Roger Brooke.About the Author:
