Winner of the 1994 Award for Best Professional/Scholarly Book in Psychology, Association of American Publishers

The classic path-breaking contextual history of the development of C.G. Jung's thought and Nietzschean religious movement.

The international sensation that was published in Portuguese (Brazil), Swedish, Danish, Japanese, Chinese and Italian translations.

" Richard Noll gives us the 'historical Jung': his goal is neither to idealize nor denigrate Jung but to recover the diverse cultural and intellectual contexts out of which Jung's ideas emerged and to highlight the complex personal, professional, and ideological functions of the early Jung movement. Exceptionally, almost universally, well-read in the field of post-Enlightenment German-languate culture and thought, Noll is ideally suited to this task. . . . it is impossible, henceforth to claim that Jung scholarship is in any way 'behind' Freud Studies."
                                                                                historian Mark S. Micale, Yale University

             "Richard Noll's careful, well-researched and well-reasoned study of the cultural context of Jung's psychology presents the centrality of notions of race and power extrapolated from the reception of Nietzsche's thought at the turn of the century. . . A brilliant must-read for any scholar seriously interested in the history of psychoanalysis/"
                                                                         historian Sander L. Gilman, Cornell University

". . . an important study . . . " Frederick Crews, The New York Review of Books

"This is by far the best book written on Jung to date . . . . Noll's presentation of the volkisch idelogy is excellent and deserves to be read by even those who have little or no interest in Jung's thinking." Martin Kusch, British Journal for the History of Science

From the Inside Flap:

From the Fontana Press paperback  edition (UK) of 1995:

"The Jung Cult makes a highly original, daring and important contribution to Jung scholarship. Noll has elevated the social and cultural history of this topic to a new and fascinating level of sophistication."
      Frank Sulloway, author of Freud: Biologist of the Mind

"Richard Noll has made a signal contribution to the study of the life, thought, and followers of Carl G. Jung, and through that to the study of depth psychology as a whole . . . all those who hold Carl G. Jung in high esteem also owe a debt of thanks to Richard Noll, even though he will be persona non grata with many of them."
     Peter Homans, University of Chicago, San Francisco Jung Institute Library Journal

"Any historical work done on Jung's life or his theoretical development will have to address Noll's Body of data."
    George Hogenson, Psychoanalytic Books

This is undoubtedly the best book about Jung and his movement which has yet been written."
    Richard Webster, author of Why Freud Was Wrong

"Noll's scholarship contextualizes Jung in an era teeming with scientific and occult influences: it is a tremendous piece of work, from which there is no going back."
      Doris McIlwain, Metascience

From the Back Cover:


"Richard Noll gives us 'the historical Jung': his goal is neither to idealize nor denigrate Jung but to recover the diverse cultural and intellectual contexts out of which Jung's ideas emerged. . . . With this book . . . It is impossible to claim that Jung scholarship is any way 'behind' Freud studies."--Mark S. Micale, Yale University


"[This] careful, well-researched and well-reasoned study of the cultural context of Jung's psychology presents the centrality of notions of race and power extrapolated from the reception of Nietzsche's thought at the turn of the century. . . . A brilliant must-read for any scholar seriously interested in the history of psychoanalysis."--Sander L. Gilman, Cornell University

Book Description SIMON SCHUSTER, United States, 1997. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. In this provocative reassessment of C. G. Jung s thought, Richard Noll boldly argues that such ideas as the collective unconscious and the theory of the archetypes come as much from late nineteenth-century occultism, neo- paganism, and social Darwinian teachings as they do from natural science. Noll sees the break with Sigmund Freud in 1912 not as a split within the psychoanalytic movement but as Jung s turning away from science and his founding of a new religion, which offered a rebirth ( individuation ), surprisingly like that celebrated in ancient mystery cult teachings. Jung, in fact, consciously inaugurated a cult of personality centered on himself and passed down to the present by a body of priest-analysts extending this charismatic movement, or personal religion, to late twentieth-century individuals.Noll carefully reconstructs the intellectual currents of fin-de-si.
